Fruity pancakes

Posted on Thursday, 26th February, 2009. Filed under: baking, recipes |

I really have to write here more often, every time I come back it’s different and even more confusing… Anyway.

Between the ME and a yucky cold I wasn’t well enough to make pancakes on Tuesday, and felt very deprived! I’m finally feeling up to some light cooking, but although I’m not bad at the traditional thin British pancakes they’re a bit fiddly at the best of times, so I went for something I couldn’t mess up. I have a lovely new big, sturdy frying pan too because it had £10 off 🙂 Getting the hang of what setting the hob needed to be on with a new pan meant that most of them were rather black, until the last two perfectly golden ones, but they were still tasty!

1 medium banana, very ripe
175g forest fruits yoghurt
1 large egg
100g self-raising flour

With a fork, mash the banana in a bowl, then whisk in the egg and yoghurt. Add flour and mix thoroughly with a spoon. Drop in spoonfuls onto a hot, lightly greased frying pan. When bubbles form on the surface, flip over and cook on the other side until set and golden. Cool any you’re not eating immediately between layers of kitchen paper.

My yoghurt is a Lidl one because it’s the only unthickened one I can find these days – still haven’t forgiven Yeo Valley for putting yucky tapioca starch in theirs, which I used to love! – so you might need to add a touch of milk to slacken it off to the right consistency if you’re using a more typical one. And of course, forest fruits is just one I happened to have. Strawberry would be a classic combination with the banana.

Hmm, writing this is making me want seconds as I have leftovers cooling on the worktop… I ended up with I think 9 or 10, using a dessert spoon to drop them.
