Anytime Pancakes

Pancakes make a regular appearance in our house and this recipe is a dream because the girls love getting involved- in fact they know the recipe off by heart! The fruit provides some natural sweetness but you can always add a bit of honey or maple syrup! These also make great afternoon snacks or lunchbox fillers.


Makes 15 american pancakes


1 cup flour ( plain or spelt or a combination)

1 cup milk (whatever you usually use)

1 egg, beaten

1 banana, mashed or 1 grated apple/pear

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tbsp honey, optional


Whiz everything up in a blender and leave for 30minutes (or overnight if you have time). Heat a large frying pan or pancake griddle and once hot pour the batter onto the pan (about 2 tbsp per pancake) and cook until bubbles appear. Flip and cook for 1 minute or until golden. Remove and keep warm before serving with your choice of toppings.

Serve immediately with a good dose of honey + a squeeze of lemon or spread with our almond and cocoa 'nutella'. I also sometimes like to add a slice of apple on one side when cooking- sprinkling over a bit of cinnamon and then flipping- it looks so pretty and is delicious when drizzled with maple syrup.
