Yields4 ServingsPrep Time15 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time25 mins

This recipe is great for using up any leftover yogurt and over-ripe bananas. You can also experiment by adding a few sultanas, flaked almonds or a few soft berries to the batter. Adding the yogurt to the batter makes them healthier however you could make the batter with just milk if you prefer.

 1 egg lightly beaten
 125 ml milk
 2 over-ripe bananas, mashed with a fork
 150 g plain flour
 A pinch of salt
 2 tsp baking powder
 1 tbsp brown sugar
 125 ml natural yoghurt

Mix together the egg, milk, yogurt and bananas.


Sieve the flour and salt with the baking powder into a large bowl, stir in the ‘wet’ ingredients and the sugar. The batter will look a little lumpy.


Transfer to a mixing jug and allow to stand for 10 minutes.


Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over a medium heat until smoking hot, turn the heat down and pour small amounts of batter into the pan. Cook in batches on each side until golden.


Use a palette knife to flip the pancakes, put onto a plate in a warm place until you have finished cooking all the pancakes.


Serve with the Apple and Berry Compote (and extra yogurt if liked).
