banana pancakes

I saw these on Jack Monroe's blog, and they are just *delicious*! Adapted slightly to suit our house pancake style.

100g wholemeal flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of sode
a pinch of cream of tartar
a pinch of salt
100ml milk (approx)
1 egg
1 large banana, or 2 medium
1 tbsp groundnut oil

Mash the banana(s) with a fork in a large mixing bowl. Add the flour, bicarbonate, cream of tartar and salt. Then add egg and milk, and mix together with a fork till you have a batter. You might need less or more milk, depending on juiciness of the banana.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add a tablespoon of batter. Cook on a medium heat for a minute or two on each side. Scoff.

You could, if feeling adventurous, spread these with butter, or a dollop of cream or creme fraiche. You could add dried fruit, such as sultanas. Or chocolate drops. Or a pinch of cinnamon. We just eat them as they come out of the pan - they're fab.
