Pancakes: everyone’s favourite comfort food!

Mhmm, the mere mention of pancakes conjures up the taste of its fluffiness, warmness and drizzled with the oh-so-delightful maple syrup (in our opinion, is the highlight). Along with the contrasting saltiness of melted butter… real comfort food right there! If like us, you are done paying for fast food pancakes and want to get your hands dirty, we’ve got some interesting recipes for you! If you’re not so much into the cooking, then check out our pancake story!

Banana Pancakes (Made Entirely From That!) from Eugenie Kitchen

Fantastic for those who are allergic to gluten, or you are simply running out of flour. Plus with only 3 ingredients, we found this recipe to be especially useful when its raining outside and you are in need of a quick fixer!

Ingredients

1 1/2 large bananas, ripe to overripe (200g) *

2 eggs

1/8 teaspoon baking powder

Maple syrup, butter, blueberries, to serve (optional)

Tip: Don’t add too many bananas. The pancake will not hold. There should be enough egg to hold mashed banana together.

Directions

First, crack 2 eggs in a bowl and whisk to break.Then in another bowl add in 1 1/2 large bananas and lightly mash with a potato masher or a fork, but not too much. There should be chunks of bananas to make fluffy pancakes. And use only ripe bananas.

Then add egg mixture and 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder into mashed bananas and stir to combine. Now cook mini pancakes over medium low heat. 1 or 2 tablepoons for each. When the baking powder is activated, flip it over and cook for about one minute more. You can skip baking powder, but then it will feel like banana omelets rather than pancakes. Blueberries are always good with pancakes. And serve immediately when hot.
