This is one of the easiest, tastiest and healthiest breakfasts that I have made. These pancakes are perfect as evening snacks too. Its also an easy way of sneaking in the banana for kids/adults(like me :-) ) who run away even hearing the word banana. I found this recipe in Tarla Dalal's "Cooking for Kids" mini series. The original recipe called for adding a tbsp of butter to the batter which I omitted. Also, while making the pancakes, I used very minimal ghee(2 to 3 drops per pancake) instead of a tsp of butter per pancake..
Ingredients to make around 6 pancakes
All Purpose flour/Maida: 1 cup Mashed Ripe banana: 1/2 cup(I got 1/2 cup mashed banana from 3 small sized bananas) Walnut: 1/4 cup(chopped) Warm Milk: 3/4 cup Castor Sugar: 4 tbsp Vanilla Essence: 1/2 tsp Baking Powder: 3/4 tsp Ghee or butter to cook the pancakes
1. Combine all the ingredients except ghee/butter in a bowl. Mix well to make a smooth batter, making sure that no lumps remain. 2. Heat a non-stick pan, spread 3 to 4 tbsp (or 3/4th of ladle) of batter to make a thick pancake. 3. Cook the pancake over medium heat using a little ghee to cook both sides until golden brown. 4. Repeat the same for the rest of the batter. 5. Serve hot with honey or jam.
