Banana Pancakes – So light and fluffy!


Banana Pancakes batter whipped up in seconds! The Thermomix makes light work of quick batters such as this one.

This light and fluffy pancake recipe is sweetened with fruit!  If you are not planning on serving with a sweet sauce, you may like to add 1 tablespoon of honey to the ingredients.

My hot tip for you is to whip up a quick sauce in thermie while you’re frying the pancakes. I highly recommend my Simple Strawberry Sauce, and my Fast Blueberry Sauce!

I made two batches today for my boys: * The first I added 20g of Rice Malt Syrup – I wouldn’t say they were particularly sweet with that addition. They ate the lot – mostly plain, some with honey or maple syrup. * Due to the resounding success of the first batch, I made a second for lunchboxes. This time I added a small number dried cranberries with the flour and rest of the ingredients. Verdict = very tasty. It adds the little bit of sweetness and another fruit element.
