As a change from my usual breakfast toast, I decided to make the Blogilates banana pancakes.
Attempt 1? Catastrophe. I think it was from using just egg whites and whisking in too much air, but my pancakes resolutely refused to flip and things got messy. They still tasted yummy though. But I wanted to have another go to get them just right.
On my second try I used one whole egg and one egg white, and beat the mixture together with a fork the bare minimum it took for them to combine.
Result? Perfection. They’re soft and fluffy, and taste great with only two ingredients!
Adapted from Blogilates
Serves 1 (makes a small stack of 5)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 whole egg and 1 egg white (or 2 whole eggs if you’re following the Blogilates recipe)
- Spray oil
Mash the banana with a fork. Gently mix in the egg until combined. Put the batter into a jug. Heat up 2 non-stick frying pans on a medium heat, and spray with oil so the pancakes won’t stick. Pour a little batter into each pan to form your pancakes. Flip over gently once the top is no longer gooey.
