Banana Hotcakes

Yesterday I said that I was trying to write a post everyday, well, here’s the second day!

Also yesterday I made the girls banana hotcakes for breakfast.  These are reasonably healthy breakfasts that are like pancakes.  Actually, mine were more like pikelets.  Anyhow, this is the recipe along with my serving suggestion.


Banana Hotcakes:


1 cup flour

2 tablespoons (tbsp) sugar

2 teaspoons (tsp) baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon (the recipe actually calls for 1/8 tsp of cinnamon, but come on, who has a 1/8 tsp measure?!  1/4 is a whole lot easier to measure out.)

1 egg

1 cup milk

1 cup mashed banana

3 tbsp oil

2 tsp lemon juice

How to make the hotcakes:

In a large bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon).

In a small bowl mix together everything else (egg, milk, banana, oil and lemon juice).

Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until everything is just mixed.

Put a frying pan on a medium heat and add some butter to it, when the butter is sizzling and is all melted add a few spoonfuls of the batter in small sections.  Lift the edge of one of the hotcakes and flip it over if it is golden on the bottom.  Repeat this process for the rest of the batter.

My serving suggestion is to put a blueberry (or any kind of berry) into the middle of the hotcake and sprinkle raw sugar over the entire hotcake before you turn it.  The blueberry will come out delicious and the sugar should caramelise the bottom of the hotcake.

Serve hot and enjoy.

Note: This recipe make HEAPS of hotcakes so you really can’t scoff them all yourself, even the girls didn’t eat them all, they ate the rest for lunch!


Tell me if you’ve tried this recipe and what you thought of it.  Do you have a favourite breakfast recipe, tell me all about it, I’d love to hear about all of my reader’s favourites.

Let’s see if we can continue this post-a-thon (my new name for my month of posts) for the next 29 days!
