Father’s Day Recipes: Banana Pancakes

Pancakes of any kind are the perfect weekend breakfast treat. Whip up a batch of these Banana Pancakes this weekend, or treat dad to a special Father’s Day breakfast-in-bed next Sunday.


– 2 cups of self-raising flour
– 1/2 cup of plain flour
– 2 tbs raw sugar
– 2 1/3 cups of milk
– 80g of melted butter, cooled
– 1 egg, lightly wisked
– Canola spray oil
– 3 banana’s chopped
– Honey to serve


1. Sift flours into a bowl, add sugar and stir to combine.

2. Add milk, melted butter and egg; and whisk to combine.

3. Heat a large pan over medium heat and spray with canola spray oil.

4. Add as many of a 1/3 cup of mixture to the pan as will fit. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface on the pancake, around 2 minutes. Turn over and cook for another minute. You can vary the sizes of the pancakes, which is great for presentation but be mindful that the cooking time will also vary.

5. Transfer pancakes to a plate and top with either another plate or a clean tea towel. I don’t recommend putting them in to oven to keep warm as they can dry out and become rubbery.

6. Wipe out the pan, spray with a little more oil and repeat until the mixture is finished. If you find the pan is getting too hot, which it probably will, turn the pan onto a low heat. This should be enough heat to cook the pancakes as you get to the end of the mixture.

7. Serve the pancakes stacked on a plate, topped with fresh banana slices and drizzled with honey – delicious!
