Ingredients

For the pancakes

  • 200 g self-raising flour
  • 25 g sugar
  • 2 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 250 ml milk
  • Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Chips

For the bananas

  • 55 g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1-2 tbsp hot water
  • 2 bananas, peeled, sliced
  • a knob of butter

To serve

  • chopped hazelnuts
  • chocolate chips
  • maple syrup

Instructions

1
To make the pancake batter, add the flour, sugar and golden syrup to a large jug. Add the egg, then gradually add the milk, whisking constantly to create a smooth batter. Add a handful of chocolate chips and mix gently until evenly spread through the batter.
2
For the caramelised bananas, gently heat the sugar, vanilla essence and water in a saucepan until the sugar melts and the mixture forms a caramel. Add the banana slices to the pan and shake to coat them in the caramel, then add the butter and heat for another 1-2 minutes. Set aside.
3
Place a non-stick frying pan on a high heat. Add a very small amount of butter and heat until smoking.
4
Spoon enough batter mix into the pan to make pancakes about 12cm (4½in) across, leaving a 1cm (½in) gap between each – you should be able to make two pancakes at once.
5
Cook until the top surface of each pancake is completely covered with bubbles, then turn over and cook the other side for about a minute. Remove from the pan and repeat until all your batter is used up – depending on the size of your frying pan, you should have 10 pancakes in total.
6
Starting with a pancake on the bottom, layer up the stacks by alternating pancakes with layers of caramelised banana slices, using five pancakes for each stack. Finish with a topping of bananas, a sprinkling of chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips and a drizzle of maple syrup.
