Ingredients

  • 6 heaped tsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 large banana, peeled
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 120g (4oz) self-raising flour
  • 50ml (2fl oz) milk (or 50g (1¾ oz), if you don’t have a measuring jug)
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar, plus extra for dusting

Instructions

1
Place six individual tsp mounds of peanut butter on a plate and place in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.
2
While the peanut butter firms up in the freezer, mash the banana in a mixing bowl using a fork, then mix in the eggs and icing sugar, followed by the flour and milk. Ensure everything is combined – it will be a little lumpy because of the banana.
3
Place the frying pan over a medium flame and allow it to heat up, then spoon in the first three pancakes, using 2 tbsp batter for each.
4
Once bubbles start to appear, place one mound of the firmed-up peanut butter into the centre of each pancake and cover with another tbsp of batter.
5
Flip the pancakes and leave to cook for about a minute before placing on a plate. Repeat steps 3-5 again for the remaining batter, then stack the pancakes on a plate, dust with icing sugar and serve.
