mini Banana pancake sandwich

I whipped up these cute mini beauties to have with my brothers and sisters after a morning yoga class at my teacher’s place. It was a perfect, sharing pick-me-up and eat kinda breakfast with no fuss at all. What’s not to like? Banana, pancake, maple syrup on toothpicks? Bring it on πŸ˜‰

mini banana sandwich

First off to make the banana pancake batter, you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cup self-rasing flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 very ripe medium-sized banana
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Butter for greasing the pan before frying

To serve:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • Toothpicks
  • Maple syrup for drizzling to your liking

To make:

  • In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar and salt
  • Β In another bowl mash the banana and whisk it together with the eggs, milk and vanilla extract
  • Now pour all the wet ingredients into the dry one and gently, please gently mix the two with a wooden spoon until barely combined.

Ps- the less time you spend turning and mixing, the less gluten will form and the less chewy your pancakes will be. Therefore making it fluffy and melt in the mouth ;-).

  • Now grease your pan or griddle with the butter until evenly coated and ladle on the batter onto the pan.
  • Fry until bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pancake, then flip it over and fry on the other side for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Continue with the rest of the batter.
  • Now cut the pancakes into squares as best as you can (without freaking out about having perfect squares)
  • Arrange as shown in the pictures above and below, starting with pancake, slice of banana, topped with another pancake square. Then insert a toothpick right down the middle and et voila, your pancake kebab it ready πŸ™‚
  • Drizzle over with maple syrup before serving, as this pancake batter is not a very sweet one so you can be generous.
  • Done.

Enjoy mes amis et bon Mardi πŸ™‚
