Banana Lava Pancakes - Recipe.

Pancake day is almost here. My family loves pancakes but we don't eat them often enough. This time every year I always say we should eat them more but never do but I am going to make an effort over the next year to have pancakes on a weekend as a treat.

There are so many pancake recipes out there but here is another to make sure you're not falling flat of inspiration on the 1st March. Banana Lava Pancakes look like such a treat.

Banana Lava Pancakes

Boasting fluffy banana pancakes filled with a gooey peanut butter center, this recipe makes for an indulgent start to Pancake Day! Why not try swapping out peanut butter for Nutella or Biscoff spread for an equally delicious filling!

Makes 6 pancakes

6 heaped teaspoons of smooth peanut butter.
1 large banana.
2 eggs.
120g self-raising flour.
50ml milk (or 50g, if you don’t have a measuring jug).
2 tbsp icing sugar (plus extra for dusting).

Mixing bowl
Non-stick frying pan

Place 6 individual tsp mounds of peanut butter on the plate and place in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

Whilst the peanut butter firms up in the freezer, mash the banana in the 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.

Place the frying pan over a medium flame and allow it to heat up, then spoon in the first 3 pancakes (2 tbsp batter for each).

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.

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, stack the pancakes on a plate, dust with icing sugar and serve.

Tip: You can omit the peanut butter, or use chocolate spread or Biscoff spread for different flavoured pancakes

  3. I have made pancakes with bananas before but not like this. They look yummy! I don't know if we will do pancake day this week. I've bought supplies but I may have to get the other's to cook them as it's treatment week for me. Or we could catch up on the weekend. x
