I am a self-professed pancake lover!! I would happily eat them every day if I could. These pancakes are what I like to call special occasion pancakes. You are not going to make them every day but when you do, you are in for a serious treat!
Pineapple would work great caramelized on top as a variation to orange and banana.
If you need anymore pancake inspiration try one of my other recipes. After all Who Doesn’t Love Pancakes!!
- 1 egg
- 2 medium over-ripe bananas
- zest of 1 mandarin orange
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 50mls milk or buttermilk
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp brown sugar or ½ tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp plain Greek-style or natural yoghurt
- 1 tsp seed mix (linseed, poppy, chia, sesame, buckwheat groats)
- Whisk together 1 banana, eggs, orange zest, baking powder and milk until smooth.
- Add the flour and whisk again until well combined.
- Melt 1/3 of the coconut oil on a non-stick pan over a medium heat.
- Place 1/3 of the pancake batter on the pan and cook through. Flip over and continue to cook.
- Remove from the pan and keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter making two more pancakes. Keep pancakes warm as you caramelize the fruit.
- Melt the butter and brown sugar together in the frying pan over a medium heat until it begins to bubble. Slice the banana into slices and cut the orange into three.
- Place the fruit onto the pan and spoon over the syrup. Cook for 2 minutes on a high heat until evenly browned.
- To serve: spoon yoghurt between pancakes to create a tower. Top with the caramelized fruit and sprinkle over the seeds. Spoon over any remaining syrup from the frying pan.
