Above and below are the sort of pancakes you will either love or hate. You have two options. Choose to envisage above and below as a downright ruddy delicious full fat soft, airy and fluffy item of love, or a more gruesome 1 egg 1 banana combination. Whichever you choose, I have provided the recipe for both. Happy Pre Pancake Day!
30 grams butter, melted
30 grams sugar
1 large egg
125 grams plain flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Sift dry ingredients together.
Mix wet ingredients in a jug and whisk into the flour until combined.
Heat oil in a pan and cook pancakes for 30 seconds either side until golden brown.
2 medium eggs
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 large mashed banana
1 tsp baking powder
Light cooking oil for frying
Peel and mash the banana in a large bowl using a potato masher.
In a separate, smaller bowl whisk the eggs with a fork and then slowly add them to the mashed banana.
Lastly add in the baking powder and cinnamon (optional) and mix until just incorporated.
Pour the mixture into a measuring jug and set aside.
Add a very small amount of oil to a frying pan and heat on high for 1 minute.
Pour a small circle of batter into the pan and cook until golden brown on both sides - about half a minute.
Serve warm with syrup, fruit or cream.
