Now this is breakfast fit for a King! Treat yourself at the weekend to these mouth-watering pancakes. Top with peanut butter and chopped banana for a delicious way to start your day.



125g self raising flour

1tsp baking powder

1 egg beaten

300ml milk

1 small banana well mashed

2tbsp Meridian Smooth Peanut Butter


Serves: 4



1. Mash together the banana and peanut butter until you have a smooth-ish thick paste. In a large bowl whisk the rest of the pancake ingredients until smooth then add the peanut butter and beat into the batter.

2. Wipe a little oil over a heavy based, non-stick frying pan, skillet or bake stone and heat to a medium temperature.

3. To make each pancake, pour 2 tablespoons of the mixture onto the pan so it forms a small circle. Cook until you see bubbles rising and the top begins to dry then flip over and cook the other side for a further minute.  Cook 3 or 4 at a time depending on the size of the pan.

4. Stack the pancakes on a warm plate in a low oven to keep warm while you’re cooking the rest. Serve with more sliced banana or some seasonal fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup.
