  2. Over the top of the banana crack your egg and mix together
  3. Add the cocoa powder and mix
  4. Put your non-stick pan on the hob (optional – add a tiny bit of oil  to prevent sticking and wipe over the cool pan with a kitchen towel)
  5. Turn up the heat and make sure it gets really hot, then using a ladle or large spoon pour into the pan and leave to brown before flipping

Top tips:

  • Always use the same ratio of egg to banana for the right consistency
  • Make sure you have a non-stick pan when cooking pancakes as the egg can easily stick. We used a ceramic pan in this video.
  • Make sure your pan is really hot before adding the mixture otherwise the egg will run or scramble rather than set
  • If you want to you can add a teeny bit of oil on a kitchen towel and run around the pan to prevent sticking before you cook
  • Top your pancake with fruit, chocolate sauce or some naughty ice cream!
