Banana pancakes with Jack Johnson


Pancake day is back and I give you the fluffiest pancake recipe, tried and tested on the Aga. 
Try them with anything but I served these with a very yummy banana and toffee sauce… Recipe to follow! Diner beckons …
Thick creamy pancakes with banana sauce
Ingredients list:
Plain flour 175g
Baking powder 1 tsp
Caster sugar 25g
eggs 2 large
Plain natural yogurt 200ml ( Not the skinny version, please!)
sunflower oil 2 Tbsp
Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar.
Make  a well in the flour.
Beat the eggs in omelette together and pour into your well.
Add the yogurt.
Beat well to form a smooth batter.
Leave to rest and heat a little oil in a pan. 
Drop a big dollop of batter and watch in rise and ooze a little!
Serve with a banana sauce and whole split bananas then put on Jack Johnson’s moody song “Banana pancakes”: “Pretend like is’s the week end now/ We can pretend it all the time…”
 I love it ….

Health smoothie
This is my very best winter pick-me-up recipe because sometimes I want full on nutrition with taste and this is packed with folic acid, potassium, magnesium and fibre:
1 large banana
3 squeezed oranges
300 ml or 1 big glass of buttermilk (use Kefir or even yogurt if you like)
1 spoon full of wheat-germ
Put it all in a blender with a few ice-cubes and serve chilled.
