Makin' banana pancakes...

... pretend like it's the weekend noooow. (everyone needs a bit of Jack Johnson in their life)

So I woke up with a super craving for pancakes this morning, flicked through Vegan a go-go and found a great little recipe. All simple ingredients:
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 banana
1 1/4 cups Soy milk
(So easy I remembered them by heart!)

1. Sieve flour and baking powder in a medium size bowl (I am always too lazy to sieve, but you should to avoid lumps)
2. Mash the banana with a fork and mix in 1/4 cup of milk.
3. Put the banana mix into the flour mix and add sugar and the rest of the milk.
4. Whisk it up (don't worry if its not incredibly smooth, it's just the banana)
5. Lightly oil a frying pan
     -Use a tasteless oil, sunflower or vegetable, I used olive oil which I couldn't taste but a food critic probably could!
       -Also best to apply it to the pan using a pastry brush or kitchen roll.
6. Ladle in about 3/4 cup and tilt the pan till the base is covered.
7. Turn over (or flip!) when the pancake starts to brown on the underside.
8. Serve with whatever you see fit.
- This morning I stuck with lemon juice and sugar but fresh fruit would be a good shout, or peanut butter or even chocolate fudge spread (It's meant to be fudge but last time I made it it was just a little too squishy.)

This recipe makes five pancakes which I greedily gobbled so obviously just multiply the ingredients to achieve your desired quantity.
I've just googled Shrove Tuesday and it's this Tuesday! What wonderful timing - Enjoy.
