1 banana, mashed
1 cup self-raising flour (can be g.f)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar (or less if you want)
3/4 cup milk (any sort will work)
a couple of drops of vanilla extract
1. Mix everything into a bowl. Lumps are ok. At this point you can leave it to start activating the raising agents so it gets bubbly and produces a lighter result – about half an hour or so, or if you don’t think ahead, like me, just use it straight away.
2. Melt a little butter in a pan over medium-low heat. Drop a tablespoonfull (for baby sized pikelets) in the pan without touching. For bigger sizes, use two tablespoons and spread it out a bit.
3. After two minutes or so, bubbles should appear and begin to burst, and the sides of the pikelet should be fairly sturdy. The underside should be starting to brown. Flip carefully, as the top will still be quite gooey and you can quite possibly fling it everywhere, and cook the other side for a minute or so, until underside is golden.
The only problem I had was making them fast enough! Enjoy!
