  • 50g Plain Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 150ml Milk
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 tbsp Muscovado Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Almonds
  • Vanilla Ice Cream



  1. Whip up a classic pancake batter by adding flour, egg and milk into a jug, and whisk until smooth

  2. Roughly chop the almonds and put into a hot, non-stick frying pan to toast for a couple of minutes. Move them about occasionally to ensure they are evenly toasted, then place into a bowl when done

  3. Slice the banana and add into the non-stick frying pan. Add the sugar and lightly caramelise them until the banana begins to cook on the outside - keep stirring so the sugar melts but does not burn. Once lightly caramelised, put into a bowl

  4. Clean the frying pan, then add a teaspoon of butter. Wait until melted, then cook your pancakes

  5. Once cooked, place a spoonful of caramelised banana, a dollop of vanilla ice cream, and a sprinkling of almonds to create the perfect banoffee inspired pancakes!
