  1. Melt the butter in a non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat. Meanwhile, add the banana, egg, flour and baking powder to a blender and blitz for 20 seconds.

  2. Pour three little puddles straight from the blender into the frying pan. Cook for 1 min or until the tops start to bubble, then flip with a fork or a fish slice and cook for 20-30 seconds more. Repeat with the rest of the mixture to make three more pancakes.

  3. Serve the pancakes with chopped strawberries or banana and a splash of maple syrup, if you like.

I tripled the recipe (but used four bananas because they were only small ones) and made 10 pancakes but they were a bit bigger than the ones in the picture. If I made them again I'd probably add a bit of milk- but I guess it'd be dependent on the ripeness of the bananas. The kids enjoyed them with excessive amounts of biscoff spread and maple syrup.

These were so good. The mixture was just right for pouring - no milk needed - served with blueberries. As it says these were ready in a very short time

Good idea, but recipe must be wrong: I suspect it’s missing milk. I put all the ingredients in the blender but there was no way they were going to mix without more liquid (and my banana was very ripe and my eggs were large). I added milk, but I added it freehand and was a bit heavy handed (I probably added about 100ml). The pancakes tasted nice, sweet with no added sugar, but the mixture was too thin and they were ‘floppy’. I’ll give these another go next time I have an overripe banana, but will add a spoonful of milk at a time until my batter is pourable but thick.
