Banoffee Pie Pancakes

Banoffee Pie Pancakes

Sometimes you just need breakfast to be special. These pancakes are perfect for those moments. I call them my Banoffee Pie Pancakes because of the classic mix of flavours.

They are perfect for using up a few old bananas and for a lower calorie option you can always ditch the syrup and sprinkle them with a little cinnamon instead. While they are best served straight from the pan – and frankly if you can get a whole batch to the table without ‘testing’ at least one you are a better person than me – I do make these ahead and warm them. Just keep them in the fridge and warm in a pan or microwave for less than one minute

My kids love a pancake breakfast but the usual shop-bought variety are so often laden with sugar and not very filling. The addition of ricotta to these makes them far more filling and the banana is at least a nod towards a healthy start. They are also naturally sweet enough thanks to the banana to eat plain.

This makes enough for four hungry adults (or eight kids!) and costs around £2 without additional toppings, so 50p an adult portion for a very indulgent and filling breakfast or brunch.
