Banana Pikelets Recipe

Banana Pikelets Recipe

The first couple of weeks back at school are both a busy and fun time for  kids and their parents – particularly if your little ones are starting school or kindy for the first time.  After a full day of learning and playing, your kids are sure to come home with hungry little tummies.  These Banana Pikelets are an yummy and easy afternoon snack for the kids (and adults too!) and are also a great activity to allow you to spend some time with the kids talking about their day.

This recipe makes approximately 16 pikelets, giving you plenty of leftovers to enjoy after dinner or even reheat them the next morning for a special breakfast.

You will need:

1 1/3 cups of self raising flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 cup of caster sugar

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence

2 eggs – lightly whisked

250g of banana – approximately 3 large bananas, the browner the better!

1 1/3 cups of milk

Butter to grease your frying pan.

Let’s put it together!

Place the bananas in a bowl and mash with a fork. Set aside until needed
Sift the self raising flour and baking powder together in a large bowl.  Add the caster sugar and stir through to create a well in the centre.

In a large jug, add the eggs, milk and vanilla essence and stir to combine.  Add the combined liquids along with the mashed banana to the sifted flour mixture and stir with a large metal spoon to combine.

Add a little butter to a non stick frying pan and heat over a medium heat.  Use a large spoon to scoop up the pikelet mixture and pour into the heated frying pan.  Repeat until you have four pikelets in your frying pan.

Cook each pikelet for approximately one minute, or until they begin to bubble on the surface.  Carefully flip each pikelet  over with an egg flip and cook for a further minute.  Transfer the pikelets to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
