banana pikelets

Delicious, filling, kid friendly and moderately nutritious.  Ollie, who's not normally a fan of pancakes (I know!) snaffled these up and asked for more.  I modified this recipe.  Next time I think I'm going to try substituting the plain flour with wholemeal and adding some golden syrup in place of some of the sugar.

2 cups plain flour (250g)
2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp butter (40g)
1 1/2 cups milk (350ml)
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup caster sugar (75g)
2 mashed, sweet, ripe bananas

Melt butter.
Sift the flour and baking powder (or use 2 cups self raising flour and I prefer to give it a good stir with a whisk).
Whisk together the melted butter, eggs, milk and sugar and add to the flour mixture, beating out any lumps.
Stir in the well mashed bananas.
Drop tablespoons of the mixture into a moderately hot non-stick frying pan, turning when bubbles appear on the surface of the pikelet.
Eat hot out of the pan or warm or cold, with butter and jam and cream. Or just as they are.
