Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs

Method

  1. Mash the banana in a small mixing bowl.
  2. Add the eggs to the banana and whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan and spray with oil.
  4. Pour about 1/4 of the batter into the pan and cook over a very low heat for 2 minutes.
  5. Very carefully, turn the pancake over (the lack of flour means they will break up quite easily if you are heavy handed).  Cook for a further minute.

  7. Serve with the raspberries or strawberries.
