King Pancakes for Pancake/ Shrove Tuesday


'King pancakes' I called because of their size. Actually it happeded by mere accident as I made the pancakes without any recipe just used what came to my mind. On the other hand, tomorrow is Pancake day and I needed some kind of practice beforehand. But I guess tomorrow I won't make any as after these supersize pancakes I won't have any for at least a month!!! :) Anyway, they are really worth a try!

What we need:

1-2 bananas

4 tbsp flour

0,5 glass of milk

1 egg

a pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of sugar

0,5 tbsp olive oil + some extra olive oil ( or butter) for frying

Vanilla or almond extract

0,5 tea spoon of baking powder

Honey or syrup or jam for serving

What we have to do:

1. Put the flour into a bowl, make a hole in the middle and add salt, sugar, baking powder and egg. Pour half of milk and start mixing. Add oil and mix again. Add the rest of the milk ( but keep the batter pretty thick if you want thick pancakes).

2. Dice banana.

3. Preheat the pan, drizzle a bit of olive oil. And put 2 table spoons of batter. Add banana pieces on the top. Fry until bubbles start to rise and turn the pancake upside down. Repeat the turning if you feel the pancakes are not done yet. Fry for about 5 min.

4. Repeat with all the remaining batter. I made big 4 pancakes and it's perfect for two hungry people!!!

5. Serve with honey and extra bananas! Enjoy!!!

Have fun tomorrow!!!
