There's nothing like pancakes to start off the day. Though my mother was big on breakfast when we were young and would wake up at unearthly hours to prepare breakfast for us (our schools start at 7.20 in the morning!), after I got married and moved to my own place, we hardly ate breakfast. It was mostly brunch at the best, or we would skip straight to a scrumptious and heavy lunch.
This particular time, we had some bananas that were starting to spot. I decided to make some banana pancakes and was too lazy to whisk it manually. I decided to blitz in the blender and it came out perfect!
Blender Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce
4 medium size very ripe bananas
140g plain flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon unrefined sugar
3 tablespoon soy milk powder (if you are using soymilk, you can omit these - I didn't have any)
2 tablespoon canola oil
For Chocolate Sauce
70g non dairy chocolate
50ml water/soy milk (I just used water)
1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
1) For pancakes, dump all ingredients into the blender and blitz until smooth.
2) In a non-stick pan, grease it with some margarine (optional - I didn't). Pour spoonfuls of batter to make desired sizes. I put about 2 -3 tablespoons a pancake.
3) Cook over medium heat until bubbles start to appear. Gently insert spatula to release the pancake from the pan and flip.
4) Cook for another 2 minutes or so until its golden brown on both sides
5) For chocolate sauce, heat the water/soymilk in a pan. When it is simmering hot, remove from heat and stir in the chocolate. Stir until it melts. Add maple syrup.
6) Pour choc sauce on pancakes and dig in.
