Last week was Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday. We don’t follow the religious background for the day but we did have pancakes for dinner. When I was young my Mom used to make us banana fritters. They are so delicious and as soon as I introduced them to the boys they became an instant favourite. They ask for them all the time and are a great way to use up an aging banana.
We sprinkle a little lemon juice and sugar on them and they are a wonderful quick and easy treat to make!
|I am obviously not the best food photographer but you get the idea. I make fun tiny ones for the boys too.|
1 mashed banana
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
Heat oil in frying pan. Test the heat of the oil with a little water. If the water bounces off you know it’s hot enough.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
Pour batter into pan to make pancakes. Flip pancakes when the edges start to bubble and turn a little golden.
Top with a little lemon juice and sugar and enjoy!
