Banoffee Pancakes - Easy Dessert Recipe

Light fluffy pancakes filled with caramel sauce, bananas, whipped cream and topped with flaked chocolate can only be a good thing. Since they can be eaten cold and still look and taste every bit as good later on the same day, why not make them before dinner cover the plate in cling film for a no fuss delicious dessert.

Banoffee Pancakes

Having been sent a couple of OXO Good Grips products and set a challenge of coming up with a pancake recipe here's how it went. Okay, I'm a bit early as Pancake Day isn't until 4th March but yesterday I was in a pancake making mood. In any case it doesn't have to officially be Pancake Day to enjoy pancakes!

Tried and Tested:
First up the OXO Good Grips Batter Dispenser, now it has to be said at first I wondered why a simple jug wouldn't do the job just as well, after all you have to use a jug to pour your batter in to fill it in the first place.

But no, seriously this batter dispenser is actually a marvelous idea. Since the batter can be made and then stored nicely sealed in the fridge without taking up the room that a jug would. Plus what about using it for filling cake cases with cake mixture without the mess of trying to spoon it in the cases and getting it everywhere (well I do anyway).

It holds up to 700ml of batter and the 'no-drip' valve really does it's job as there wasn't a drip to be seen. The batter dispenser is dishwasher safe.

Now for the Omelet Turner, which is actually perfect for pancakes and quesadillas as the edge is so thin. The OXO Good Grips Flip and Fold Omelet Turner actually did make the pancakes really easy to turn over. It's very flexible and is made of silicone which is heat resistant to 315C or 600F and is dishwasher safe.

Banoffee Pancakes

Light fluffy pancakes filled with caramel sauce, bananas, whipped cream and topped with flaked chocolate can only be a good thing.

ingredients:

a lightweight frying pan - about 8 or 10 inches in size
110g plain flour
a pinch of salt
2 eggs
200ml milk mixed with 75ml water
a good knob of melted butter to be used for greasing the pan

For the filling:
Slice banana into a bowl and mix with a little lemon juice to stop them going brown.  

Spread the cooked pancakes with Nestlé Caramel Carnation Milk and add sliced banana and whipped cream.  Sprinkle with flaked chocolate and that's it - job done. 

instructions

Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it. Then whisk in the eggs with a balloon whisk.

Bring in the flour from around the edge of the bowl so it all gets well mixed together. Now you can gradually add small quantities of the milk and water mixture, whisking all the time until all the milk and water has been added and it is quite smooth - no lumps please!

You will now have a quite thinnish batter.

When that's done, I always transfer the mixture into a jug so it's easier to pour - or you can use the OXO Good Grips Batter Dispenser of course.

Using a piece of kitchen paper dip it into your melted butter and use this to grease the frying pan. Get the pan really hot and then turn the heat to medium. Pour a little of the pancake batter into the hot pan - enough to almost cover the bottom completely.  Don't make the pancakes too thick.

Anyway, as the batter goes into the hot pan, tip it around from side to side to get the base evenly coated with batter.

The pancake will only take a minute - if that to cook. Now flip the pancake over with a pan slice and the other side will need a few seconds to cook.

Once cooked the pancake will have nice golden spots on. Now slide the pancake onto a serving plate.
