I am writing this from the depths of Glastonbury in Somerset, steeped in Arthurian legend, crystals, witches, organic everything and me and my 6 kids staying in my besties cottage. Today we took the kids to Glastonbury Abbey, mythical burial place of Queen Guinevere and King Arthur. It was a beautiful and idyllic afternoon, the sun slanting down amongst the romantic ruins of a once spectacular building, punctuated by the shrieks of the children, ‘You’re a poo’, ‘No, you’re a poo wee wee’.
All poo comments aside, Glastonbury is a great place to visit. The countryside is lovely and there is so much to see. One morning while we were staying with my friend and we had the mammoth task of feeding 8 children and 3 adults my daughter had the brainwave of making pancakes. So I thought I would share this easy recipe that I put together one morning. It’s great for using up that pesky brown banana because it’s gives the pancakes a lovely natural sweetness so the kids aren’t whining for extra sugar etc. I like to sprinkle berries on mine.
- I cup of flour
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 1 over ripe banana
- Coconut oil
- Fresh berries
Put the flour, milk, egg and banana in a bowl and whisk until you have a nice smooth batter. Heat a teaspoon of coconut oil on a frying pan and put in enough batter for one pancake. Cook in both sides until golden and beautiful. Serve sprinkled with berries. This will make about 3 pancakes.
Such a great recipe. Full of natural sweetness and uses up food that might otherwise be binned. Give it a go and let me know how you get on. MC x
