Indulge in a delicious twist on a classic breakfast favourite with these fluffy pancakes topped with caramelised fried bananas, a dollop of whipped cream and berries. Enjoy the perfect balance of sweet and savoury with every bite of these delectable pancakes.

Ingredients for Pancakes:

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups milk
  • 75ml water
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil + extra for cooking the pancakes
  • A pinch of salt

  • 30g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Handful of mixed berries
  • Whipped cream

  • Create a well in the middle of the flour mixture. Crack the egg, add the milk, oil and the water. Whisk till the batter is smooth and lump free. 
  • Let the batter rest for 30 minutes (this allows the flour to absorb all the liquids and also gives a lighter and fluffier pancake).
  • Place your preferred pan on the stove top.
  • Dampen a piece of paper towel in the oil and rub the oil onto the pan.
  • the pan on medium to high heat and heat the oil. Once the pan is heated, add enough batter to cover the base of the pan.
  • When the edges of the pancake start to caramelise, flip the pancake over and cook until the pancake is lightly browned.
  • Carefully take the pancake out of the pan and place on a plate.
  • Sprinkle over the Funky Ouma cinnamon sugar.
  • Repeat the process until all the batter is finished.
  • Add the Banhoek Chilli Oil and butter to the pan and leave to melt. Then add the Funky Ouma cinnamon sugar and vanilla essence. Stir with a spoon to combine.
  • When the mixture starts to bubble, add the banana and stir carefully to cover the banana with the mixture and leave the bananas to caramelise. Ensure you do not let the bananas burn.
  • Roll up your pancakes and place them on a plate. Then place the bananas, whipped cream and mixed berries on top of the pancakes and serve! 🥞✨
