5 top tips for making flippin’ fantastic banana pancakes

Choose ripe bananas

Opt for ripe bananas with brown speckles for the best natural sweetness and flavour in your pancakes.

Mash, don’t blend

When adding your bananas to the batter, mash them rather than blending to help them maintain their satisfying texture.

Watch the heat

Moderate heat is the sweet spot. Too high, and your pancakes may burn; too low, and they won’t cook through evenly.

Go easy on the batter

Don’t overmix the pancake batter as it can make your pancakes less fluffy. A few lumps in the batter are fine.

Patience is a virtue

Let your pancake batter rest for a few minutes before cooking to achieve that perfect fluffiness.

Don’t forget the golden syrup!

Enhance your banana pancakes with a drizzle of Lyle’s Golden Syrup, adding a rich, caramel-like sweetness that perfectly complements the natural banana flavour. It’s a match made in pancake heaven – trust us!
