Big Kids Banana Pancakes With Brandy Cream Recipe

Pancake Tuesday is one week from today, so why not get trying our big kids Banana Pancakes with Brandy Cream recipe in the meantime!

Pancake 4What You Need
200g plain flour
2 eggs
100ml milk
1½ tbsp water
100g butter
4 bananas
3-4 tbsp brandy
100ml cream
Serves 4

How We Do It
Sieve the flour into a bowl. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and water together. Make a well in the centre of the flour, then slowly stir the egg mixture into the flour. Cover and keep in the fridge overnight.Heat a non-stick pan. Add a small cube of butter and allow to melt. Ladle in enough pancake mixture to make a circle that holds its shape. Turn as it cooks. Place each cooked pancake in a stack on a warmed plate.

Meanwhile, peel the bananas and cut in half lengthways. Melt butter in a frying pan and cook the bananas until slightly golden. Remove the bananas, carefully pour the brandy into the pan to deglaze and add the cream. Slowly reduce by half. Place 2 pieces of banana on top of each serving. Drizzle with the brandy cream and enjoy!

WARNING: Brandy is highly flammable. Be very careful when you’re deglazing the pan. Reduce the flame first.

A Wine That Works
Lustau ‘East India’ has a lovely, creamy, caramelised nose; a sweet palate, with hints of dates and a
touch of bitter chocolate. This blend of the palomino and pedro ximénez grapes gives a full, complex
and long finish. A real treat that works well with the sweetened banana and the heady brandy.
Also Try
A ten-year-old Tawny port such as Warre’s ‘Otima’.
