banana honey pikelets

½ teaspoon baking powder
1 banana, mashed
2 tablespoons honey, plus extra, to serve
¾ cup (180ml) milk

Place the flour and baking powder in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Place the banana, honey, milk and egg in a separate bowl and whisk to combine. Gradually add the banana mixture to the flour and mix until smooth. Heat a lightly greased non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add tablespoonfuls of the batter to the pan and cook, in batches, for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook for a further 1−2 minutes or until light golden. Serve with the yoghurt, extra honey and raspberries. Makes 20.

Tip: Place cooked pikelets in zip lock bags and freeze for up to 2 months. Spread with your favourite chocolate, nut or fruit spread.
