Shower your kids with love and hugs with a yummy heart-shaped banana pancake!
You will need:
1 cup plain flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable/corn oil
1 large egg
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 large strawberries, sliced horizontally
1 slice low fat cheese, cut into 2 heart shapes
1 tablespoon honey
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl. Set aside.
Whisk milk, oil and egg together in a medium sized bowl. Add mashed banana and flour to mixture until just moistened. Do not over mix.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan, grease it with some oil using kitchen paper towel that is moistened with oil.
To make one pancake, ladle one scoop of batter (50ml) onto pan. Use the back of the spoon to spread batter into a round shape.
Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until surface of pancakes has some bubbles. Flip over carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until both sides are browned. Remove from pan and set aside. Continue making pancakes with the remaining batter.
When pancakes are cool, use the heart-shaped cutter to cut out the “hearts” from the pancakes. Assemble them into “owl heads” using strawberry and sliced cheese. Serve with honey.
