These easy Banana Pikelets make a great breakfast or lunch box snack. Both regular and Thermomix instructions included.
Servings: 20 pikelets
- 1 & ⅓ cups self raising flour 200 grams
- 2 tbsp caster sugar optional
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 200 grams bananas approximately 3 medium sized bananas
- 1 & ⅓ cups milk 200 grams
- Butter to grease the frying pan
Place the bananas in a bowl and mash with a fork. Set aside until needed
Sift the self raising flour into a large bowl. Add the caster sugar and stir through to create a well in the centre.
In a large jug, add the eggs, milk and vanilla essence and stir to combine. Add the combined liquids along with the mashed banana to the sifted flour mixture and stir with a large metal spoon to combine.
Add a little butter to a non stick frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Use a large spoon to scoop up the pikelet mixture and pour into the heated frying pan. Repeat until you have four pikelets in your frying pan.
Cook each pikelet for approximately one minute, or until they begin to bubble on the surface. Carefully flip each pikelet over with an egg flip and cook for a further minute. Transfer the pikelets to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
Repeat the above step until you have used all of the mixture.
Serve pikelets immediately with your favourite topping.
Cut your bananas into thirds.
Place the self raising flour, caster sugar, vanilla essence, milk, eggs and bananas into your Thermomix bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 5
Preheat your frying pan with a little bit of butter over a medium high heat and add tablespoon amounts of the banana pikelet mixture.
When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, carefully flip them over and cook for a further 30 seconds on the other side before transferring to a Thermoserver or plate covered with foil to keep warm.
Continue until you have used all of the mixture.

It's best to use brown/soft bananas for this recipe as this helps to give them sweetness.
