Teddy is still at the weaning stage and he’s most definitely loving it! And, despite being a little apprehensive because of my lack of cooking skills, I think I’m finally loving it too!
Once we moved on from pureed single tastes and then lumpier combined flavours we tried these baby banana pancakes! It was one of the first things I cooked for Teddy (unless steaming broccoli counts as cooking?) and he loves them! And because they’re soooo easy I love them too!!
One small banana
Crack the egg into a bowl and lightly beat with a fork. Mash the banana with the same fork then add to the egg and mix together.
Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan and pour on enough mixture to make a small pancake. We used a single egg frying pan! Cook on a medium heat for a few minutes until the underside is golden brown and the pancake is sturdy enough to flip!
I found there was a fine line between cooked or burnt on the bottom and runny or sturdy enough to flip on the top so do keep a close eye on them!
Once the second side is cooked, and I found it cooked a lot quicker than the first side, slide them out on to some dry kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil and allow to cool a little before serving.
Now Teddy’s a little more confident with finger food we cut these into little pieces he can hold but we’ve also chopped them into bite sized pieces and even roughly mashed them, and he loved them all!
We enjoyed ours with a scoop of set yoghurt on top but you could try creme fruit, fresh berries or even Philadelphia cheese!
Let me know if you love them too!
