How To Prepare
Get a clean bowl. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in it. Peel and mash the bananas. Break the eggs into a separate bowl. Add other wet ingredients (milk, melted butter and mashed bananas) into the bowl of eggs and mix together.
Stir the dry ingredients mix into the wet ingredients mixture. The resulting batter will be slightly lumpy. Get a clean frying pan and add some oil to it. Place over medium heat and when the oil heats up, scoop some batter into the oil and fry on both sides till golden brown. Scoop the banana pancakes into a paper-lined sieve and serve hot with tea, coffee or soda.
