Over at Facebook, a recipe was floating around on a flourless banana pancake. You know how I am a sucker for pancakes. Since I have 3 bananas left, I decided to try this recipe.
The recipe calls for 1 banana to 2 eggs. As they didn't indicate the size of the banana, I decided to weigh mine for more accuracy.
After adding 2 eggs to 265g banana (3 med sized bananas), I already had a bad hunch that I should stopped but my curiosity got the better of me and I went ahead and added in the 3rd egg. Right away I knew I should have trusted my own instinct.
The batter turned out way too watery. I wasn't successful turning it into a pancake. It ended up more like scrambled egg and the texture is really rough. In order not to waste the remaining batter, I added in another 2 tbsp of plain flour.
Okay, pancake formed but I didn't like the final product. It lacks the bite texture and it tasted soggy. Cooking this needed a heavily oiled pan as the sugar from the banana caramelised very quickly and sticks to my non stick pan. It also burn the pancake before it has a chance to be fully cooked as you can see from the picture. Thus you needed a lower flame to cook this.
I don’t know whether because this works only on barely ripe banana and not a ripe banana though.
Also I mashed mine really well and thus I am not sure whether it is supposedly to be just combined.
Will I say this is a healthy recipe? With the butter needed to oil the pan, to me, this is definitely not.
Will I try this again? er… let’s say I will not waste my banana on this recipe.
For those who are now experimental mode, I am leaving the following recipe for you to try as someone did it and was successful.
Maybe you can share with me your success and let's see where I went wrong.
