The Minimalistic Way of: Pancakes

It is time for Wannabe Walden to write about a less critical topic. And how about a “recipe” for the most delicious, yet super simple pancakes?

I have learned this “recipe” from a friend of mine from my rowing club. And I have made them every single day since the first time I got them.

I use them as breakfast, dessert or just a snack.

I freaking love them!

The Ingredients

As rule of thumb, this is the amounts you are going to need for a single person. I just had triple that amount myself, but that was because I was hungry, and I have a hard brazilian jiu jitsu session later today.

For 1 person:

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon of sugar (optional, I crave sugar)

This portion will make you 3-5 small pancakes.

Price

The price of the ingredients are the following:

1 x banana = 2 DKK (0,3 $)

1 x egg = 3 DKK (0,5 $)

1 x tablespoon of sugar = 0,25 DKK (0,05 $)

A portion will cost you = 5,25 DKK (0,85 $)

Mix It

  1. Put a pan on the stove, turn on medium heat and put some tasteless oil on (I use rapeseed oil) or butter.
  2. Take all of the ingredients and mix it in bowl, and mash the whole thing with a fork.

*LIFEHACK* Crack the egg on a flat surface (your kitchen table) instead of the edge of the bowl. You are more unlikely to have egg shells in the mix by doing so.

It is not super important that you get every single banana chunk mashed out. It is okay if it is a bit chunky.

Fry Those Sons of B*tches

Go for medium heat, and give them 2-3 minutes on each side.

They can be pretty hard to turn over if they are to big. What I do is to make three small pancakes at a time.

Like this:

Topping

At the moment I top them off with peanut butter and jelly. My little sister is super allergic to peanuts, so I never had peanut butter as a kid. This has resulted in me having a small addiction to it. But I also like to top them off with nutella or something similar.

Enjoy

Having a boat load of these along with a good cup of black coffee is the best!

  1. Branching out are we?! Reaching for the stars! A food blog? ?

    Little protip: Add a dash of oatmeal (not oats – oatmeal), and you’ve got yourself an awesome whole-some meal there. You only need 1 egg, if you add the oatmeal (will save you some money I guess).
    (We make them for our kid).

    1. Haha! Thought it would be fun to write about something different..

      I see! That is a good tip. I’m sure your kid loves them! (I would if I were a kid)
