We have Maureen Simpson (Cooking at weekends, printed by the ABC in 1992) to thank for this recipe, and also my Mum for introducing me to it. The re-publishing of this recipe on my blog has been literally years in the making: approximately five times a year I ask Mum to send me the recipe again and she never whinges! So you see, dear reader, this post is not just for your benefit, but for mine as well! As long as I continue to pay my domain registration fees, I will never lose this recipe again! The joy! I've tried to procure my own copy of this wonderful cookbook for years, alas I have had no luck in finding it anywhere. Wherever she is now, I do hope Ms. Simpson doesn't mind the republishing of her excellent pancake recipe here!
This recipe is for banana pancakes, but my fussy little eaters at home will have NONE OF THAT NOISE in their pancakes, so we make them plain. I do love them with banana though, so do it for me, would ya?
I love this recipe for its flavour and texture - I'm sure there are others with ricotta or buttermilk that are as good/better but for a recipe made on stock-standard ingredients: this is tops.
