Ingredients

For the pancake batter

  • 100g plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 medium free-range eggs, beaten
  • 300-350ml whole milk
  • 50g unsalted butter, melted
  • Vegetable or sunflower oil, for frying

For the fritters

  • 6 tbsp chocolate spread
  • 3 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 medium free-range egg
  • 300ml milk
  • vegetable oil
  • caster sugar

Method

  1. To make the pancake batter, sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, crack in the eggs and slowly whisk in enough milk to make a smooth batter, the consistency of pouring cream. Add the melted butter then set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat about a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. When hot, dip some kitchen paper in the oil and wipe across the surface of the pan. Add a small ladleful of batter and tilt the pan to swirl the batter evenly and thinly. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the pancake is golden underneath.
  3. Loosen all around the pancake with a palette knife. Flip over and cook for a further minute, until golden. Slide out onto a plate and repeat to finish up the batter – oil the pan between each pancake.
  4. Mix the chocolate spread with the crunchy peanut butter. Spread liberally over 3 pancakes, then top each with the sliced banana. Roll up each pancake, then slice into chunky rounds.
  5. For the fritters, mix the self-raising flour with baking powder and caster sugar. Make a well, then add the egg and milk, a little at a time, stirring until you have a smooth batter. Dip each pancake round in the batter until fully coated.
  6. Pour vegetable oil into a deep pan or wok to two-thirds full, then heat to 180°C or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds.
  7. Fry the banana and pancake rounds in batches for about a minute until golden brown, then remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Serve dusted with caster sugar.
