Plantain Pancakes


  1. 1 plantain

  2. 1/4 cup of flour

  3. 1 tea spoon vanilla extract

  4. 2 eggs

  5. pinch of salt

  6. water to loosen the plantain – see cooking method.


  1. In a blender, blend the plantain to a light smoothie consistency. Gradually add water till you reach this consistency

  2. Pour the blended plantain in a bowl, mix in the 2 eggs (I used a hand mixer – quicker and less washing)

  3. Add the vanilla extract, salt and baking powder. The baking powder for fluffiness.

  4. Add the flour – so the trick is to add flour gradually to get the consistency of you choice. I went for a thick smoothie consistency – the light the pancake butter the quicker it cooks.

  5. Add honey and mix till combined.

  6. Pour the mix in a warm non-stick pan using a ladle or spoon depending on your preferred size of the pancake – set cooker plate to a medium heat. If it is on high, it will be too hot and the cake will burn quickly.

  7. Let the pancake cook until the edges start to lift before turning – this should take 1-3 minutes depending on the thickness of the butter.

  8. Serve hot and drizzle honey for sweetening. Honey is a healthier option, but you can equally use golden syrup if it’s your preference.
