At my friends Amnesty and Chris’ wedding in Mexico, following a very long series of flights, morning after we arrived at this amazing beachfront secluded villa (thank you Amnesty and Chris!!), Rosie made these fantastic beachfront pancakes, washed down with copious coffee and good jokes meeting all new people. What a way to break your jet-lag after getting up early to watch the stunning sunrise!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 2 Mashed Banana
  • 4 tablespoons oil


Beat wet ingredients then add to dry and mix with a spatula or hand whisk. Do not over whisk, as the pancakes will spread too much in the pan.

Fry in small batches in a medium pan. Use a non-stick pan and do not add oil to the pan for a good browning of the batter. Fry lightly on both sides to taste. Serve with your garnish of choice. Try Syrup, butter or yogurt for a traditional topping.

For a different flavour combination try blackberry coconut and a few leaves of coriander or strawberries and basil with a honey syrup.

You can add nuts or fruit to the batter to taste. Add blueberries, pecan nuts, walnuts or any to taste.
