In the battle of SweetVSsavoury, or BananaVSBuckwheat, why not try your hand at making our delicious sweet pancakes?

  1. Follow the instructions on the McDougalls pancake mix to make your batter, or create your own – tap here for our perfect pancake recipe. Whisk the batter until really smooth and transfer to a large jug. Set aside for 20-30 minutes if you have time or you can use right away.
  2.  To make the caramelised bananas heat the golden syrup,vanilla and water in a saucepan over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes until becomes syrupy.
  3. Add the banana slices to the pan and swirl until coated in the syrup.
  4. Add the butter to the pan and cook for further 2 minutes. Place saucepan of caramelised banana to one side until ready to use. (Give it a quick heat in the pan just before serving.)
  5. Lightly grease a medium frying pan using oiled kitchen paper, then place over a medium heat.
  6. Place half a ladle of batter into the pan and swirl around until the batter covers the bottom of the pan.
  7. After 1 minute or so the pancake should be ready to turn. Using a fish slice gently ease the pancake from around the sides of the pan before turning it over – or if you’re feeling confident give it a flip! Cook for 1 minute on the opposite side or until the pancake becomes golden brown.
  8. Transfer on to a plate and add a tablespoon of Nutella evenly spreading it across the whole pancake.
  9. Fold pancake into quarters and top with the caramelised banana, a sprinkle of chocolate chip chunks and finish with a dusting of icing sugar.

Chef’s Tip

If you have time, set the batter aside for 20-30 minutes – This should give you a better pancake texture.
