This pancake recipe is my go to for super thick and fluffy pancakes every time. There are a few different options in terms of which flour you choose to use. All will vary a little in terms of the end result, my favourites being those made with cassava flour or buckwheat for a little bit more a nutty flavour!
The combination of banana and chocolate chip is obviously a classic, but you can of course add in some berries if you prefer, double up on the banana and add some chunks along with some roasted walnuts, or keep them plain and load them up with toppings.
I was gifted the hand blender by Kenwood Ireland which comes with an extra attachment for blitzing up your potatoes or any veggie mash you might like to make. I also love the fact that it comes with a jug that you can whip your pancake batter in without it splattering all over the kitchen… I will never learn my lesson with this one!
A game changer with this hand blender, and to be honest it’s a bit of a deal breaker when it comes to me choosing a hand blender, is that the attachment is just that, an attachment.
I genuinely use my hand blender way more often than my high speed blender or food processor. It’s just so handy for blitzing up a quick sauce, pureeing soup or even whizzing up some bread crumbs.
But back to pancakes… if you do give this super simple recipe a go be sure to post a pick over on Instagram and let me know!
