Banana Lava Pancakes with Peanut Butter

Banana Lava Pancakes with Peanut Butter

Makes 6 pancakes


  1. 6 heaped tsp of smooth peanut butter
    1 large banana
    2 eggs
    120g self-raising flour
    50ml milk (or 50g, if you don’t have a measuring jug)
    2 tbsp icing sugar (plus extra for dusting)


  1. Plate
    Mixing bowl
    Non-stick frying pan


  • Place 6 individual tsp mounds of peanut butter on the plate and place in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

  • Whilst the peanut butter firms up in the freezer, mash the banana in the mixing bowl using a fork then mix in the eggs and icing sugar, followed by the flour and milk. Ensure everything is combined – it will be a little lumpy because of the banana.

  • Place the frying pan over a medium flame and allow it to heat up, then spoon in the first 3 pancakes (2 tbsp batter for each).  

  • Once bubbles start to appear, place one mound of the firmed up peanut butter into the centre of each pancake and cover with another tbsp of batter.

  • Flip the pancakes and leave to cook for about a minute before placing on a plate.

  • Repeat steps 3-5 again for the remaining batter, stack the pancakes on a plate, dust with icing sugar and serve.

Tip: You can omit the peanut butter, or use chocolate spread or Biscoff spread for different flavoured pancakes.
