Soft Breakfast Pancakes

Do you remember the mornings when you wake up and realize you don't have any readymade Dosa batter in the fridge nor are you in a mood for any elaborate cooking?  I was in one such mood this morning. How often can I keep feeding Aaron oats for his breakfast ! I wanted him to try something else today. So off  I scampered to the kitchen  in my pajamas and sleepy as hell to see what provisions I have. I needed something healthy and quick so Aaron can have the same thing as me. 2 over ripe Bananas!!! Time to go grocery shopping but its too late for that. I need to feed my little one soon too. Suddenly I think of my mom's quick, easy and yummy pancakes. I quickly mixed up the batter and kept it to rise for 20 minutes while I freshen up my sonny boy. As soon as he is ready, Voila!!! So is his breakfast!!! Thank you Amma for teaching me this super duper easy recipe.

You will need:
Maida - 2 cups
Small Ripe Bananas - 2
Eggs - 2
Baking Powder -  3 tsp
Sugar - 2 Tbsp
Vanilla Essence -  1 tsp
Water - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste

Cream together the bananas and the eggs.
Add rest of the ingredients and make it into a smooth batter.
The batter should not be too thin but of a creamy pourable consistency.
Keep the batter aside to rise slightly for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Heat a flat non stick skillet and spoon the mixture. You don’t have to spread it with a spoon like a dosa.
Once you get small holes on the pancake, flip to cook on the other side for a few seconds and remove from fire.
Serve it warm with a good drizzling of Maple syrup/ Honey / Chocolate sauce / Whipped cream. It is also very tasty with a serving of fresh fruit such as bananas or strawberries too.
Enjoy a hearty quick breakfast.

Tip: Don't add too much sugar as the pancake tends to burn quickly on the underside within few seconds of pouring the batter on the hot pan.
