1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup quick-cooking creamy honey oats
1 tablespoon caster sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
60g margarine, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 small bananas, mashed
Cold margarine, for cooking
Sliced Banana, to serve

  1. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in oats and sugar and make a well in the centre.

  8. Using a thin egg flip, turn and cook for a further 2 mins.
  9. Place 2 hotcakes on a plate, top with sliced fruit and yoghurt.
  10. Serve and enjoy.
