These are great for breakfast, or you could serve them later in the day cooked on the barbecue. The combined flavour of bananas and dates, pecans and maple syrup is awesome. Serve them with cream or some great-quality vanilla ice cream.

Hotcakes, or griddle cakes, are a classic American speciality, similar to big, thick pikelets. They are most often eaten for breakfast, served with maple syrup or bacon, and are generally cooked on a large skillet or in a griddle pan. This makes them perfect for the barbecue hotplate.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 large egg
280ml milk
1/2 cup chopped dates
butter, for greasing
3 bananas, sliced
ice cream, to serve
maple syrup, to drizzle

Method

  1. To make the hotcakes, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and half the chopped nuts. Add the egg and slowly pour in the milk until a thick batter is achieved that will drop but not be too runny. Mix in the dates and allow to rest.
  2. Prepare your barbecue for cooking on a medium heat. Melt a little butter on the barbecue hotplate or in a nonstick pan. Half-fill crumpet rings with batter to get nice round shapes with depth. When bubbles and little holes appear on top of the hotcakes, turn them over to finish cooking.
  3. To serve, remove the crumpet rings and top the hotcakes with sliced banana and a scoop of ice cream. Drizzle with maple syrup and scatter with the remaining nuts.
