    Macadamia banana pancakes recipe

    Soft, fluffy pancakes with a nutty twist – the best reason to get out of bed on a lazy Sunday


    2 cups self raising flour

    2 eggs

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    2 1/4 cup buttermilk

    60 g sugar

    1/3 cup toasted unsalted macadamias, finely chopped

    1/2 cup mashed ripe banana

    Unsalted butter for cooking

    1/4 cup extra macadamias, roughly chopped to serve

    maple syrup to serve

    Macadamia Butter

    100 g unsalted butter, whipped until fluffy

    1/4 cup toasted unsalted macadamia nuts, finely chopped


    1. Mix all the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl beat the eggs and add oil. Add one cup buttermilk to the egg mixture and mix well. Pour egg mixture into the dry ingredients mix and mix into a thick batter, add the remaining buttermilk mix, banana and macadamias and incorporate gently. Add more buttermilk if the batter is too thick.

    2. Pour 1/4 cup batter (or more for larger pancakes) into a medium sized oiled pan. Turn when bubbles appear on the top of the pancake and cook until golden. Keep warm in oven and repeat process with remaining batter.

    3. To make butter, fold macadamia nuts through whipped butter until well combined.
