You're not going to make pancakes every day so when you do you (especially on Shrove Tuesday) you need to go all out. This is the recipe that says 'forget calorie counting' and guarantees you a big hit of joy. This isn't healthy, it isn't good for you in any way apart from maybe the bananas but it will leave you wondering why you'd never thought of putting Ferreo Rocher in with your pancakes before now. Give this a go, absolutely gorgeous...
Good thing about pancakes is that you'll probably have about half of the ingredients in the fridge already.
Peel the bananas and slice them up into nice thin slices.
Lash the bananas, a good handful of pecans and a little dash of sugar into a large pot. All you are doing here is heating them up.
Make the pancake mix by lashing the eggs into a bowl with a good fistful of sugar. You don't need to be super precise with these measurements.
Throw in a good amount of flour. The thing with pancakes is to just whisk it together until it feels right. Too thin? Add in more flour. Too thick? Just lash in a little more milk. Simple.
Get a whisk out and make sure to give it a good old bash around. Nothing worse than lumpy pancakes.
Add the milk in slowly until it is all smooth.
What you are looking for here is a consistency where it just falls off the spoon but is still kinda thick.
At this stage the pecans and bananas will be getting nice and golden brown.
Grab the Ferrero Rocher out of their wrappers. Not rocket science that bit.
Cut them in half. You can eat one. I did as you can see by the 5 in the image!
Heat up a large pan. Non stick would be best. A small bit of oil or even a little butter if you are being more luxurious.
When the pan heats up lash in a big ladle full of the pancake mix.
When the mix starts to bubble up they are ready to flip. Shouldn't take more than 30 seconds on each side if the pan is at the right heat.
Don't bother with the flipping. That will just end in disaster. Simple little spatula will do the job.
Whip them out of the pan and dry them off on a little paper towel.
Fold them into little quarters.
Add a bit of the topping on them. Should be lovely and sweet and crispy.
Pile the topping as high as you can; you only get to do this once a year after all.
Place the chocolate around the outside and get ready for a taste sensation.
So off you go; leg it down to the local Carrefour or Zoom, get these ingredients in and prepare to have your mind blown!
