Banana Pancakes with Apple and Rhubarb Syrup

I did wake up a bit early this morning, wasn't the best weather for cooking, but it was humid and warm and I couldn't sleep well.

So I end up making pancakes for the family for brekky.  I have some very ripe bananas, lots of apples and got some rhubarb stalks on sales the day before.

If I'm making sweet brekky for the family, I'd like to make sure they have some fruits.

Spiced Apple & Rhubarb Syrup

3 stalks of rhubarb, cut into chunks
2 royal gala apples, pealed and wedged (can be red delicious, pink lady etc)
2/3 cup of raw sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbsp golden syrup
enough water to cover half of the fruits

The method is pretty simple.  Coat the fruits well with the cinnamon, sugar and syrup, add water and bring it to boil.  Simmer for a couple of minutes until the rhubarb is soft.

Banana Pancakes

2 large eggs
1 ripe banana
50g butter
4 tbsp white sugar
1.5 cup milk (approx)
200g self raising flour
Bit of olive oil for the pan

Beat eggs with sugar until it turns pale.  Beat in softened butter.
In another bowl mash the banana, add room temperature milk.
Add the mixtures together and mix well.
Sift in flour, and add a bit more milk if needed the consistency should be just coating the back of a wooden spoon.

Serve pancakes with softened apple and rhubarb and syrup, and dollop of whipped cream (with a bit of icing sugar).

Happy family!
