Pancakes on the road

As we planned this bike trip, one of my main concerns was how we were going to last a few months without our usual weekly ritual of pancakes.

Luckily, we have found an easy recipe that allows us to make pancakes on the go. Mix one mug of flour (all quantities are approximate), with half a spoonful of baking powder and two spoonfuls of sugar. Add one mashed banana, a small amount of oil and a mug of water. Scoop a couple heaping spoonfuls of this batter into your mini-travel-frying-pan and sprinkle in any extra fillings (e.g. walnuts or blueberries). Flip. Serve immediately with jam, other spreads and fresh fruit (unfortunately, we are not carrying maple syrup with us).

The batter can also be modified for dinner: omit banana and sugar; add some salt or soy sauce and stir-fried veggies like carrots, cabbage and peppers.

The only inconvenience is that flour is only sold in 1kg bags, enough for at least four batches. But this just means we have to eat pancakes several times in a short period…
