Banana Pancakes with Golden Syrup

We needed a big breakfast this morning to start the renovations on our new place. But something pretty quick as we had an early start.

Some Facts About MACADAMIA:
  • The macadamia nut is the only plant food native to Australia that is produced and exported in any significant quantity.
  • They have the highest amount of beneficial monosaturated fats of any nut.
  • Macadamia nuts are often used by law enforcement to simulate crack cocaine in drug stings. When chopped, the nuts resemble crack cocaine in color.

EASE: 3/5. A little more complicated for a pancake recipe - involves beating eggwhites.
Prep time: 15mins. To slice bananas, get ingredients, prepare dry mixture, wet mixture and beat eggwhites.
Cooking time: 10mins. To cook 5 pancakes. Recipe makes 5 normal size pancakes.
TOTAL: 25mins. It should really be 45mins as you are supposed to rest the batter for 30mins.

TASTE: 4/5.
I enjoyed these, Ryan did not like the macadamias on the top. I found that in some of the pancakes the batter surrounding the banana slices didn't cook. The pancakes were fluffier than the ones I normally make.

Would I make again: Yes/No.
I would make the banana pancakes but not the macadamia topping.
