Preparation Time

Cooking Time

5 minutes


  • 2 medium bananas, mashed
  • ½ cup Irwin Valley Lupin Flour
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons raw caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon natural vanilla essence
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 30g butter, melted
  • whipped thickened cream, to serve


  1. Sift flours, nutmeg and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl.
  2. Stir in sugar. Make a well in the centre.
  3. Add mashed banana, egg and buttermilk. Using a metal spoon, gently fold until just combined.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush with melted butter. Using 1 tablespoon batter per pikelet, cook pikelets, in batches, for 1 to 2 minutes or until small bubbles appear on surface. Turn pikelets over and cook for a further 1 to 2 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  5. Transfer pikelets to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.
  6. Serve pikelets with natural Greek yoghurt.
