  1. In a bowl or round jug; mash banana, add eggs and lightly beat.
  2. Add in this order: vanilla essence, sugar, coconut, flour and baking powder.
  3. Add milk in alternately to mix – little bit of milk, mix, etc, may need extra milk for the right consistency (like a thick but runny sauce)
  4. Beat for a good minute or so, over beating doesn’t seem to matter. Just make sure there is no visible flour
  5. In a cast iron or heavy bottom frying pan, lightly oil with either extra light olive oil or spray.
  6. Pour and spread with the back of a spoon to get the right shape and to spread evenly (the pikelet will rise)
  7. When little air pockets burst on top, get ready to flip!
  8. Serve with runny honey, nut butters, cream and jam, lemon and sugar or golden syrup.
