B’s Eggless Oven Pancake Topped With Frozen Banana (ice-cream)

Me again ūüôā ¬†Today I thought I’ll blog again – another healthy recipe to keep the vegetarians going! ¬†This oven pancake is eggless and puffs up in the oven – thus there’s no flipping required! ¬†Easy treat with minimal ingredients. ¬†Recently over my eggless home-made scones, a friend and I were having a conversation about eggless baking and she gave me a tip about¬†substituting¬†buttermilk for milk in the recipe and omitting eggs¬†completely. ¬†I had ¬†to give it a go!¬†

I lined a pyrex dish with baking paper.  This allowed me to omit buttering the dish.  You can slightly butter the paper though.

The final result (I love this photo- it’s been edited using Snapseed):

ImageThis is a great low-fat treat. ¬†There is NO SUGAR (except for the chocolate sprinkles on top which is minimal if you ask me). Also – the ice-cream is frozen banana which I blended. ¬†That’s it! ¬†Easy! ¬†B’s food is usually quite easy!¬†

If you haven’t frozen banana before, here are the steps:

  • Peel the banana that is slightly browning
  • Cut it in small pieces
  • Freeze in ziplock
  • Can be frozen till 6 months (I’ve read online, but to be safer I’d say 3 months as I’m not a huge fan of freezing food to begin with)

B’s Eggless Oven Pancake Topped with Frozen Banana (ice-cream)

Bakes: One pancake for 2 people

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk + 1/2 tbsp vinegar (for the buttermilk)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Vanilla essence to taste
  • A bit of butter to butter the tray (can omit this if using baking paper)
  • Frozen Banana
  • Chocolate Sprinkles (optional)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 210 C.
  2. Pour a bit less than 1/2 cup of milk in a measuring cup.  Add 1/2 tbsp of vinegar to it and let it sit for 5 minutes.  This becomes your buttermilk.
  3. Pout milk in a bowl and mix in the flour and salt with a whisk.  Add vanilla essence. 
  4. Don’t overmix as it will lose its¬†fluffiness¬†as a pancake. (Just FYI)
  5. Pour in a pyrex dish lined with baking paper.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes till it’s golden.
  7. Blend the banana pieces with a tiny bit of milk. 
  8. Top the pancake with the ice-cream and serve!

Enjoy a healthy dessert to beat the summer in London!

OPI: Turquoise Bright Nails

The sun is blazing in the midst of London’s summer. ¬†Yes summer. ¬†It’s been so hot the last few days that I feel I’m living in the tropics. ¬†Funny how I complain about the weather either way. ¬†Haha!

The bright weather made me get bright nails done today!

It’s the OPI Turquoise Shatter. ¬†I’m not into shatter-look nails anymore, but since I have the color, I thought why not! ūüėČ

Simply love the brightness of it.

Here’s another shot:

Trying to add spark to my mundane monday which consists of just way too much laundry (entire weekend), chores and grocery shopping to stock the fridge for the upcoming week.
