Servings 12


  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 whole banana nice and ripe and soft
  • 200 ml milk any kind (3/4 cup) (200 ml)
  • 100 gm English Spinach 2 large handfuls
  • 60 gm butter melted cooled to warm
  • 130 gm plain flour 1 cup
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 250 gm plain or honey yoghurt

Honey Lemon Syrup

  • 125 ml honey ½ cup
  • 25 ml lemon Juice ½
  • 30 gm pistachios chopped ( 1/4 cup)
  • 2 whole bananas sliced


  • Put the eggs, milk, banana, spinach and butter into the blender and blend until smooth and there are no spinach bits left .
  • Add the flour, baking powder and salt and blend again till combined and smooth
  • Heat a crepe or fry pan till hot. Add a little oil by wiping some oiled kitchen paper over the pan( I use olive oil spray)
  • Pour in enough mix so that it just covers the base of the pan when swirled around ( approx 1/4 cup). Cook till the pancake starts to set 1- 2 minutes- then flip over and cook for 1/2 a minute. Don't cook till dry and dark brown- just done will do.Tip onto a plate and set aside. You can keep them warm by placing a tea towel over them. Continue till the mix is finished. It will make approximately 12 x 20 cm (9in)
  • To make the honey lemon syrup put the honey and lemon into a pot or into a bowl in the microwave and cook till hot. Let it just come to a boil them pour into a jug or directly onto prepared pancakes when plated.
  • Spread each pancake with a bit over a teaspoon of yoghurt, then fold up. Separate onto serving plates or onto a platter.
  • Once they are all filled with yoghurt and plated drizzle with honey syriup and sprinkle with chopped Pistachios and banana
