Marcello Tully’s sticky toffee banana pancakes are delicious and the kids will love making and flipping the pancakes.
Place the caster sugar and flour into a bowl, making a well in the centre.
Crack the eggs into the well and start to combine the ingredients together using a whisk or wooden spoon. Add the milk slowly and beat until smooth - ask the kids to beat the mix until really smooth. If their hands get tired, take a break and resume after a couple of minutes.
Heat the oil in a small frying pan, pour a small ladle of pancake batter into the pan. Tilt the pan to coat the whole surface and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Flip the pancake over and cook for a further minute - if you're feeling brave, encourage the kids to flip their own.
Slide onto a plate and repeat the process until all the batter is used up.
Place the pancakes onto a board and gently spread cream cheese over the centre of each. Arrange a few slices of banana over the top – another great task where the kids can get involved.
Fold each pancake in half and then in half again to form a triangle shape. Set aside while you make the sauce – compare who makes the neatest triangle!
For the toffee sauce, add the sugar to a heavy-based saucepan and heat until the sugar melts and turns a golden brown colour. Then, add the cream, butter and vanilla essence and whisk.
Slowly bring to the boil, whilst stirring with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat.
Drizzle a little of the sauce over the pancakes and serve.
