Makes 8

Preparation time: 10 minutes  Cooking time: 3 minutes per batch

1 cup (150 g) self-raising flour

¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda

¼ cup (55 g) caster sugar

1¼ cups (310 ml) buttermilk

1 egg

Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the centre. Whisk the buttermilk and egg together, and stir gently into the flour mixture.

Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat and spray with oil. Pour ¼ cup of batter into the pan and swirl. Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles form on the surface. Turn and cook a further 1 minute, or until cooked through. Repeat with the remaining mixture.  Serve caramel sauce, sliced bananas and chopped walnuts.
