Alvin's Banana Pancakes

Alvin is my nephew. He turns one in just a little over a week - time flies! He's a big boy who loves to run and play. My brother, his fiance and Alvin had lunch with us a few days ago, and I made these little banana pancakes for Alvin. He seemed to like them - and they're very suitable for small children. If making them for adults, I'd add a touch of salt, and perhaps a bit of sugar, too. Depending on how ripe your banana is, of course. You can make these ahead and freeze them, and eat warm or cold. Very adaptable!

Alvin's Banana Pancakes

-1 banana
-1 egg
-1/2 dl flour (that's 50 ml, or 3 tbsp + 1 tsp)

Mash the banana, and beat with the egg and the flour to a smooth batter. Fry on medium heat in a little bit of butter.

And a kid *must* have dessert, too. Right?
