  1. Put the flour, sugar and baking powder in a mixing bowl, add the mashed banana with the egg, and gradually whisk in the milk with a fork until the mixture resembles a smooth thick batter, stir in the sultanas.
  2. Pour a little oil onto a piece of folded kitchen paper and use it to grease a griddle or heavy nonstick frying pan, heat the pan and the drop heaped dessertspoonful of the mixture, well-spaced apart, onto the pan. Cook for 2 minutes until bubbles appear on the top and the undersides are golden, turn over and cook for 2 minutes more until the second side is done.
  3. Serve warm, topped with butter, honey, golden or maple syrup, and these are best eaten on the day they are made.
