Bananas and pancakes

Yield: 3 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 large Or 1-2 small bananas per
Person
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Calvados, grand marnier or
Cointreau
5 fluid ounce Oz orange juice
2 tablespoons Molasses sugar
1 Egg
4 ounces Flour
10 fluid ounce Oz lager beer

Make pancakes with lager, flour and egg, and cook in the normal way (I used a cooking spray to grease a non-stick frying pan). Fold each pancake in half, and then in half again, so it forms a quarter-circle (if you're as bad at cooking pancakes as I am, they'll come out in bits anyway - if so, pretend it didn't happen!), and place them in a large flan dish.

Peel bananas, cut in half long-ways and in half again cross-ways, and place face-down on top of the pancakes. Put the remaining ingredients into a frying pan or small saucepan, and boil for 3-4 minutes, until just beginning to be syrupy. Pour over bananas and pancakes, and bake in a moderate oven (Mark 4 - 350 F) for 20-30 minutes.

I served this with fromage frais (cream substitute) and a chocolate sauce, for which the recipe follows:
