Combining creamy bananas and eggs for these 3-ingredient pancakes (4 ingredients if you count salt) gives enough sweetness and structure to result in a fluffy flapjack. Freshly grated lemon peel in the berry syrup and the batter give a bright pop of fresh flavour. After a few batches, wipe out the skillet with with a paper towel and regrease with cooking spray to get rid of any burnt bits at the bottom of the pan.
