When food is tasting a bit sour, brighten up the taste buds by giving them a sweet treat. The ripeness of the bananas will affect the sweetness, with very ripe bananas being sweeter than less ripe bananas.

To add an extra layer of decadence to this recipe, cook slices of banana and pop them on top of the pancakes along with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup and some chopped walnuts.
The walnuts will add extra texture and help with interest in food when you have loss of taste. Adding ice-cream on top will also help the mouth find interest in the pancakes from combining different temperatures.
Top with cream, créme fraîche or yoghurt if you have dry mouth & throat.
1½ cups plain flour
2½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup milk
- 2 large eggs
¼ cup smooth ricotta
Add all the dry ingredients to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine well.
Add all the wet ingredients to another medium bowl. Stir to combine.
Pour the bowl of wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Leave the mixture to sit for a couple of minutes.
Heat a large non-stick fry pan over a medium heat and pour in about ¼ of a cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until you see bubbles on the surface of the pancake. Gently flip the pancake and cook another 1-2 minutes.
Top with any toppings of your choice.
