Mish Delish Good Food Blog

I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

Saturday mornings are pretty predictable in our household. Big mugs of freshly brewed coffee, baby chino’s and pancakes. What a way to start the weekend.

Buttermilk pancakes with caramelised banana
Serves 2 adults and 2 kids
You’ll need:
1 cup of plain flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
small pinch of salt
1 tbs sugar
1 egg
1.5 cups buttermilk
40g unsalted butter, melted
1 banana, sliced diagonally
1 tbs unsalted butter, extra
Maple syrup
  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt & sugar into a bowl.
  2. In a separate jug, measure out the buttermilk and add the egg and whisk gently until combined.
  3. Gently whisk the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture, being careful not to over mix.
  4. Finally, whisk in the melted butter.
  5. Heat a small non stick frypan and brush with a small amount of butter. Ladle 1/2 cup of batter into the pan and swirl into a circle. Cook on a low heat for about 2 mins and turn until golden on the underside.
  6. You can keep the pancakes in a low oven to keep warm, while you cook the banana.
  7. In a separate non stick frypan, melt the extra butter & gently cook the banana in each side until golden. Don’t overcook as they will fall apart.
  8. Serve pancakes, topped with bananas and drizzle with maple syrup.
