Fairtrade Strawberry and Banana Pancake Cones

Posted by Nathan Lloyd | 04/03/2014 | Category: Fairtrade

Bored of the usual lemon and sugar topping on your pancakes?

This Fairtrade alternative is not only delicious, but it will also give you two of your five a day.  It really is a win win situation!

  • Preparation Time:  Around 15 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 5 minutes
  • Serves:  4


  • 1 Fairtrade banana
  • 100g (3½oz) strawberries ‘look out for British when in season’
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) low fat natural yogurt and the grated rind of 1 orange (Fairtrade of course if in season!) mixed together


Sift the flour in to a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs.

Gradually draw in the flour with a wooden spoon or whisk, adding a little of the milk mixture at a time, beating until you have a smooth batter. Pour into a jug.

Preheat a frying pan with a little oil in it.  Spoon the batter mix into the pan.

Cook for a few minutes until golden, flip overand cook the other side.

Fold to form a cone shape. Fill with slices of strawberries and banana, top with the yogurt and orange, mix and serve.
