    METHOD

    1. For the pancakes: In a medium sized bowl sift the flour and baking powder together. Add in the salt and sugar and mix well.

    2. In a separate bowl or jug combine the butter, eggs, water and milk. Whisk well.

    3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients into the well.

    4. Mix with a whisk until completely smooth. Cover with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for an hour.

    5. To cook the pancakes heat a 20 cm non-stick pan over a medium heat and spray with non-stick spray or brush with cooking oil.

    6. Ladle in enough batter to coat the base of the pan.

    7. Cook for approx. 2 minutes on one side then flip over and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat until all the batter has been used.

    8. Set aside for assembly.

    9. For the filling: Cut the banana into rounds about 0,5 cm in thickness and cut each round into quarters.

    10. Place the banana in a heavy bottom saucepan and allow to melt.

    11. Add the brown sugar and stir well.

    12. Add in the banana and simmer over a low heat for 3-5 minutes until the banana starts to caramelize.

    13. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla essence – the banana will break up a bit.

    14. Immediately add in the Kit Kat spread and stir to combine.

    15. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

    16. Place two pancakes on top of each other on serving plate.

    17. Spread 3 tablespoons of the caramelized banana KitKat on top. Place another two pancakes on top. Complete this process until all the pancakes are done.

    18. Spread the remaining 50 g of Kit Kat spread on top of the last pancake and sprinkle the crushed Kit Kat on top.
