The very first time I went to Bali I had banana pancakes, cooked fresh as you waited at the breakfast buffet, literally every day. I wanted to try something else...(and I did manage to choke down fruit, croissants, bacon, omelettes to name a few options) but I came back to these each morning as they were so good.
It has taken me all these years to get my version up here on the site, but I have made them multiple times and the kids always loved them! So as we are all staycationing right now, put these on your menu and start flipping! Then cue the hot coffee, or Brew Choc, fresh juice, and pretend just for a minute that you are by the pool with a breeze gently wafting as you plan your weekend ahead!
