This is a simple recipe that uses pancake mix and a frying pan. There's no need to use any butter or even preheat the oven. You can make this recipe with just a spoon.

Pancake mix
150 g
Vegetable oil
3 tablespoons
80 ml
4 tablespoons
Honey (optional)

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a short cut for creating cake that I came up with myself. It takes hardly any time at all on a gas hob and the spoon and cake tin is all that you will have to wash at the end! You don't have to buy too many things either, you just need ingredients that can be found in your cupboard and a banana. This is a great-tasting recipe that I made so easy that even an elementary school kid could make it, or people pressed for time could make quickly.
