Whether you say a cluster of bananas or a bunch of bananas I'm not sure neither I have the time to debate. But what I can say is that bananas are equally as good as the imported fruits you pay a lot more. Banana is packed with nutrients and did you know that it does wonders as a fruit pack. Why not try?? Mash a ripe banana, apply on the clean face, leave for around 5 minutes, wash and see the glow. I do that every now and then especially when the fruit cannot be saved at all and beyond sending it to heaven. Otherwise, there's always some sort of dessert you can make. Remember the "Malaysian bananas fritters"??
And now this banana pancake which does not need the lavishing expensive maple syrup. Instead so much cheaper and luscious with palm sugar syrup and fresh grated coconut. Well, as the name says, its the Malaysian touch and the touch must come from "Malaysian Boleh/Can" ingredients. The recipe simple as Nava and of course simply irresistible to start your day, as a sweet note after a meal or what about tea time??
3 ripe bananas - mashed
1 banana - sliced and keep aside
1 cup self-raising flour (or all purpose flour with a pinch of baking soda or baking powder)
Milk (any type) - as needed
Butter - as needed
To pair with
Palm sugar - simmer some palm sugar with water for the thick syrup
Grated fresh coconut - as you like
Add flour and egg into mashed bananas. Gently whisk/stir.
Then pour milk bit by bit, keep whisking for the consistency of a batter to make pancake.

Do the same to the rest of the batter.
