This one is a classic and like anything else classic it’s great when you get it right but truly awful when you mess it up. So let us guide you on how not to mess this up. Not only are blueberry pancakes 100% delicious but they’re also a fantastic way to pretend that you’re being healthy because they contain fruit. In actual fact you’re being as indulgent as ever but nobody needs to know. Ok… So it isn’t completely guilt free but at least it’s another great way to enjoy pancakes.
As always, everybody has their own way but we think ours is the best:
So here’s what you’re going to need –
- 135ml milk.
- 135g plain flour.
- 1/2 tablespoon of salt.
- 2 tablespoons of caster sugar.
- 1 large egg.
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter (and some more for cooking later).
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder.
- 100g frozen blueberries (very important).
What to do next –
Step 1) Sift the flour, caster sugar, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
Step 2) Beat the egg lightly in a separate jug/bowl.
Step 3) Add the milk and butter to the egg and then whisk them together.
Step 4) Combine the two mixtures and beat with a fork until the batter is smooth.
Step 5) Fold in the blueberries and do one last check for lumpy mix (apart from the blueberries obviously).
Step 6) Leave your mixture to air for about an hour. Don’t stir the mix any more than you already have.
Step 7) Heat a pan to medium-high heat and add some butter. Just enough to cover the surface of the pan if you *swoosh* it around.
Step 8) Cook until brown on either side, flipping if you’re feeling brave and serve them up hot.
We got so excited writing this that we might have to go and make some right now. We hope you enjoy our take on yet another pancake classic. We recommend keeping some blueberries aside to put on top when you’re done. Or if you are feeling really indulgent then you can pour some cream over the top as well. It is a cake after all right? Be sure to stay tuned for more because you know there’s plenty where that came from.
