Let’s not beat around the bush, it’s Shrove Tuesday aka pancake day, therefore you must eat pancakes today. If like me you don’t want to rock up to My Old Dutch only to be turned away, then make these.

I serve these with honey and lemon, you can serve these with whatevs.

Blueberry Pancakes

Makes around 8 pancakes

190g all-purpose flour
35g golden caster sugar, or regular caster
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 medium-large egg
350ml whole milk
30g unsalted butter, melted
Squeeze of lemon juice
100g blueberries

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the egg and whisk roughly. Next add the melted butter, milk and lemon juice and whisk roughly again, don’t worry about pockets of flour in your batter. Fold in your blueberries and you’re good to go.

On a medium heat get your frying pan really hot before making your first pancake (ever noticed how your first pancake is usually your worst? I blame it on a frying pan that’s not quite hot enough!).

Lightly oil the pan and use some kitchen paper to distribute it evenly. Pour about half a ladle of batter into the centre of the pan. Once you start seeing little bubbles all over it’s time to flip. Cook on the other side for a little less time, but judge it by eye.

Continue until you’ve used all your batter.

To keep the pancakes warm, place them on a lined baking sheet in a 90°c oven.

      Ohhh what a shame! I love blueberries, but this works well with any berry, really. Raspberry would be my next choice for sure!

  2. Perfect breakfast for me! Those ‘cakses look perfect.
