Method

  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Beat the egg with the milk, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in the milk to make a thick smooth batter. Beat in the melted butter, and gently stir in half the blueberries.
  2. Heat a teaspoon of oil or small knob of butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Drop a large tablespoonful of the batter per pancake into the pan to make pancakes about 7.5cm across. Make three or four pancakes at a time. Cook for about 3 minutes over a medium heat until small bubbles appear on the surface of each pancake, then turn and cook another 2-3 minutes until golden. Cover with kitchen paper to keep warm while you use up the rest of the batter. Serve with golden syrup and the rest of the blueberries.

So easy and perfectly fluffy. Made with banana, cinnamon and creme fraiche

These are the first American pancake recipe that I have tried and they worked out perfectly. Followed the recipe exactly, except for adding more blueberries to the mix as others had suggested, and ended up with 10 thick pancakes (maybe a little too many for two but not going to complain!). Will defiantly make again.

These are delicious every time, we vary the fruit.. Tonight's were frozen cherries, a lovely quick tasty dessert.

Just made these for sunday treat breakfast with bananas in then drizzled with golden syrup. Amazing! So fluffy and thick with a lovely golden colour from the butter in the pan. I made four 10cm pancakes which was more than enough for breakfast with more mix leftover. Will make these again :)

Lovely recipe. This fed our family of four for a brunch. I served the pancakes with streaky bacon which gave it a good mix of sweet and savoury!

My only complaint would be that this is listed as being "easy to half or double" It's impossible to use half of an egg in my book!

To half an egg you beat it with a fork & add half!!!! Derr!

Delicious recipe! I personally would add in lots more blueberries, and the recipe makes way more than 10 about 10cm diameter ones! Brilliant for breakfast and I will definitely make them again.

I love these!! & so do my kids!! I must admit I used to make pancake with soda bread flour and estimate the consistency which worked ok for full pan sized giant ones but since tryin these I haven't looked back!! I substitute with buttermilk too and soak raisins in warm water & brown sugar with a good spoon of cinnamon and sprinkle it onto the mixture just after puttin them on the pan. Yummy!!!

These are so quick and absolutely delicious. I also make some extra ones for daughter who works late, she'll just reheat in the microwave for 30 secs approx. A big hit.

Loved these. Served them whilst on holiday in Florida for breakfast and were a great success. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Best pancakes ever!!!!!! So thick and fluffy, absolutely delicious :-)

The recipe states "beat in the melted butter". I don't see anywhere in the list of ingredients where melted butter is mentioned or the amount?!

Did you work out how much to use etc??

These pancakes were delicious and easy to make! And so good with syrup and extra fresh fruit! I actually made about 25 smaller ones instead of 10, but they were still yummy. A great weekend breakfast treat! Also, can't believe how low cal they are - an added bonus :D

I made these without the blueberries, and added strawberries after cooking for a different breakfast and they were lovely!! We got a little more than 10, but who is complaining! Can't wait to make these for guests and to try the pancakes with different accompaniment :)
Very good low fat version of the American pancake!

Delicious but slightly better once I'd added a bit of caster sugar. Made a lot more than 10 for me! Simple and yummy.
