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.

Love this recipe, makes excellent small chunky but light and fluffy pancakes as opposed to the usual thin ones. Taste good without blueberries and you can put other fruit/berries on top when cooked.

Lovely easy little pancakes to make, which maybe next time I'd sweeten with some icing sugar over the top before serving. I'll definately be making them again.

Fantastic recipe for weekend Pancakes. We had them plain served with bacon and Syrup. Delicious. I felt like Nigella!

These are excellent - I too made them with gluten-free self raising flour and honestly I wouldn't be able to tell the difference - they were gorgeous! Definitely one for those to try if you're gluten/wheat intolerant - better than the stuff you get in the shops pre-packed :)

The taste and texture of these is amazing!!! They're really light and not at all stodgy. Don’t use too much oil though. I used about 3-4 squirts of spray oil which works really well.

Very tasty and very easy to make. I put all of the blueberries in the batter because I find blueberries taste better when they are cooked. The pancakes themselves are not very sweet and I think you do need maple syrup with them. They are also delicious with both maple syrup and crispy streaky bacon (honestly!).

When they say per serving for these pancakes, is that 1 pancake or 2 pancakes?

Absolutely lovely. Have made a few times for family/friends and always gone down well. Blueberries are a must. We also add in banana, bacon etc.

Made it on Pancake Day for 3 people and they turned out beautifully! My brother was a little iffy over the blueberries for a second or two but he got over it and wolfed these down. I had enough batter left over for another session of pancakes the next day so it's also great for a quick breakfast before work. Nice, thanks!

One word: Phenomenal! Have attempted and failed to make decent pancakes for years but this recipe was unbelievably good. Didn't bother with the blueberries of knob of butter. Can't wait to make again!

These were very good - after using half of the blueberries for the pancake mix, my son made a compote with the rest and we served it with the pancakes and maple syrup - yum!
