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.

Quite simply, this is the only pancake recipe I use except for on Shrove Tuesday. I make them often for various friends. Be sure to use as fresh Baking Powder as possible, the last batch I made, a few hours, I used a brand new pack of Baking Powder and the results were even better. The batter was thick to the point of not pouring but the pancakes were incredibly light textured and held a very impressive thickness.

You absolutely cannot beat this recipe for American pancakes. Time and time again I use this and am always so happy. I have added sugar, blueberries, reeses pieces, chocolate chips, raisins..... etc.... to the batter before flipping over and they have all made such delicious additions. I love this recipe!

Brilliant recipe, all I would add is that they're better with a little pinch of salt in. I make these in a big batch and freeze them invetween greaseproof paper then transfer them in to sandwich bags so quick breakfasts for me and my toddler, just pop a couple in the microwave and they're as good as when freshly made.
