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.

I made 9 pancakes and there was a bit of mix left over for maybe a couple more but we'd had enough between two of us! Nice and light and fluffy. Lovely with maple syrup 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.

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!
