Makes: 10 Pancakes
Prep: 15 Minutes

200g Self-raising Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 Egg
300ml Milk
Knob of Butter
150g Blueberries
Sunflower Oil or Butter for cooking
Golden or Maple Syrup


  1. Mix together 200g self-raising flour, 1 tsp basking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  2. Beat 1 egg with 300ml milk, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in the milk to make a thick, smooth batter.
  3. Beat in a knob of melted butter and gently stir in 150g of blueberries.
  4. Heat a teaspoon of sunflower oil or small knob of butter into a large non-stick pan.
  5. Drop a large tablespoon of the batter per pancake into the pan to make the pancakes about 7.5cm across. Make three or four pancakes at a time.
  6. 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.
  7. Cover with kitchen paper to keep warm while you use up the rest of the batter.
  8. Serve with golden or maple syrup and a handful of blueberries. For an extra touch sprinkle some icing sugar on top and add a dollop of cream.
