Pancake Day – Blueberry Pancakes Recipe

Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday which means pancakes are on the menu here at Rockliffe Hall!

This year we are going for a healthier favourite, blueberry pancakes! Blueberries are very low in calories but also possess notable health benefits as they are rich in nutrients such as minerals, vitamins, and anti-oxidants.

Ingredients

  • 115g/4oz self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
  • 150ml/¼ pint milk
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil, for frying
  • 200g/7oz blueberries
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp water

Method

  • Place the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
  • Whisk the egg and milk in the flour until you have a smooth batter. Leave to rest for a few minutes.
  • Fold in 85g/3oz of the blueberries.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan, add spoonful’s of the pancake mix and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden.
  • Pile up on a plate and keep warm while you repeat with the rest of the mix.
  • Place the rest of the blueberries (you can add other berries too) into a small saucepan with the sugar and water and cook over a gentle heat for two minutes, or until the blueberries have softened slightly.
  • To serve, pile the pancakes onto a serving plate and pour over the blueberry sauce. Dust with icing sugar (add a splash of cream or ice cream if you are feeling decadent!).
