Recipe: Blueberry Pancakes

By Ninegrandstudent

I didn’t even know I liked blueberries until recently. Not for any particular reason other than they are SO expensive. Who has £2 to spend on a teeny tub?! Not me! But when I spied those lovely yellow stickers reducing them to 30p, I threw a few packets in my basket. Turns out that I really like them, and they freeze really well. A winner in my book, and I’ll definitely be hoping for more in the reduced aisle!

Plus it’s PANCAKE DAY next week! I wouldn’t be a good blogger if I didn’t provide you with a good recipe (though see my indulgent nutella version, or my boyfriend’s traditional crepes). This one is the perfect mix between healthy and naughty. It’s not quite as good for you as these…I’m still experimenting with banana pancakes. But they are significantly better for you than my nutella ones! And they don’t require any topping, though I added some sneaky honey.

The best part of all? This amount makes two servings, but they reheat with a blast in the microwave really, really well. This makes Monday Morning pancakes a reality…

Ingredients

  • 1 handful of blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of creme fraiche (I used fat-free)
  • A splash of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of flour (possibly slightly more or less)
  • 1 flat teaspoon baking powder
  • A small amount of butter, for frying (or use an oil spray, I keep meaning to pick one up!)

I like my blueberries a bit squished, so I microwaved them just to warm through, then mashed a few with my fork. That’s entirely optional!

Put the egg in a bowl or jug, add the creme fraiche and milk, and whisk to combine.

Add the flour gradually, stopping when you have a thick batter.

Add the baking powder and give it a final whisk to combine before stirring the blueberries through.

Fry in a little melted butter until the top is bubbling, then flip and continue to cook the other side. Both sides should be golden and slightly crispy. Keep warm in an oven until all are cooked.

To serve, pile onto a plate. If keeping for the next day, cool quickly. Reheat by microwaving in a single layer until hot – about 1 minute.
