Pancake Day Recipe: Blueberry Hot Cakes

28th February 2014

Share This Article:

Blueberries are a superfood, so these Pancake Day treats are in fact good for your health.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

You'll need:

175 g (6 oz) self-raising flour

Half teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

2 eggs

150 g (5 oz) natural yogurt

150 ml (1/4 pint) milk

100 g (4 oz) blueberries

Grated rind of half an orange

Little oil for greasing

Butter and maple syrup to serve, plus extra blueberries

What to do:

1)    Put the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a large mixing bowl then add the eggs and yogurt. Slowly whisk in the milk little by little, whisking all the time until the mixture is smooth and frothy. Stir in the blueberries and orange rind. 

2)    Pour a little oil into a large non-stick frying pan, then wipe around the pan with a folded piece of kitchen towel. Heat up the pan then carefully drop large spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, well spaced apart and cook until tiny bubbles begin to show on the top and the undersides are golden around the edges.

3)    Turn the pancakes over with a non-stick egg slice or palette knife and cook the second side until golden. Take these hot cakes out of the pan and keep hot in a folded teacloth while you cook the rest of the mixture in the same way, greasing the pan with the kitchen towel between batches.

4)    Serve three or four per portion, stacked up on plates topped with a knob of butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and some extra blueberries.
