One Cup Blueberry Pancakes

It was Bank Holiday Monday yesterday which meant a lie in and a plate full of these light and fluffy blueberry pancakes before tackling the unpleasant task of re-organising the shed.

I promise you these are the easiest pancakes to make, not a pair of scales in sight. All you need is a cup or mug and you're all set. You can even make the batter the night before so all you have to is add the blueberries right at the last minute.

The self-raising flour makes these pancakes thicker than the traditional European crepe and more like the American style ones.  They're light and fluffy and packed full of juicy blueberries and are most definitely worth getting up for.

Ingredients for 1 Cup Blueberry Pancakes (serves 4).

1 cup of self-raising flour,
1 cup of semi-skimmed milk,
1 large egg,
150g blueberries,
Vegetable or olive oil,
Syrup to serve.

1. Add the flour, milk and egg to a bowl and whisk until you have a smooth batter.

2. Gently fold in the blueberries.

3. Put a large frying pan over a medium heat and add 1/2 tablespoon of oil. Carefully tilt the pan to spread oil out to a thin even layer.

4.  Add separate ladles of the batter to the pan. Make sure to leave enough space between each one so they have room to spread. You'll need to cook them in batches.

5. Cook the pancakes for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden or little bubbles appear on the surface.

6. Serve straight away stacked high and topped with syrup and extra blueberries.

I topped mine with some leftover berries and agave syrup but they'd also be great with some plain yoghurt and honey and could even be served with some crispy bacon if you dare. The prefect bank holiday treat.
