As you may or may not already know pancake day is coming up on Tuesday and I've been experimenting with my new Jamie Oliver pancake pan from Tefal this past week whipping up some yummy pancakes.
I made some american blueberry pancakes as I used to buy the blueberry ones from Tesco and my local store seems to have stopped doing them so I have been lusting over some for the past few months. I have made pancakes when I was much younger but they were just your basic ones which took not much effort at all so I was excited to try these out and they turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.
Here is the recipe if you're interested.
1 1/2 cups of Self raising flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 Cup of Milk
2 tablespoons of Sugar
1. Mix the wet ingredients and then mix in the dry and beat these both together until the batter is smooth, I then added about 5 tablespoons of sugar but you can add less if you prefer and also pour in the blueberries and stir again.
2. Let the mixture stand for 20 minutes.
3. Heat your frying pan and put a 2 spoonfuls of butter in it to melt and then pour the butter into the batter and stir in.
4. Now pour a couple of tablespoons of batter into the pan, make these as big or small as you like. I kept mine reasonably small. When the pancake has plenty of bubbles on top, flip it over with a spatula and cook until golden - usually about 50 seconds.
5. Stack these up on a plate and drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
