Blueberry Pancakes (V)

Shrove Tuesday is almost among us and thought I would give you one of my healthier options for the day. Blueberries are such a lovely fruit and if you have any left are perfect in a Greek yoghurt with some honey.

Serves 6-10 Pancakes

200g Self Raising Flour
1 Large Egg
150g Blueberries
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
250ml Whole Milk
Pinch of Salt
Knob of Butter
Maple Syrup/Golden Syrup

1. Add the Self Raising, baking powder and pinch of salt to a mixing bowl and stir. Make a well in the centre of the bowl and whisk the egg with the flour mixture. Then gradually add milk into the bowl, continuously whisking. The mixture should be a thick consistency (If too thin, add more flour and if too thick, add more milk). Then add most of the blueberries (keep some aside to put on the pancakes) and vanilla extract to the bowl and stir.

2. Melt the butter in a frying pan. Take a half ladle full of mixture and pour into the frying pan. It should be a small round shape, you don't want them too thin though. You can do them in batches of 2 or 3 depending on the size of the frying pan. Fry on the first side for about 5 minutes. Then with a spatula flip and fry for another 5 minutes. You can stack them and pour with syrup and add the rest of the blueberries.
