Happy Pancake Day!

04 March 2014

What better way to celebrate Shrove Tuesday than with a giant stack of sweet sticky pancakes?! We chose fluffy American style blueberry pancakes to get us in the mood... calorie counters need not apply!
Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes with Fruit Compote
1 medium egg
300ml milk
200g self-raising flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Knob of butter

Oil to grease pan


Maple or Golden Syrup (depending on preference)
Mixed pack of berries (Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries or Raspberries)
1 Tbsp. sugar
Dusting of icing sugar (optional)


  1. Mix the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Whisk the egg and milk together separately in another bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the egg/milk mixture into the middle. Whisk together until it forms a smooth batter. Beat in the melted knob of butter and gently stir in the blueberries.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a non-stick pan. Ladle a large tbsp. of batter into the pan. After 2-3 minutes you will notice small bubbles appearing and the batter becoming smoother on top, that means its time to flip the pancake! Wait another 2-3 minutes till the pancake is a golden brown.
  3. Throw the remaining chopped fruit/berries into a saucepan with a generous helping of sugar (around 1 tbsp.) and a dollop of any fruit jam you may have in the fridge for extra sweetness. Let this gently simmer for 3-5 minutes or until the fruit has softened.
  4. Serve the pancakes with a generous squeeze of maple/golden syrup and spoonfuls of fruit compote. Dust with icing sugar for the final wow.
  5. Enjoy.
