American Style Pancakes - pancakes & blueberries

Makes 10 pancakes

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 5 minutes


  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 1 tablespoon of Baking Powder
  • 300ml Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2tsp Sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 10g Unsalted Melted & Cooled Butter


  1. Add all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl starting with the flour, baking powder, sugar and then salt.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, add the eggs and mix.
  3. Slowly incorporate the milk and mix before adding the melted butter.
  4. Mix all the ingredient together until you have a smooth thick batter.
  5. Pour the batter mix into a jug and use the jug to pour out your pancake mix into a hot pan of melted butter.
  6. Cook for 1 – 2 minutes until bubbles appear in the pancake, flip and cook for a further 1 – 2 minutes.
  7. Serve straight out of the pan and douse with some creme fraiche and your favourite fruit or go traditional with some tasty maple syrup. Fancy a more savoury version? Just add bacon!

Tip: Substitute sugar for banana if you want a healthier, but equally tasty version of this receipe. If you dont want to make as many, halve the ingredients to make 5 pancakes. Voila!
