For Christmas, my lovely wife bought me a pancake maker. Now, a couple of years ago she bought me a waffle maker – which I then used to make her lots of waffles. So I feel she may have had the same plan with this gift.
Anyway, as much as I love crepes (which I have also made on this), I also love American Style Pancakes, specifically blueberry ones. So I figured I’d give them a go. I’m pleased with how they worked out,
- 135g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 130ml milk
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 2 tbsp cooled, melted butter
- 150g pack of blueberries
- Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
- Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes. Either stir in the blueberries at this point, or add to the pancake before flipping.
- Turn on the pancake maker (or heat a pan) – ladle out enough batter to make the size of pancake you want, around 10cm diameter is good. Once bubbles appear on the top then flip it over. Cook the other side for a minute or so.
- Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out the pan.
- Serve with maple syrup and extra blueberries.
