Plate up those Pancakes…

“There is hardship in everything, except eating pancakes.”

– Charles Spurgeon

Light, fluffy and fruity, these pancakes may be an American classic, but we love them too!  I serve mine stacked high, with maple syrup, extra fruit and a few walnuts on the side. They are perfect to eat for breakfast, lunch, a quick snack or for delicious dessert anytime. What’s not to love?

Watch for those bubbles appearing; it’a sign to turn them over! IMG_4036

I always use my favourite; Canadian maple syrup.

Blueberries, raspberries any berry will do… It’s a great way to add some healthy and tasty nutrients.

Method:

  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  2. Beat the egg with the milk, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in the milk to make a thick smooth batter.
  3. Gently stir in half the blueberries.
  4. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a large non-stick frying pan.
  5. Drop a large tablespoonful of the batter per pancake into the pan to make pancakes about 7.5cm across.
  6. Cook for about 3 minutes over a medium heat until small bubbles appear on the surface of each pancake, then turn and cook another 2-3 minutes until golden.
  7. Cover with kitchen paper to keep warm while you use up the rest of the batter.
  8. Serve with maple syrup, scatter on more blueberries and a few walnuts.
  9. For added luxury, why not add a quenelle of fresh cream?

When I fancy some thing a little more savoury, for a mid-morning brunch, I add some crispy bacon or pancetta.
