This weekend, I made brunch for the first time. As ever, I made way too much, but what I made was incredibly good. Plus, it’s quick and easy to make. Brunch will become a more regular theme now in our home!
I love pancakes, our Belgian pancakes, where you can find my recipe here: Recipe: pancakes! But yesterday, I tried the American style pancakes: the big and fluffy ones. It’s so easy to make! This recipe is with blueberries, but you can make them with any type of fruit you want to add! Or nothing and smother them in maple syrup.
The shopping list for around 8 pancakes:
- 200g self raising flour
- 5g baking powder
- 1 egg
- 300ml milk
- a big knob of butter, melted
- 150g blueberries
- some butter for cooking
- additional: maple syrup, honey, powder sugar, …
For making the batter: Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Beat the egg with the milk, make a hole in the middle of the flour mixture and whisk in the milk to make a smooth batter. Beat in the melted butter, and gently stir in about 100g of the blueberries.
Heat a non stick frying pan and let a small knob of butter melt. Ladle in some of the batter, making sure there are some blueberries in there. If your pan is big enough, you can add three or four pancakes per pan. 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 minutes until golden.
Serve immediately with some fresh blueberries, syrup or sugar. Enjoy!
