Blueberry Pancakes – My Family Ties

Sunday Blueberry Pancakes

We have a little tradition on a Sunday morning, that we will all get together and have a family breakfast.  It’s something we all look forward to now and pancakes is way up the list, blueberry pancakes is loved by us all, my youngest daughter Lara just loves to help me make these, her favourite part is waiting for the bubbles and sprinkling on the blueberries. 

American Style Blueberry Pancakes.

350 ml / 12 fl ounces milk

2 eggs

2 teaspoons baking powder

1-2 teaspoons caster sugar

200 g / 7 ounces plain flour

Pinch of salt

300 g / 10.5 ounces Blueberries

A bowl of blueberries ready for the blueberry pancakes.


1. If blending, place in the milk and eggs and blend until combined.  Add in the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a blender, sieve the flour and the baking powder into a bowl, followed by the salt and sugar. Stir the mixture and make a well in the centre. Whisk together the milk and eggs and then gradually add to the dry mixture. Beat well until completely combined and the mixture is smooth. Leave for 15  minutes to rest.

2.  Using a non-stick frying pan, brush a small amount of vegetable oil into the pan, and turn on to a medium high heat. Once hot, ladle in a small amount, about 1/2 a ladle.

3.  Once you see the bubbles start to form it is time to turn over, before you do add a few blueberries.

4.  Keep making the pancakes until you have a stack to present to the table, you can add a sprinkle of icing sugar or some maple syrup to taste.

    We are a pancake loving family too except we opt for the unhealthiest kind – pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. These look great too and will try them for a variation. Fab photos too.
