The weekend is just around the corner! Hooray! And what better way to start a Saturday morning that with blueberry pancakes.

It’s been a long time since I had a full 5-day week at work. Between the bank holiday weekends and some long weekends I took, I have been spoiled and I will miss my half weeks… But for now I want to share a recipe for my favourite meal of the day, breakfast (unless you are a breakfast for dinner kind of person which I applaud).
Pancakes are a dear choice for breakfast, but the mess they make in the kitchen is quite discouraging. I am avoiding them but they keep popping up in our dinning table quite often in many variations. I made these blueberry pancakes a couple of weeks ago and they were an absolute hit. Imagine a fluffy, airy pancake, juicy blueberries popping in your mouth and a refreshing raw blueberry jam to top it all off. Now tell me this is not heaven…
Your Shopping List
For the pancakes
125g plain flour
60ml full fat milk
50g melted butter
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp powdered sugar
a handful of blueberries lightly crushed with a fork
grounded hazelnuts (optional/ to taste)
For the raw blueberry jam
1 heaped tbsp tightly packed brown sugar
zest of a lime
Mix eggs, milk, butter and flour to a creamy dough. Add the sugar and baking powder and keep mixing for another 30 sec. Finally add the blueberries and ground hazelnuts.
Add all the ingredients for the jam in a blender and mix for about 2-3 minutes.
Heat a pan and melt a small portion of butter to cover the bottom. Now I like my pancakes chunky so I use a big ladle, but you can use a smaller one if you fancy. Once the butter is melted and the pan is really hot pour a portion of the batter. You will see the batter rising slightly, leave it for a 3 minutes and flip carefully.
Serve while they are still warm, with a dollop of (vanilla) yoghurt, the jam and some fresh blueberries!
Now this is the only way to start your weekend!
