Blueberry pancakes

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

3 eggs

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

150g blueberries

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!
