MINI BLUEBERRY PANCAKES
"MAKES 10 pancakes
PREP 5 minutes
COOK 15–20 minutes
200g wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 medium egg, beaten
250ml skimmed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g fresh blueberries
2 tsp sunflower oil
Mix the flour and baking powder in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat together the egg, milk and vanilla extract.
Make a well in the middle of the flour, then gradually stir in the egg and milk mixture until you get a smooth batter. Ideally, leave the batter to stand for a few minutes before cooking.
Lightly crush half the blueberries with a fork and mix these into the batter, along with the remaining (whole) blueberries.
Add a little oil to a non-stick pan, then add the batter to the pan, 1 tbsp at a time, to create small pancakes, making sure the blueberries are evenly distributed.
Cook the pancakes on a medium heat for 2–3 minutes, then turn and cook for a further 2 minutes. The pancakes are ready to turn when you see bubbles appearing on the surface. Sprinkle with a little sugar before serving, if using. Serve with some low-fat yogurt or low-fat crème fraiche, if liked.
You should be able to cook 3–4 pancakes at a time, depending on pan size, but it’s a good idea to just cook one pancake first to check the pan isn’t too hot or too cool.Keep the first batch of pancakes warm by placing on a plate over a pan of gently simmering water.Freezing instructions: Defrost for 2 hours, or defrost/warm in the microwave or a moderate oven".
