Best Blueberry Pancakes

In our household we adore pancakes for Sunday breakfast and well, we also adore blueberries, so this is one of our favourite indulgent recipes. Serve however you like; we usually stack them with layers of natural yoghurt and maple syrup. Equally good as a dessert with rich vanilla ice cream!!

To Serve

  • Maple Syrup
  • Natural Yoghurt
  • Lemon Wedges

Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl; add the sugar and salt and stir to combine.

Separate the eggs.

Add the sour cream or crème fraiche, milk and cooled butter to the egg yolks in a separate bowl. Beat until combined and add to the flour mixture.

Mix the egg and flour mixture into a smooth batter.

Wisk the egg whites to soft peaks and fold gently through the batter, followed by the blueberries, be careful not to overwork the mixture.

Cook large spoonfuls of batter in a buttered pan on low heat, turning when bubbles begin to appear on the surface, 1-2 minutes. When golden on both sides remove from heat and keep warm in a low oven while cooking the remainder.

Serve pancakes layered with thick natural yoghurt, drizzled with maple syrup and wedges of lemon on the side.

    For your recipes that include eggs can I substitute flax seed oil? We are vegan.

    Hi Heather, so happy to hear you are enjoying Veggie num num!! For some recipes substituting in flax seed oil will probably work quite well however, this recipe unfortunately would not be very successful without the eggs. I have been working on a good vegan pancake recipe and it still needs some tweaking. For most of the newer recipes on Veggie num num I have either not used eggs or have suggested an egg alternative. Hope this is helpful :)
