Blueberry pancakes

There is nothing better then sleeping in on Sunday morning followed by hearty and warming breakfast. As the temperature drops outside it’s time to drop the avocado and salmon eggs and replace it with something nice and stodgy that will keep you going all day.

I only usually choose to have pancakes when I eat breakfast out As they require a lot of effort. I was never really too keen on faffing around the kitchen to that extent, especially in the morning however this recipe is really worth it. I have made blueberry pancakes many times but they were never worthy a blog post. Usually they come out a bit tough and not fluffy at all. That was until I discovered what vinegar does to pancakes. Yes, you are reading it right vinegar is a key part of this recipe. The reaction between bicarb soda, baking powder and vinegar makes the fluffiest and lightest pancakes you will ever try!!

In this recipe I’m making blueberry pancakes because it’s an American speciality and I actually have seen them in one of the tv series I watch on Netflix. You can ditch the blueberries and swap them cherries or raspberries. Or just have them plain with maple syrup and crispy bacon or sliced banana and honey. Options are endless.

Ingredients:

  • 180ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 120 grams flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • fresh blueberries
  • Coconut oil for frying

Method:

1 Whisk the milk and vinegar together and set aside for couple of minutes.

2 Whisk all the dry ingredients together then add melted butter, egg and milk-vinegar mix then whisk until combined.

3. Heat a teaspoon of coconut oil on a frying pan then pour a table spoon of pancake mix on each side of the pan and make sure you leave a gap in between each pancake so they don’t touch each other.

4. Arrange a few blueberries on top. Cook until you see little bubbles on top and the edges starting to firm up. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the pancakes are cooked through.

5. Serve with some honey or maple syrup.
