Blueberry Blender Pancakes

Seeing as it’s Pancake Day next week, I thought I’d try out some new pancake recipes. Usually we tend to have the usual toppings; Nutella, sugar, lemon, maybe some banana, but this year I wanted to try something different.

Scouring Pinterest I stumbled across these Blueberry Blender Pancakes by Jamie Oliver.

OK, so mine don’t look quite as pretty as Mr Oliver’s but they definitely taste pretty damn good! What I like about them most is that you can have them for breakfast as well as dessert. And they are super easy to make.

They go perfectly with a dollop of natural yoghurt, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. You can also add some crushed nuts on top, I used walnuts but you can use whatever nuts you prefer.

A few thing’s to mention; my batter wasn’t as purple as Jamie Oliver’s (unsure why) and next time, I’d probably use less batter for each pancake so they are a little thinner and reach further.

The recipe makes 4 servings, about 2,3 pancakes a person.

Ingredients:

  • 180 g blueberries
  • 1 large banana
  • 180 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 220 g wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Olive oil, to coat the pan

To garnish (optional)
Honey
Plain yogurt
Pinch of ground cinnamon
Handful of chopped walnuts or pecans

Method:

  1. In a blender, add the banana, milk, egg, flour, baking powder, salt and half of the blueberries. Blitz until you have a smooth pancake batter.
  2. Pour the mix into a bowl and fold in the remaining berries.
  3. Place a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and add a little olive oil. Use some kitchen towel to wipe it around the pan and absorb the excess.
  4. When the pan is hot, scoop spoonfuls of your batter into the pan to make small or large pancakes. Cook for a couple of minutes on each side, or until they look crisp and golden.
  5. To serve, add a dollop of natural yogurt, a dusting of cinnamon and some crushed walnuts.
