  • Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture and beat together with your hand mixer until just combined., do not overmix, it should be a little lumpy.
    pancakes preparation
  • Melt the butter in your frying pay and ensuring the base of the pan is completely covered.
  • Turn down the heat to medium and, using a large spoon, drop a spoonful of batter into the pan and place about 7 blueberries into the pancake.
  • Cook until the base is golden brown - this will only take about 30 seconds, then flip over and cook on the other side.
  • Remove and set aside on a warmed plate.
  • Wipe the pan over and add fresh butter before you add further pancake batter.
  • Repeat the above steps until you have 8 pancakes.
  • Stack 4 pancakes up on each other in a tower and spoon over the blueberry sauce.

Supporting Notes

If possible refrigerate for at least 15 minutes, this ensures that the flour has time to hydrate and allows the baking powder to settle.
