Rachel Allen’s Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes with Maple Syrup

34m34 minutes ago

Serve the pancakes on a warm plate dusted with icing sugar and drizzled with maple syrup.

Ingredients

  • 100g (3½oz) plain flour
  • 25g (1oz) caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 125ml (4½fl oz) milk
  • 2 tblsp sunflower oil
  • 15g (½oz) butter
  • 125g (4½oz) blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • To Serve:
  • Icing Sugar
  • Maple Syrup

Method

  1. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg yolks with the milk and whisk into the dry ingredients to form a thick batter. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff, then fold into the batter.
  3. Place a frying pan on a medium-high heat.
  4. When the pan has heated up, drizzle over a few drops of sunflower oil and add a knob of butter to the pan, allow to melt, then drop in three or four generous tablespoonfuls of batter at a time, leaving plenty of space in between.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low, then place about seven blueberries onto each pancake. After about 2 minutes, the pancakes should be turning golden underneath and holes should be forming on the top.
  6. At this stage, flip them over and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until golden on both sides.
  7. Serve the pancakes on a warm plate dusted with icing sugar and drizzled with maple syrup.
