Weekend Treats: Blueberry & Lemon Pancakes

April 3, 2016
Fluffy American Pancakes - The Project Lifestyle

On the weekends you deserve an extra special treat for breakfast, swapping the mundane cereal and porridge for something sweet and exciting that you can whip up from scratch in 10-15 minutes.

This weekend I decided to make up some American pancakes, light and fluffy in texture and topped with creme fraiche and a handful of blueberries. Of course, you can change up the toppings for something else if you prefer, but here’s my basic American pancake recipe which makes around 6 pancakes.


150g Plain flour
1 tsp Baking powder
4tsp Caster sugar
150ml Semi-skimmed milk
1 Medium egg
1tbsp Butter (for cooking)

Toppings (optional)
100g Blueberries
75ml Creme fraiche
Half a lemon – to squeeze over the pancakes


  1. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the baking powder and sugar.
  2. Measure out the milk in a measuring jug and beat in the egg.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients, whisking to combine them into a thick paste.
  4. Place a little bit of butter into a heated non-stick frying pan and when it melts, add 1.5tbsp of the pancake batter into the pan and spread out into a circular shape using a spatula.
  5. When the top of the pancake begins to bubble, use a spatula to flip the pancake ensuring they have risen and reached a golden brown colour on each side before serving.
  6. Serve with creme fraiche, blueberries and a squeeze of lemon (or toppings of your choice)
