Ingredients

  • 200 g Plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp Caster sugar
  • 1 Banana average sized, mashed
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 130 g / 4 ½ oz Fat free Greek style yogurt or plain yogurt
  • 200 mls Semi-skimmed milk
  • 55 g / 2oz Melted butter
  • 100 g Blueberries
  • Light olive oil for frying
  • Extra blueberries to decorate
  • Maple or golden syrup to drizzle

Instructions

  1. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl and then stir in the sugar.
  2. In another bowl whisk together the mashed banana, yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract, then whisk in the milk.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour and whisk in the wet ingredients followed by the melted butter.
  4. Then mix in the blueberries.
  5. Next heat up a small amount of oil to just coat a large non-stick frying pan.
  6. Drop 1 tablespoon of batter into the pan for each pancake, there should be room for 3 at a time.
  7. Fry on a medium heat until bubbles start to form on the surface and then turn over, takes about for 3-4 minutes in total. (I like to keep my pancakes warm on a plate enveloped in foil over a pan of simmering water).
  8. Repeat with the rest of the mixture (makes 14).
  9. Serve in stacks with maple or golden syrup and extra blueberries.
