Blueberry pancakes

One of the things I look forward to on the weekend is brunch. Today we had blueberry pancakes with bacon. Dylan loves them too, here he is enjoying some for a snack!

The recipe I use is from a book called 365 Recipes for Babies, Toddlers & Children by Bridget Wardley and Judy More. This is quite a good book, with lots of nice recipes for kiddies meals, but I don't use it all that much as I think it's better to try to get our little man to eat what we're having for tea (unless a very hot curry etc!). I don't want to make him any fussier about food!

Here's the recipe:

1 egg
200g natural yoghurt (I used greek)
70ml milk
1 Tbsp oil
130g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarb. soda
about 1/2 cup frozen (or fresh if in season) blueberries

In a bowl mix together the first 4 ingredients. Measure the flour and add the bicarb, mix well with a fork before adding to the mixture. If required add a little more milk to thin the batter. Add the blueberries.

Fry in a little oil until golden brown and cooked through. I made a double batch this morning as D loves them, and have frozen the leftover pancakes to eat another time.

Yum, I love blueberry pancakes, especially made with buttermilk (though I suppose yoghurt would taste similar). Belive it or not I still have some blueberries clinging on to one of my bushes... could be just the thing to use them up on :)

Wow that's amazing to have fruit on them at this time of year!
