Blueberry Pancakes


150g self raising flour
1 egg
Pinch salt
2 fl oz  whole milk
3 tbsp buttermilk
1/2 tsp ground mixed spice
50g caster sugar
A little vegetable oil for frying

75g ripe blueberries

Sieve the flour, salt and spices into a large bowl, add the sugar.

Lightly beat together the milk, buttermilk and egg and add to the bowl with the flour mixture, stir to bring it all together then whisk until smooth, add a little milk if the mixture is too stiff.

Gently stir in the blueberries.

Heat a heavy based frying pan until very hot, add just 1tsp oil and use a piece of kitchen paper to rub it over the base of the frying pan, turn the heat down slightly and add the batter 1-2 tbsp at a time.

Cook in batches for 1-2 minutes each side and keep warm until needed.

Sprinkle the pancakes with icing sugar and serve with cream, ice-cream or to accompany a nice cup of tea.
