Ingredients
  • 350g Frozen for Freshness blueberries
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 230g self-raising flour
  • ½tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150ml buttermilk
  • 250ml skimmed milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 40g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • Dr. Oetker Food Colour Gel in Bright Red, Sky Blue, Ultra Violet and Black
  • 2tsp rapeseed oil, for frying
  • 150g fat-free Greek yogurt (optional)
  • 2tbsp clear honey (optional)
Method
  • Put the berries, lemon juice and 50g of the caster sugar in a pan. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins until the berries start to collapse and the mixture is syrupy. Set aside to cool.

  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, bicarb, cinnamon and the remaining sugar.

  • In a jug, whisk together the buttermilk, milk, eggs, vanilla and butter. Gradually add to the dry ingredients, whisking constantly, until it’s a smooth, thick batter.

  • Divide the batter between 4 bowls, then add one colour, a drop at a time, to each batter and stir to combine; remember that the colours will dull slightly when cooked.

  • Heat a little of the oil in a nonstick frying pan and add 1 ladleful of the batter at a time to the pan and cook for 1-2 mins, until small air pockets appear. Flip and cook on the other side for 1 min or until done. Repeat, keeping the cooked pancakes in a warm part of your kitchen.

  • Stack the pancakes and serve with a spoonful of coulis, a blob of yogurt and a little honey, if using. Time for everyone to dig in!
