      Hi Ellen,

      Thanks for spotting (and I have amended the recipe cooking time)- no this was a mistake and usually takes about 5 mins depending on how hot the pan is.
      Thanks again

      does it actually take 8 hours to cook, or was that just a mistake?

      Oh, and BUTTERMILK when you can find it makes it a good Southern US variation...they're much better with it.

      Be sure you're using SELF RISING flour (or adding baking soda/powder) to make them into a real fluffy American pancake. I never add butter to mine and have never seen anyone do that, but a bit of oil/butter in the pan to keep them from sticking is pretty essential.

    American Pancakes with Blueberries

    by esther swerling

    by esther swerlingViewed 2570 times


      Thick small pancakes - or we used to call them Drop Scones when I was a kid - with lasings of maple or golden syrup and topped with blueberries


      1. Firstly get a large bowl and mix together the flour and baking powder.

      2. Add a pinch of salt to the mixture for a little extra flavour.

      3. In a separate bowl mix the milk and the eggs and beat vigorously until fully blended.

      4. Put the knob of butter into a little microwavable dish (a little ramekin dish works well for me) and pop it into the microwave for a few seconds until fully melted.

      5. Now add the milk and egg mixture to the flour and baking powder and mix together until you achieve a smooth (no lumps please) mixture.

      6. While you are mixing the flour and egg/milk mixture together also add the melted butter and ensure that it is also well blended into the pancake mixture.

      7. As some of my children like blueberries and some don't, I tend to cook half the mixture first without blueberries and later add half the blueberries to the mixture and cook the rest of the pancakes with the blueberries included.

      9. Heat a little butter in a large frying pan. When the butter has melted, and using a large spoon drop,3 or 4 large blobs of mixture into the pan. Take care that the blobs don’t touch each other and join up as they will spread out in the pan.

      10. The pancakes will take about 2 to 3 mins per side to cook. Yow will know they are cook as little bubbles will appear in the upper surface of the pancake and then pop when cooked. At this point flip over the pancakes and allow to cooking on the other side as well.


      Ok that’s it - keep the pancakes warm or serve as you cook them. They are best served hot and straight out of the pan. Serve with golden syrup and the rest of the blueberries. To make the process easier I use a blender to get the batter to the right consistency.

        Fluffy Pancakes

          I tried these on Pancake Tuesday, they were delicious.


          1. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the salt.

          2. Add the egg and the milk to another bowl and whisk.

          3. Make a well in the flour and gradually add the milk and egg mixture, whisking continually to avoid lumps.

          4. Once the ingredients are combined, it should have the consistency of batter, coating the back of a spoon. If it's a bit thick add some water.

          5. Put the knob of butter in a frying pan on a medium-high heat until it melts. Pour the melted butter into the batter mixture and mix. You'll now have a thin coat of butter on your pan to cook your pancakes. After every 2 or 3 pancakes add another tiny sliver of butter.

          6. Ladle enough mixture into the pan to make a saucer sized pancake, after 3-4 minutes you should see bubbles rising. The pancake should be firm enough to lift by now and check the colour, when it's golden flip it over. The second side should only take 2-3 minutes.

          7. Repeat until the mixture is finished.
