It’s Pancake Day tomorrow, and to celebrate, we’ve teamed up with the guys at JWV+ to bring you a trio of great pancake recipes to try out. Mixed berries are always a great topping on Pancake Day, so we’ve added some blueberries to our pancake mix, to provide a sweet burst with every bite. Check out the steps below and watch the video at the end to see how to recreate these easy to make blueberry pancakes, inspired by JWV+’s mixed berry drink.

- 135g/4¾oz plain flour
- 135ml milk
- 1 level tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- Small punnet blueberries
MIXED BERRY COMPOTE:
- Splash water
- Handful of mixed, fresh berries
- Small squeeze of honey
Makes 4 – 5 pancakes
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
1. MAKE THE PANCAKE BATTER:
Add the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to a large bowl and mix together. To this dry mix add the milk, beaten egg and melted butter and mix through until well combined. Add the punnet of blueberries and mix together.
2. MAKE THE BLUEBERRY PANCAKES:
Place a large frying pan over a low heat and grease lightly with butter. Using a ladle, pour a spoonful of the blueberry pancake mix into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip the pancake over and continue to cook for a further minute until golden. Repeat this process with the rest of the batter. While your pancakes are cooking, move on to making the mixed berry compote.
3. MAKE THE MIXED BERRY COMPOTE:
Place some fresh mixed berries into a saucepan on a low-medium heat and add a splash of water and a squeeze of honey. Simmer for a couple of minutes until the berry juices are released. If you don’t have fresh berries at hand, you could use frozen, mixed berries.
4. SERVE UP AND ENJOY:
Stack the pancakes and serve with fresh berries and the mixed berry compote. Serve with a dollop of fresh cream or natural yoghurt. Check out the steps in the video below.
