Have had this recipe for quite a while and those who were at the Aratula COG a few years back would remember I cooked these up for breakfast.  I cooked them using the lid of the Bedourie camp oven.

Quite a compliment after breakfast today when Maggie said, why would we go out for breakfast when we can have these here at home.

Ingredients
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons white sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Method
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl.  Beat the egg and milk together and mix into the dry ingredients.  Add melted butter and beat well.  Stir in blueberries

Now here is the important part. Leave sit for an hour Over that hour you will see the batter fill with millions of tiny little bubbles and this makes the pancakes very light and fluffy.

Cook on a hot plate and serve with dollop cream and "real" maple syrup.

Photos below show my cook-up today

Pancake Batter,

Hey Derek, I really disagree with you big time. 

- Letting pancake batter sit around makes it stale.

- I use baking soda (granted Baking powder is 2/3 cream of tartar and 1/3 baking soda, but you have to use it quickly, since it doesn't keep well)  & cream of tartar is tart, hence your sugar.

- More or less I figure out what I want in # of pancakes for me, measure flour (often whole wheat)

- Put in baking soda

- Put in 1/2 c. powdered milk

- Add oil of some kind - safflower, walnut........ (not olive), maybe butter

- 1 cup blueberries frozen

- 1 large egg or 2 regular sized eggs

- Milk to cooking thickness.

Cook in cast iron frying pan with some oil & maybe butter @ 3.5 setting out of 10.  It's a low setting because you start with frozen berries.

& that's more or less a basic I feel like having pancakes for breakfast.  Or it might be spread partially thawed sliced frozen strawberries on top of each pancake while the next pancake is cooking.

Pancakes should be mix and cook.

Sometimes I'm in a mood for sweet topping (maple syrup, or honey, or......) sometimes not.  & that's better if you only use a bit, rather than lots and lots.

They do look nice, but is there a reason that they are not round  Smiley Smiley

I am my mother's daughter.

Many mom's and other chefs agree with me.  Many's the pancakes I've had in other people kitchens.
