One-cup Pancakes with Blueberries & Cacao Nibs - #breakfastseries


One-cup Pancakes with Blueberries & Cacao Nibs

This week at IHCC, we are cooking Jamie Oliver's recipes. This good looking British celebrity chef has a section on his website dedicated to family food.

One of his family recipes that I just have to make is his one-cup pancakes because I really love pancakes. They are so easy to make, versatile, delicious, and pretty too. Quoting Jamie, "These are the simplest pancakes to make with kids. You don't even need scales to weigh out the ingredients – all you need is a cup or a mug!"

Also, I can basically add anything I like into the batter and garnish with any topping that I fancy.


Recipe adapted from Jamie Oliver's one-cup pancakes with blueberries.
 

Ingredients:
(Makes 8 if you scoop the batter with the measuring set's 1/4-cup scoop)

1 cup wholemeal flour*
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 large egg
1/2 cup blueberries, with extra for garnishing
1/4 cup cacao nibs**
1/4 cup mixed granola, for garnishing
Honey or maple syrup, to drizzle

 * Jamie's original recipe uses 1 cup of self-raising/rising flour. I don't have it in my kitchen, so I substitute it with wholemeal flour (you can use normal plain flour too) and add baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

** Read about cacao nibs versus chocolate chips.


How to:

1. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add milk and egg. Whisk until smooth. Fold in blueberries and cacao nibs.

2. Heat up a frying pan and lightly grease with vegetable oil.

3. Scoop the batter with the measuring set's 1/4-cup scoop onto the hot frying pan.

4. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter to make 8 pancakes.

5. Stack the pancakes. Garnish with blueberries and mixed granola. Drizzle with honey (or maple syrup) before serving.

Stack, garnish, and serve!

Pancakes oh pancakes!

  1. We are pancake eaters around here, but we rarely get more creative beyond adding bananas or blueberries. Love the idea of using cacao nibs.

  3. I can see why these would be a big hit with your toddler. We love pancakes in our home, too, especially at dinner time.

  5. Adding cacao nibs is a fresh take. Curious whether it works better and adds to the flavor of pancakes?
