One cup pancakes with blueberries

Category: food

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. As long as you use the same cup for measuring both the flour and the milk, you’ll be laughing!

  • Serves: 4
  • Time needed: 15 minutes
  • Difficulty Easy


  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 200g blueberries
  • olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons natural yoghurt


  • Step 1

    Crack the egg into a large mixing bowl, add the flour, milk and a tiny pinch of sea salt.

  • Step 2

    Whisk everything together until you have a lovely smooth batter, then fold through the blueberries.

  • Step 3

    Heat ½ a tablespoon of olive oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat, carefully tilting the pan to spread the oil out evenly.

  • Step 4

    Add a few ladles of batter to the pan, leaving space between each one so they have room to spread out slightly – each ladleful will make one pancake, and you’ll need to work in batches.

  • Step 5

    Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until little bubbles appear on the surface and the bases are golden, then carefully flip them over.

  • Step 6

    When the pancakes are golden on both sides, remove to a plate.

  • Step 7

    Repeat with the remaining batter, adding a little more oil to the pan between batches, if needed.

  • Step 8

    Serve the pancakes while they’re still hot, with a dollop of yoghurt and some extra fresh berries, if you like.
