A berry good morning - blueberry pancakes
Refine sugar free blueberry pancake, easy baby first food packed with eggs and milk and fruit! You can freeze them too! Research suggests that we were eating pancakes during the Stone Age, 30,000 years ago! So they are definitely an evolutionary food for baby to try!
Makes 12-15 pancakes
120g fresh blueberries
100g plain flower
2 tsp baking powder
Veg oil to cook
Maple syrup/yogurt to serve
1. Heat blueberries for 1-2 mins on hob, take of heat and mash them a little so all the berries are split open.
2. Separate the eggs and beat the whites with an electric beater until soft peaks form.
3. Mix egg yolk with milk, and add to flour and baking powder, then mix. Add blueberries stir through mixture.
4. Fold in egg whites gently – this is where the puffed rise in your pancake will come from.
5. Heat a little veg oil in pan on a medium heat, add approx a table spoon of pancake batter (to make a small pancake at around 5-6 cm diameter).
6. You will know when it's ready to turn as it will start to form little bubbles on the exposed side which pop to form small holes. Flip them carefully using a fish slice or spoon.
7. They usually need turning after around a minute.
8. I flip my about 4-5 times just to make sure egg is cooked (raw egg and baby not a good combo) - so when it looks cooked on outside I turn heat down and heat the pancake through a little more.
Heat a dish in oven to put pancakes on when cooked to keep them warm as you cook the remaining. I use to serve these with thick Greek yogurt spread on top when Zahara was under 1 years old, now she gets maple syrup! You can freeze these by placing on baking paper lined tray then pop them in to freezer bag when frozen, later, defrost and reheat in oven, so they make for a good batch cook.
