Smiley face pancakes (wholewheat pancakes)

stack of american pancakes
I arrange the blueberries to make a face on each pancake. These can be cooked up in a batch, eaten hot for breakfast or cold as a snack. They are also suitable for freezing.

makes about 8-10 pancakes

  • 200g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 medium free range egg
  • 300ml milk
  • 150g pack blueberries (optional)
  • Rice bran oil or coconut oil for cooking
  • maple syrup or agave nectar
  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder in a large bowl. Beat the egg with the milk, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in the milk to make a thick smooth batter. Gently stir in half the blueberries.
  2. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Drop a large tablespoonful of the batter per pancake into the pan to make pancakes about 7.5cm across. Make three or four pancakes at a time. Cook for about 3 minutes over a medium/high heat until small bubbles appear on the surface of each pancake, then turn and cook another 2-3 minutes until golden. Pop the pancakes into a warm oven to keep warm while you use up the rest of the batter. Serve with maple or agave syrup and the rest of the blueberries.
