Shrove Tuesday

This year I felt like a change from making the Traditional English Pancake and I made American Blueberry Pancakes instead.  I used this recipe from here.
200g SR flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 large egg
300ml milk (I used semi-skimmed)
A knob of butter, melted
75g blueberries, plus 75g for serving

butter for greasing pan

Simply whisk all of the ingredients together, except for the additional butter for cooking the pancakes.
Grease and heat the pan.  Place tablespoonfuls of the batter into the pan and cook on a medium heat for 2-3 minutes until bubbles start to rise through the mixture. Turn and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until golden.  Remove from pan and place on a warmed plate and cover whilst cooking the remainder of the batter.
Of course you have to have Maple Syrup with your pancakes!
They went down rather well!
 And as for those Traditional Pancakes ...
