Trine Hanhemann: Spelt Pancakes with Blueberries Recipe

  1. List Of Ingredients
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 400ml buttermilk
  4. 1 vanilla pod
  5. 200g wholegrain stoneground spelt flour
  6. 100g plain flour
  7. 1 tsp baking powder
  8. 1⁄2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  9. 1 1⁄2 tsp coarse sea salt
  10. 300g fresh blueberries
  11. 75g butter, for frying
  12. runny honey or syrup, to serve
  1. Serves 4 (12 Pancakes)

Method

To make the pancake batter, beat the eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk and beat again. Split the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with the tip of a knife. Mix the vanilla seeds, flours, bicarbonate of soda and salt together, then add to the egg mixture and beat again until smooth. Mix in 125g of the blueberries.

Melt a little butter in a frying pan and, using a soup spoon, place 3 separate spoonfuls in the pan so that you fry 3 small round pancakes at a time, turning them gently once, until nicely browned on both sides. Keep each batch warm under a tea towel while you cook the rest.

Serve right away, topped with more fresh blueberries and honey or syrup.


TIP: If you want to lose weight, eat one pancake with 100g fruit as your weekend treat, but don’t add any honey or syrup.
