Great British Bake Off Student Style: Blueberry Pancakes


With Fresher’s right round the corner, the inevitable hang overs are approaching. Inspired by the all new ‘batter week’ on this week’s episode of The Great British Bake Off, this two step, simple pancake recipe exists to make those morning afters slightly more bearable. Make up a batch, wake up the housemates (at a reasonable hour of course), over indulge in the maple syrup and tuck into a plate of pancakes whilst piecing together the events of the night before.

  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 300ml milk
  • One knob butter
  • 150g pack blueberries
  • sunflower oil or a little butter for cooking
  • golden or maple syrup


  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  2. 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. Beat in the melted butter.
  3. Gently stir in half the blueberries.

    Heat a teaspoon of oil or small knob of butter 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.

  5. Make three or four pancakes at a time. Cook for about 3 minutes over a medium heat until small bubbles appear on the surface of each pancake, then turn
    and cook another 2-3 minutes until golden.
  6. Cover with kitchen paper to keep warm while you use up the rest of the batter.
  7. Serve with golden syrup and the rest of the blueberries.
