    • 150g (5oz) self-raising flour
    • Pinch of salt
    • 175ml (6fl oz) milk
    • 30g (1oz) butter
    • 1tbsp golden syrup
    • 125g (4oz) blueberries
    • Oil for frying
    • Golden syrup, to serve


    • To make the pancake batter, tip the flour into a bowl and stir in the salt. Gradually whisk in the milk to give a smooth batter. Warm together the butter and golden syrup until the butter has melted, and then beat into the batter. Stir in the blueberries.

    • Heat a frying-pan. Grease the base of the pan sparingly, using a sheet of kitchen paper dipped in oil. Spoon tablespoons of mixture on to the base of the frying-pan and spread them out to about 6-7cm (2½-3in) in diameter. Cook for about a minute, then turn over and cook for about 30 seconds longer or until both sides are a light golden colour.

    • Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining batter.

    • Serve pancakes with extra golden syrup drizzled over them.
