We’ve all found ourselves in this situation, it's Pancake Day and you haven't really got time to make pancakes for you and your family before work, so you put it off and rush to make some when you get home! This easy blueberry pancakes recipe doesn't require any rushing around at all! All you need is a mixing bowl, frying pan and willingness to flip your pancakes!

Who doesn’t love pancakes, particularly blueberry pancakes? This recipe for one cup pancakes is simply brilliant and comes from the fantastic Mr Jamie Oliver! So why not give these a go and celebrate Pancake Day in style.



  • 200 grams of blueberries
  • 4 tablespoons of natural yoghurt
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Sea Salt


Step 1-Start by making the batter. Add the self-raising flour, the egg, the milk and a pint of the sea salt in to a mixing bowl and whisk everything together until it is a smooth consistency. Fold in the blueberries once this is done.

Step 2-Place a frying pan on a medium heat. Once the pan has warmed, add around half a tablespoon of olive oil ensuring the oil spreads out over the pan.

Step 3-To the frying pan add a few ladles of the batter you have made. Leave space between each ladle of batter so the pancakes have room to spread out and cook properly. You can cook the pancakes in batches as they only take a few minutes each to cook.

Step 4-Cook each pancake for roughly 1 to 2 minutes until they turn a golden brown colour. Flip them carefully to ensure they are evenly cooked. Once they are cooked, you are ready to plate them up.

Step 5-If you plan on cooking a big batch of these delicious once cup pancakes, simply repeat steps 2 to 4 ensuring you add more oil if the pancakes look like they may stick to the bottom of the pan.

Step 6-Serve these easy blueberry pancakes with a spoonful of the natural yoghurt and some more of the berries as garnish.
