American Style Pancakes with Winter Berries

Happy Pancake Day! Although I love a bit of tradition and will be having lemon and sugar pancakes this evening, you’ve sometimes got to break the mould.

Makes 8 pancakes

Prep and cook time: 45 mins


For the pancakes:

  • 200g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 25g Butter, melted
  • 200ml Milk
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

For the sauce:

Per person

  • 100g Frozen Winter Berries
  • 1 tbsp Granulated Sugar

To serve:

Per person

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Yogurt


  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients, the flour, baking powder and sugar
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave for 20 seconds
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the eggs, melted butter and milk
  4. Whisk the ingredients together until smooth
  5. Let the batter rest by making the winter berry sauce. In a saucepan add the berries, a splash of water (around 20ml per portion) and the sugar. Let the berries cook down a little and the sauce to get sticky.
  6. In a non stick frying pan, heat the oil over a medium heat. Using a ladle, spoon the pancake mix into the pan. (for best results do only one or two pancakes at a time) Fry for two mins on either side or until golden brown.
  7. Stack the pancakes, dollop the coconut yogurt on and drizzle the winter berries over the top
  8. Time to enjoy them!
