These are the simplest pancakes to make with kids.

You don’t even need scales to weigh out the ingredients of these One-cup pancakes with blueberries.

All you need is a cup or a mug. As long as you use the same cup for measuring both the flour and the milk, you’ll be laughing!



  • 1 large free-range egg
  • cup of self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 200 g blueberries
  • olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons natural yoghurt


  1. Crack the egg into a large mixing bowl, add the flour, milk and a tiny pinch of sea salt.
  2. Whisk everything together until you have a lovely smooth batter, then fold through the blueberries.
  3. Heat ½ a tablespoon of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, carefully tilting the pan to spread the oil out evenly.
  4. Add a few ladles of batter to the pan, leaving space between each one so they have room to spread out slightly – each ladleful will make one pancake, and you’ll need to work in batches.
  5. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until little bubbles appear on the surface and the bases are golden, then carefully flip them over.
  6. When the pancakes are golden on both sides, remove to a plate.
  7. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding a little more oil to the pan between batches, if needed.
  8. Serve the pancakes while they’re still hot, with a dollop of yoghurt and some extra fresh berries, if you like.


– You can cook up this hero batter in four delicious ways: classic crêpes, fat, fluffy pancakes, wicked waffles or pancake sandwiches.
– If you don’t have blueberries, blackberries or raspberries would work a treat, or simply leave out altogether.

– A squeeze of lemon and a small sprinkling of golden caster sugar would be delicious.
– Up your fruit count with a handful of seasonal mixed berries, such as strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries.
– Peeled and sliced banana, grated apple or pear, or even drained tinned fruit in juice are also winners.
– You could finish with a dusting of ground cinnamon, a drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of Greek-style yoghurt.
– Go savoury! A rasher of grilled higher-welfare streaky bacon would be super-tasty.
