Serves: 4

Prep time: 5 mins

Cooking time: 25 mins


  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • sea salt
  • olive oil
  • 4 tbsps natural yoghurt
  • 200g blueberries (optional)


  1. Whisk the egg in a large bowl, then add the flour, milk and a tiny pinch of sea salt.
  2. Fold through the blueberries
  3. Put a large frying pan on medium heat. After a minute or so, add 1⁄2 tablespoon of oil.
  4. Add a few ladles of batter to the pan, leaving enough space between each one so they have room to spread out slightly.
  5. Cook the pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes, or until little bubbles appear on the surface and the bases are golden, then flip them over.
  6. Transfer the pancakes to a plate once they are golden on both sides.
  7. Serve the pancakes straight away, topped with a dollop of natural yoghurt, and some extra berries.
