Spotty berry pancakes

Spotty berry pancakes



  • 2 cups plain flour (use Gluten-free)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder (use Gluten-free)
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 600mL buttermilk
  • 60g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup berries (I used raspberries and strawberries)
  • Extra unsalted butter for greasing pan


Stir the flour, baking powder and sugar together in a bowl. Add the eggs, buttermilk and melted butter, whisk to combine. Gently stir in berries. The mixture will be quite thick.

Heat a large non-stick frypan over low to medium heat and melt ¼ teaspoon of the extra butter. Pour 1/3 cup (I use my measuring cup) of pancake batter into the pan, spread mixture so it is not more than 1 cm thick and cook for 2-3 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn the pancake over gently (I don’t have the flipping-in-the-air skill perfected yet…) and cook for another minute.

Transfer cooked pancakes to a plate and keep warm (oven at 120°C) while cooking the rest of the pancakes.

Serve with maple syrup or honey and yoghurt or ice cream.


  • Plan ahead, pancakes take a lot longer to cook than pikelets because you do them one at a time. I’d start cooking at least 30 minutes before you want to start serving.
  • Use blackcurrants, red currants, blueberries and blackberries if you can get them.
  • I had some orange syrup left over from the Flourless citrus cake, which was a lovely accompaniment to the berries.
  • I used gluten-free flour and baking powder to make these pancakes gluten-free.
