Father's Day Recipe: Blueberry & hazelnut pancakes

The best start to Father's Day is a delicious breaky. Our friends at Sweets For Tilly have put together a ‘kid-friendly’ and scrumptious pancake recipe to sweeten dad up on his special day. The recipe is also full of natural sugars so a little more healthy than the average pancake.


Makes 10 pancakes

  • 200 grams self-raising flour – sifted
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 300 ml of milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 90 grams of finely chopped hazelnuts (or whiz in a food processor for it to be finely chopped)
  • 150 grams frozen blueberries
  • A small knob of butter for cooking

A delicious twist on the classic pancake


1. Mix the dry ingredients and the nuts in a large bowl.

2. Beat the egg with the milk and then make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Whisk the milk into the dry ingredients until you have a thick batter.

3. Gently stir in half the blueberries into the batter mix.

4. Put a large non-stick frying pan on a low-medium heat and add a small knob of butter until it melts.

5. Ladle the batter into the pan, cook for 2-3 minutes until there are bubbles forming on the surface of each pancake.

6. Turn the pancake and cook for another 2-3 minutes until golden.

7. Keep the pancakes warm in a low temp oven, while you cook the rest of the batter.

8. Serve with yoghurt and the remainder of the blueberries. Or for a special treat top with golden syrup with the blueberries.

This is a great recipe for all ages!

The Mauritian vanilla tea flavour pays homage to their island heritage, with Jacqueline moving here with her husband many years ago to start a family and settle in Australia.
