Blueberry Pancakes
A very easy and satisfying recipe in which we’ve used dried blueberries (but you can use fresh if you prefer). If using dried blueberries, place 65g of them in a lidded container and cover the generously with water (e.g. double). Leave in the fridge overnight, or for about 90 minutes to reconstitute.

Approx. 1 tbsp vegetable or olive oil for frying

Heat a little oil in a frying pan, and place spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, well-spaced
