blueberry flapjacks/crumpetsFlapjacks or crumpets remind me of school holidays. My gran used to make a huge batch of flapjacks in the morning and we would tuck into them with butter, cinnamon and sugar while watching “KTV”.  So whenever I bite into a flapjack, I have this fond memory.
When I spotted lush blueberries at Woolies, I just had to make a batch of Blueberry Flapjacks served with creme fraiche and honey. It was a craving I needed to satiate.  If you don’t have creme fraiche, use thick Greek-style yoghurt. This will surely bring smiles to the breakfast table.

Ingredients:
1/2 c (125 ml) milk
1/2 c (125 ml) vegetable oil
1/2 c (125 ml) castor sugar
3 eggs
1/2 t (2.5 ml) vanilla essence
1 1/2 c (375 ml) cake flour
2 t (10 ml) baking powder
a good pinch of salt
125 g fresh blueberries
To serve:
100 g extra fresh blueberries
1 c (250 ml) Creme fraiche or Greek Yoghurt
Honey for drizzling

Method:
Beat the milk, oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla essence together until sugar has dissolved.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together into a large bowl. Mix in the blueberries. Make a well in the centre and add the milk mixture. Mix until well combined and smooth. Allow to stand for at least 15 minutes before frying.
Heat a heavy based frying pan to a moderate temperature and wipe with an oiled paper towel to lightly grease.
Drop heaped tablespoonfuls of batter into the pan (making sure there are at least 3 berries in each). When bubbles rise to the surface, turn them over and cook the other sides until golden.
Serve hot or room temperature with creme fraiche or Greek yoghurt, a drizzle of honey and extra berries OR hot with butter, cinnamon and sugar.
TIP: Replace vanilla essence with zest of 1 lemon to add a refreshing zing to the batter.

FYI: I use my AMC Frying pan which doesn’t need to be over a high heat. Once hot, I turn the heat down to 2 or a low gas flame to cook these flapjacks. No oil needed, just a wipe from an oiled paper towel or brush.
