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.

Blueberry flapjacks/crumpetsBlueBerry Flapjacks
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

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.
