    Used a mix of ingredients, but these do really take lavely!!!

    Makes 8 x 6" thick american pancakes

    150g/4.5oz plain flour
    150g/4.5oz self raising
    2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp barcarbonate of soda
    2 tsp of Vanilla essence
    1 tsp salt
    2 tbsp caster sugar
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    ground cinnamon, not too much
    300ml/9 fl oz milk
    2 large eggs
    4 tbsp cooled melted butter
    handful of blueberries chopped in half or any other fruit
    handful of raisins
    Maple syrup (works best) or honey

    Put the dry ingredients into a large mixable bowl (flour, baking powder, barc soda, cinnamon, salt, sugars)
    In a jug, mix together the milk, eggs, vanilla and the melted butter, lightly mix with a fork
    Add the jug contents into the flour and using an electrix mixer, mix until smooth
    If the batter is too thick then add a little more milk and if to runny, then add some more flour
    Then add the fruit and gently by hand mix in....
    Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter.
    When it's melted and starts to bubble, add a large spoonful of the batter mix in the middle of the pan so its approx 5-7mm thick and evenly, this will rise to 1cm
    leave until it starts to bubble and you see bubbles appear ontop...done leave too long as it will burn..., then flip over......until golden brown

    Best served with two eggs in the middle, bacon, sausages, mushrooms.....it FAT!

    Using a Jug to pour the contents into the pan is consistant, easier and less messy
