    Cailin's Blueberry Pancakes with Thickened Cinnamon Sour Cream!

    Ok we had this last weekend, and OMG it was SUPURB!

    Pancake Batter

    2 Cup SR Flour
    1/4 Brown Sugar (or more depending on the sweetness of your tooth)
    2 TBS Oil
    2 Egg - Seperated
    1 1/2 Cups Milk
    2 Tsp Vanilla
    1 400g tin of Blueberries in Syrup (drained and lightly rinsed)

    Cinnamon thickened sour cream



    1 300ml Tub Sour Cream
    1/4 tsp Cinnamon (or to taste)
    3-4 TBSP Icing Sugar

    Icing Sugar for Dusting

    In a large bowl whisk Flour & Sugar. In another medium sized bowl whisk together the wet ingredients (minus the egg whites) and combine the wet and dry ingredients. Fold the blueberries into the pancake batter and set aside. In another bowl whisk the 2 egg whites until stiff then gently fold into pancake batter. Cook pancakes on a medium low heat as they tend to darken quickly due to the sugar and fruit content. I use my ice cream scoop to get the right size I want

    In another bowl whisk cream sugar and cinnamon together until it thickens (yes sour cream does thicken... its BLISS!)

    Layer on a plate some pancakes, dust with icing sugar and serve a generous TBS or so of the Thickened Sour Cream and enjoy.

    This combination is HEAVENLY and it tastes almost like blueberry cheesecake.

    I have no idea why or how I came up with this, we were having blueberry pancakes and I wanted something creamy to go with and only had sour cream. I tried to whip it and to my surprise I was left with this heavenly cheesecakey creamy topping.

    ENJOY! It sounds like lots of work but in reality the whipping of eggwhites & cream take all of 3 minutes and it is way worth it.

    If you're making for 2 you might want to halve the batch, but you can freeze the cooked ones and pop them in Zander's lunchbox for preschool We do this amount due to the pancake hoovers known as my children

    And if you want to get all healthy you can add wholemeal flour (half half) but I would then add a tsp of baking soda unless you are using wholemeal SR flour.

    And with the cinnamon if you are worried 1/4 would be too much just do a nice sprinkle and then to taste. I like the measurements I've given but each persons tastes are different so maybe 1/8th if you're unsure

    I have a matching pancake hoover too, so no worries there & he'd love them for preschool. I think the cinammon should be ok, I have two very big fans of cinnamon here

    I made these ones the other day, courtesy of Ms Donna Hay!Have to say they didn't last long.

    Combine 2 cups of plain flour, 2 tsps of baking powder and 1/2 cup of caster sugar in a bowl. Combine 2 eggs, 1/1/2 cups milk, and 70g melted butteer in another bowl.
    Whisk and combine into the flour mix. Cook 1 tbsp of mix over low heat in a med frying pan.

    Mmmmm definately off to make these now.
