MR. HUBBY IN THE KITCHEN: Homemade Pancakes and Blueberry Sauce

Today is ANZAC Day, therefore a public holiday here in Australia. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. If you would like to read more about it, here are some recommended links for you:

Today, we were able to have breakfast as a family and our menu was consisted of weetbix with blueberries (for Miss Junior), some homemade pancakes, a blueberry sauce and some fruit salad (for the rest of the family).

As I have mentioned in my writing titled 'Sunday Special' as well, we are so lucky to have such a talented and adventurous cook, Mr. Hubby, at home. He definitely needs a whole team of cleaners after him but lets leave it there as it is not today's topic.


This morning, we all couldn't get enough of his food once again. The recipe of his pancakes and blueberry sauce as well as some pictures are below for you.

Homemade Pancake


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 glasses of milk
  • some melted butter (about 50g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking/bi-carb soda 
  • plain flour 
  • orange zest (optional)
  • some spray oil for cooking

Beat the eggs until fluffy. Add milk, butter and bi-carb soda and start adding flour as you whisk. You need to aim for a creamy consistency and once you have it, no more flour is needed. 

Heat up your pan with a small amount of spray oil in it. Once hot, pour in some of your pancake mixture and cook it in high heat. When starts having some bubbles on it, it means, it is time to turn it upside down and cook the other side. It only takes seconds or a few minutes to cook a pancake, so make sure you don't walk away once you put it in the pot. We like it nice and thin. So, you may need to make a few of them per person. Best served hot.

Homemade Blueberry Sauce

  • Blueberries (we used organic blueberries)
  • Water (half the level of blueberries)

Put the blueberries with a small amount of water into a saucepan and heat it up. Once boiled, you can lower the heat and simmer it for a few minutes until it forms a sauce-like consistency. Best served hot.

Excuse the dirty plate please. This is Mr. Junior's plate after eating his pancakes. This is his own design.

Note: Have you noticed that there is no sugar or salt in any of the recipes above? Make your own and see if there is ever a need for any of it in these recipes.
