For my children, a meal isn’t complete without a pudding and that includes when we are camping. There are two versions here, one for a sweet tooth and one for a whole gobfull of sweet teeth....

I wrote this recipe just as summer was ending and autumn beginning so enjoy my berry style pancake, or apple one to straddle the seasons. PYO is a great way to spend a few hours, and much cheaper way to get fresh berries and even apples.

Pancakes are ace for camping – flour, eggs, milk are basics from a local shop. I’ve added a bit of a twist here using fruit yoghurt for a denser pancake and also some bicarbonate of soda for a rise.

Get Prepped

Summer Berry Pancakes

  1. Shove all the batter ingredients in a big bowl and whisk it all up.
  2. Give it a good beating.. add more milk if you need to.. but remember your mixture need to be pretty thick - just enough to “gloop” off your spoon.
  3. I like my pancake mixture to sit for a bit. I’m not sure why – I think it just feels right after it’s had such a beating and before I then throw it in hot oil. So while its getting over it... make Apples in Toffee Sauce.
  4. Peel and cut apples into wedges. 
  5. Put butter and sugar into a saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.
  6. Add the wedges – and cook for about 6 or 7 minutes (depends on type of apple.) You don’t want mush.
  7. Pour into a bowl and set aside.  

Get Cooking

  1. Now heat your griddle or frying pan. Add a little butter and oil.
  2. Drop some of the batter on. Add some fruit if you want fruit pancakes, or leave plain if you are having the apple and toffee sauce.
  3. Cook on a medium heat until the batter starts to bubble.
  4. Turn over until cooked through pop on a plate and add topping.
