Stack of pancakes with blueberry sauce

These are a great breakfast idea for any occasion, including mine which was just to satisfy pancake cravings. I'm only human!

Pancake batter:
1 cup of plain flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
6 heaped tablespoons of raw sugar
1 cup of soy milk
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (optional)

mix together dry ingredients well in a bowl and make a well in the center
add wet ingredients and blend until combined with few to no bumps

Heat up a frying pan and add some vegan butter to minimize sticking to the pan

Add small amounts and cook no more than 3 at a time in the pan - set aside

Blueberry sauce:
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
4 heaped tablespoons of raw sugar
3/4 cup of water (a little more if you'd prefer more sauce)
2 tablespoons of cornflour dissolved in 3 tablespoons of water.

Add water, sugar and frozen blueberries to a pot and bring to the boil, the water will discolour and match the berries, this is normal
Let boil for 5 minutes (blueberries must soften) and then add the cornflour and lemon juice, take off the heat and mix in, the sauce will thicken (add more water or cornflour depending on what consistency you would like the sauce)

Stack up your pancakes (or don't) and add your blueberry sauce. Enjoy :)
