These are a great breakfast for all the family. Although they don’t have to be just for breakfast. They are lovely topped with some maple syrup. For baby led weaning, if you heat some blueberries, they will release their own natural juice, which yon can then pour over these before serving. Either way they don’t last very long in my household, my kids LOVE them.
Apple and Blueberry Pancakes
- 1 cup of all purpose flour
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
- 1 apple peeled and cored
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 2 tbs of oil
- fresh blueberries
- unsalted butter
- Add the apple to a small saucepan and cover with a little water, stew until softened and then drain water and blitz into a smooth apple sauce. Allow too cool
- Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda to a large jug.
- Add the eggs, apple sauce and oil and then gradually add the milk, mixing as you do. Your batter should be well combined, but still a little lumpy.
- Melt a little butter in frying pan or skillet over a medium high heat and add a couple of dessert spoons of the mix per pancake.
- Add some blueberries to the top of the pancake and then flip over, both sides should be golden. Repeat process with remaining batter.
- Serve either drizzled with some maple syrup or you can heat some more of the blueberries until they release their natural juices and pour this over the top of the pancakes.

How old does the child need to be to get eggs in their food? I mean, I let my twins have some of my pancakes, and got no reaction at all, but then afterwards I was like “hmm… maybe that was not a good idea..?”
They say if you do not have any allergies in the family you can try egg at 6 months but I think it is best to wait until the child is 9 months. My baby rejected anything with egg in until only recently as is now 10 months old. Also the egg has to be really well cooked and I think then less of a problem. I think it is the yellow bit that gives the most reaction as I know you can give the white bit hard boiled at 6 months with no problems. Avoid completely if any sign of ecezma as they advise to avoid dairy products till a year or perhaps more if the child has ecezma.
Everything I’ve read says give the Yolks not the whites of egg.
Yes it is the yolks that are OK but not the whites. I just tried eggs yesterday with my 10month old (used the entire egg when making one of the recipes on here instead of just the yolk). The “potato cakes” were baked so the egg was cooked through. This is going to sound SO silly but I read on-line to rub scrambled egg on your baby’s arm and then check her skin 15mins later to see if there is a rash or reaction. Of course it’s not the same as digesting the egg, but if there is a severe allergy the skin should indicate one. I did it on my 10month old. She ate my recipe and had no reaction, thank goodness.
Hello, Can I use frozen blueberries? As you don’t get fresh all year round. Can I mix blueberries in the batter instead of sprinkling it on pancake? How you defrost/reheat them? Thanks 🙂
Can i just use some applesauce if i want to cut down on time? If so how much would i use?
I thought blueberries were chockable. Is it different if they are cooked? My Costco noe sells a bag of organic frozen blueberries!
