These thick, delicious hotcakes are a popular weekend brunch recipe in my household, which then turns into afternoon tea... In fact, they work as a snack at any time of day — I have been known to jump in the car, mid-bite, with a reserve wrapped in kitchen towel! These are also great made with raspberries instead of blueberries.

For the coffee mascarpone

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 shot espresso
or 1 teaspoon instant coffee, mixed with 2 tablespoons hot water, cooled
125g mascarpone
1 tablespoon icing sugar

For the hotcakes

Quantity Ingredient
225g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
good pinch salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 medium egg
225ml buttermilk
30g unsalted butter, melted
100g blueberries or raspberries
olive oil, for frying
maple syrup, to serve

Method

  1. Make the coffee mascarpone by mixing the espresso together with the cheese in a bowl. Stir in the icing sugar and mix until it is all combined. Set aside in the fridge.
  2. For the hotcakes, sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, then add the salt and sugar. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk and butter. Add the flour mixture and the blueberries to the egg mixture. Carefully stir the ingredients together until just combined — don’t over-mix the batter as it is better to have a few lumps than to over-work everything.
  3. Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Put about 2 tablespoons of batter per cake into the pan and fry in batches for 3–4 minutes. Flip the cakes over and fry for a further 2–3 minutes until the cakes are golden brown.
  4. Serve with a dollop of the coffee mascarpone and a drizzle of maple syrup for some extra sweetness.
