Blueberry Mini Stack Pancakes
You'll want to eat a whole stack of these fluffy, light little pancakes smothered in butter and my baked blueberry agave syrup.
To balance the sweetness of the pancakes, I've added lemon juice and ground galangal to the syrup. Greater galangal is in the ginger family. It has a citrus and mild black pepper flavor profile that compliment the blueberries perfectly.
This recipe is simple to prepare and would be ideal for breakfast or brunch on the weekend. Happy cooking!
Try adding different ingredients to your pancakes before you flip them, such as chocolate chips or slices of banana.

For the blueberry syrup

For the pancakes
In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, 3 tbsp sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to combine.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk to combine the milk, butter, vanilla paste, and egg yolk.
Pour the milk mixture into the flour and whisk to combine.
Add the egg white and 1 tsp of sugar to a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Beat on high until stiff peaks form. Turn off the mixer.
Fold the egg whites in two stages gently into the batter just to combine. Don't over-mix.
Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat.
Add the pancake batter by the ¾ scoop. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the pancakes are golden brown, flip and finish cooking, another 2 minutes.
Make a stack of 7 pancakes on a plate, top with salted butter, and a spoonful of blueberry syrup. Enjoy!
