Tots 100 Center Parcs February Challenge: Our perfect petit pancakes!

Once again Tots 100 and Center Parcs have teamed up to bring a fun family challenge for us to get involved in and for the month of February, what could be more fun than making pancakes together!
Even baby Trinity wanted to join in the fun!
Ok so Trinity may be a little young to make these pancakes just yet, but 6 year old Daniel can actually pretty much make these pancakes all by himself. The secret to these pancakes is that there is no tricky flipping involved and because they are smaller than the usual pancake day pancakes, they can be turned easily in the pan - they also seem to turn out perfectly everytime, hence we call them "Our perfect petit pancakes". The other added bonus is that you can usually make 4 or 5 at once using a large frying pan so they can all be prepared in one go. That way, the whole family can tuck in together rather than waiting for ages (or the kids getting stuck in whilst mum or dad is still stuck by the stove cooking the rest).
The other thing we all love about our special pancake recipe is that it is an all-year-round recipe and not just for pancake day. They taste fabulous as a dessert with some simple home-made berry ice cream like Daniel made when he got through to the Kent Cooks final. It is great fun adding the berries to the pancake and you can use whatever berries you like. For example, in the summer months we often use some chopped strawberries or raspberries and then in Autumn, blackberries are just perfect in this recipe. Throughout the winter you can just pop in a few berries from the freezer.
You can add in your favourite berries! This one has blueberries in it.
So here's the recipe:
Small handful Blueberries
100g Plain flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tbsp Sugar
100ml Milk
15g Butter
1 Egg

and here's how to make them:
1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, milk, egg.
2. Add in some melted butter (approximately half).
3. Heat the remainder of the butter in a frying pan.
4. Pour in the mixture, which will be quite thick, to make some small pancakes. Do not spread the mixture round the pan.
5. Gently drop in 4 - 5 blueberries into each pancake.
6. Once the pancakes have firmed-up, gently turn them over to cook the other side.
et voila! Perfect pancakes all year round.

And we promise that next year you will be able to help Trin...
