Serves 6-8

You will need:
2 cups plain flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup milk
5 tablespoons melted butter
blueberry jam
  1. Place flour, salt, eggs, milk and butter in a food processor and beat until you have a smooth batter.
  2. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes.
  3. This will make the flour swell some, so if the batter feels too thick simply add a little more milk.
  4. Cook on a medium hot, greased skillet, using about 3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake.
  5. Swirl the pan so that the batter covers the pan.
  6. Cook 1 minute, turn over using a spatula.
  7. They should be light brown on each side.
  8. Do a few test pancakes before you start to save "keepers". You'll need 10-14 pancakes to build your cake.
  9. Start to build the cake by layering pancakes and jam on a serving platter.
  10. Once your cake is built, cover the top with more jam, slice and serve!
