Cinnamon, Banana & Blueberry Pancakes

I do love having pancakes for breakfast. They generally signify a rest day from training. Making pancakes in our household is a team effort as I struggle to fry and flip them safely, so Neil takes this job and mine is to make the batter. Recently however, I discovered I can just as easily bake pancakes in the oven. It means you only end up with one massive one that you have to share, a bit like a frittata, but its so much easier and just as tasty. This recipe can be used for either method for making pancakes, but I definitely recommend you give making them in the oven a try. If you use fresh rather than frozen blueberries, then it will take around 5 minutes less time to bake in the oven.
