Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda to a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
Add the milk, melted butter, egg, vanilla and white vinegar to a separate bowl or jug and whisk to combine.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry.
Gently whisk until combined. The batter will still be lumpy.
Add the blackberries to the batter.
Gently stir to combine but don't break up the berries.
Heat a teaspoon of the butter in a non-stick frying pan or skillet over a medium heat.
Add a ladle (about ¼ cup) of batter. When the centre begins to bubble, gently flip the pancake.
Cook until both sides are golden. Repeat until the batter is all used.
The baking soda, baking powder and vinegar all work together to make these really light and fluffy pancakes. Don't worry, they don't taste vinegary.
If using frozen blackberries, don't thaw them first.
When mixing in the blackberries, do it gently so the berries don't break up int the batter.
You'll know the pancakes are ready to flip when small bubbles appear in the centre.
Keep pancakes warm while you make more by placing them into a low oven.

I have a huge blackberry bush at the bottom of my garden. This year, it has produced loads of big, fat, juicy berries - so expect more blackberry recipes to come!
I'm Canadian, so as my birthright I'm obsessed with pancakes. Hey, we need some sort of vehicle for all that tasty maple syrup.
