Pikelets with warm blueberry sauce

So, pikelets. They essentially taste like pancakes but have the texture of crumpets. I always remember having them toasted with butter but these ones are straight from the pan with some home-made blueberry sauce. I made these for breakfast this morning, so simple and such a treat.

for the pikelets (makes about 10)
1 cup plain flour
3/4 cup soy milk
1 tbps caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Egg replacer to replace one egg (I used orgran)
Vegan margarine or oil for frying (margarine is yummier)

for the sauce 
125g blueberries
A splash of water
1.5 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp xanthan gum

Mix all the dry pikelet ingredients in to a bowl, well. Add the wet ingredients then whisk. Not for too long though, just until there are no lumps.
On a medium-high heat spoon the batter out into a well oiled/marged pan a tbsp at a time to form small pancakes. Just blob it in, it doesn't matter what shape they are. Flip when they are bubbling and cook the other side. Stack them on a plate as you go to keep them warm. Be sure to add more margarine/oil to the pan as you go along so as not to have them stick to your pan.
For the sauce, simply add all the ingredients in a saucepan, stir well and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and allow to slightly cool and thicken. Spoon on to pikelets and enjoy.
