The Happiest of Happy Pancakes to You!

Happy Pancake day!

I absolutely love pancakes. I'm typically more of a lemon and sugar crêpe kind of gal but I will never say no to an American pancake.

I made these beauties a few years ago and couldn't resist sharing the picture with you. Presenting the blueberry ricotta stack absolutely swathed in golden syrup. 

I'll just leave this here for a moment...

blueberry pancakes with ricotta

Adapted from a Gordon Ramsay recipe they are simple to make and so satisfyingly delicious.


  • 125g plain flour
  • 120g fresh blueberries
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of bicarb
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 125g ricotta 


Mix together the dry ingredients, sifting if necessary. Make a well in the middle and tip in the egg yolks. In a slow and steady stream add the milk and whisk gently until combined.

Fold in the ricotta and blueberries. Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks and fold into the mixture. Cook on a medium heat in a greased frying pan until cooked through.

Greek yoghurt, honey and more fresh berries would be a great alternative topping, however if you are planning on having a pancakey blow out, golden syrup makes a perfect ly sinful treat.

What will you be having on your pancakes today?
