Something for the weekend – How will you do yours? (GF)


Blueberry and Ricotta Pancakes.  Little fluffy, juicy clouds that burst with flavour. Will you have yours with Vanilla Honey Butter and Fruit or Crispy Bacon and Maple Syrup?  Rather depends on my mood which I choose.


This pancake batter should serve 4 but if you are hungry 2 people can manage 🙂

You will need:

  • 1 Small Bowl
  • Fork
  • Scales / Measuring Spoons / Measuring Jug
  • Electric Whisk
  • Wooden Spoon or Spatula
  • Frying Pan
  • Fish Slice
  • Dessert Spoon
  • Preheated oven about 60C to keep pancakes warm
  • Plate or Baking tray in oven to put pancakes on


  • If you are having the vanilla honey butter now is the time to make it as it needs 30 minutes in the fridge to set

    Put your soft butter, honey and vanilla bean paste together into a bowl.

  • Mash and mix together with a fork until thoroughly combined.

    Once done pop in fridge whilst you make your pancakes

  • Pop your flour, sugar, and salt into your large mixing bowl.

    Stir and then make a well in the middle

  • Add your egg, buttermilk, ricotta, melted butter, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda to the bowl and whisk

  • Then add your milk and whisk again until you have a thick smooth batter

  • Stir in your blueberries with a wooden spoon or spatula

  • Melt a little butter into your frying pan

  • Add around a dessert spoon of mix per pancake to the pan

    Cook over a medium heat

  • When your pancakes have a firmer outside and you can see they have bubbles all over then turn them over

    Cook the other side for a minute

    Pop cooked pancakes in pre heated oven and repeat above 2 stages.

    Whilst pancakes are cooking you can cook your bacon or prep your fruit depending on what you would like

  • Crispy Bacon and Maple?

  • Or Vanilla Honey Butter with Fruit?

    Sometimes I like to add some PB2 as well but then I do love my nut butters 🙂
