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 🙂

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 🙂
