Pop the skillet in the middle of the table, along with a jug of maple syrup, possibly some cream, and hand everyone a spoon to dig in.
I love dishes where everyone can just tuck in. It creates such a sweet intimate moment between friends and loved ones. It makes everyone physically come closer, it’s great.
As far as hotcakes go, I have to say this is a pretty awesome one.
The dough is light and fluffy, and is just dotted through with delicious plump blueberries. The ricotta is deliciously creamy and refreshing, and makes this lush pancake even lighter!
I actually made this hotcake as a goodbye for one of my friends, and we all sat around and ate the whole thing.
It’s one of those hotcakes that are pretty impossible to leave any leftovers. Luckily it’s also not one of those pancakes that leaves you feeling super weighed down and sluggish, so you won’t feel terrible for gobbling it up!
A huge light and fluffy gluten free blueberry and ricotta hotcake is, for me, the perfect breakfast to share with friends and loved ones. It's so pretty, and tastes absolutely delicious as well!

1 teaspoon lemon zest
100g (1 cup) blueberries
125g fresh ricotta
Coconut oil, for cooking
Crème fraîche or double cream
Preheat the oven to 185ºC/375ºF.
Whisk together the flours, baking powder, coconut sugar, vanilla, and salt in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk the almond milk, egg yolks, and lemon zest.
Add to the bowl with the flours, stirring to combine.
Beat the egg whites until fluffy, then stir two tablespoons of the stiff egg whites into the the batter. Fold in the remaining egg whites using a spatula, so the batter is light and fluffy.
