American Blueberry Pancakes

1 Reviews

How to make blueberry pancakes:

For an interesting spin on fluffy American-style pancakes, try blueberry and ricotta. This delicious flavour combination works really well together, and is really yummy served with a spoonful of crème fraîche.

  1. Step 1:

    Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl then add the sugar and stir then make a well in the centre.  Add the egg yolks then slowly add the milk and vanilla extract, whisking until a smooth batter is made.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the ricotta and blueberries and carefully fold in.

  3. Step 3:

    In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they just reach soft peaks then slowly incorporate into the batter, folding in gently.

  4. Step 4:

    Lightly grease a frying pan with oil and heat on a medium heat, then scoop a heaped tablespoon of batter into the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden and fluffy. The pancakes will start to puff up as they cook.
