Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes

Watch the video for this recipe:

Summer is bursting with berries and I really enjoy using them for various breakfast dishes like in this delicious Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes. Blueberries has always been great in pancakes, and are totally amazing in these ones made with ricotta.


What I love about this recipe is the fact that the whites are whipped separately and then folded into the pancake mixture. That makes the pancakes really fluffy and soft.


The add of ricotta and lemon zest really takes the pancakes to a next level.  They will definitely be a family favorite and you might consider double the recipe as they will be gone in seconds.
