Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Compote. Pancakes are a big deal in my house. I’ve started to make a big batch of our scratch mix and keep it in the fridge so it’s super easy to whip up. Add a little milk an egg and boom you’re done. That’s the basic version. Basic is good but sometimes you want a little something something extra right? Like ricotta and blueberries. How can that be bad? It can’t.

Blueberries are little blue dynamos. They’re full of antioxidants, they’re incredibly versatile and pack a powerful flavor punch. Basically they’re good and good for you. Our Ricotta pancakes have them peppered throughout and then as if that wasn’t enough they’re topped with a blueberry compote. Can you tell we like blueberries? Compote couldn’t be easier to make and you can use fresh or frozen blueberries. If you can simmer and stir you’re golden.

      Thanks Betsy! I’ll be posting my homemade mix later this week : )

    Paula I love this (I feel like I say that in every comment I leave on your blog but it IS true!). We do not have blueberries in our area of the country, and though I still buy and love them, I love that you are partnering with the ‘Blueberry council’ to bring us this fantastic recipe. Seems a beautiful respite from winter’s chill!

    Off the bush! Every summer we spend 3-4 hours blueberry-picking thirty miles away from our home and blueberries taste best when they’re eaten off the bush. Other than that, I like them mixed with other berries in a pie.

    Angie Gibg /

    I love them mixed in w/yogurt and chia seeds, and also juiced w/kale, apples, carrots & ginger for a spicy (healthy!) breakfast. And I’m southern so who am I kidding, I love them in a cobbler most of all… sigh.

    I love pancakes and make them almost weekly and try to freeze a few for days I’m too lazy to make them from scratch. The only way my husband will eat them is with fresh fruit on top. Lately, I eat blueberries by the handful by themselves, or in greek yogurt or on pancakes! 🙂
