Serving size 12

By adding ricotta to these flap jacks, they become fluffy and incredibly light (which makes it easier to eat more than you are meant to). I also love the addition of the beautiful blueberries. Not only are they a ‘superfood’ but they are also one of my favourite fruits. Sweet and just a tiny bit tangy, they’re the perfect thing to serve with a stack of flap jacks.

As mentioned, the only way to serve these are stacked high with a generous drizzle of syrup. Coffee, orange juice and the morning paper are all optional, but certainly recommended!


1 ¼ cup flour1 tsp baking powder pinch of salt2 Tbsp caster sugar1 egg (I use extra-large free-range eggs)3 ½ Tbsp butter, melted½ cup milk½ cup ricotta cheese fresh blueberries (to add to the frying flapjacks and extra to serve) syrup, to serve


  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. Combine the egg, milk, butter and ricotta in a separate bowl and mix well.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet.
  4. Gently mix in the wet ingredients until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Fry spoonfuls of the mixture in a warm, non-stick frying pan. Add a generous tablespoonful’s worth of blueberries to each flap jack (on the un-cooked side) before flipping over.
  6. Remove the flap jacks from the pan and keep warm in a low oven until ready to serve.
  7. Serve with syrup (I prefer Maple) and fresh blueberries.
