Perfectly fluffy, irresistible lemon ricotta pancakes. They’re light and airy, with a subtle lemon flavor and topped with a sweet, syrupy blueberry sauce. The perfect weekend breakfast when you just need a little bit of comfort.
The inspiration for this dish came from a family tradition we have of making wassail, a traditional warm spiced cider punch from England. While hot chocolate is probably the most common winter drink, this cider is a whole new kind of cozy. It’s made with apple cider, three other fruit juices, and lots of cinnamon sticks. As it cooks, the flavors blend and the whole kitchen begins to smell of warm spice.
December is here! I’m celebrating my favorite time of year the only way I know how…by cooking with all of the flavors that remind me of the holidays, all month long. So light a fire, grab a blanket, and cozy up for a December full of wintery treats. I’m starting off with the most important meal of the day: breakfast! And with a breakfast like this, it’ll feel like Christmas morning is already here.
