Raspberry Ricotta Hotcakes

Raspberry Ricotta Hotcakes

We have a tradition in our little family that we have “Pink Pancakes” for breakfast on our eldest girls birthday (the youngest isn’t so interested in breakfast!). This year because Miss E turned double digits, we splashed out and had Raspberry Ricotta Hotcakes!! Woohoo!  They are super easy to make (especially in the Thermomix, I’ve got both methods below) and super yummy to taste.

I can’t really remember when the tradition started but previous “pink pancakes” that we have made are last years Pink Paleo Pancakes (we also made these for Pancake day),

and have put a bit of rhubarb puree through our Apple Sauce  ones too.

I just use my go to favourite Ricotta Hotcake recipe and add the raspberries.  If you do have time to make a batch for breakfast on school days any extras go well in lunch boxes too (with an ice pack in the box).

Raspberry Ricotta Hotcakes


  • 250 g ricotta (one small tub)
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 250 g milk
  • 150g SR flour (I used GF)
  • 75g frozen raspberries (chopped if mixing by hand)
  • fruit, honey or maple syrup to serve
  • butter for melting in the frying pan


  1. Put all the ingredients in the mixing bowl and combine (Thermomix 10 seconds / speed 4) To make them completely pink add the raspberries in at this stage too. To have "pink flecks" like we did add in at the end and stir through gently (Speed 3 / 3 seconds).
  2. Melt a knob of butter in a large frying pan over a medium high heat.
  3. Put tablespoons of the mixture into the frying pan and cook for 2 – 3 minutes or until bubbles start appearing on the top. Flip over and cook for another 2 – 3 minutes or until golden brown
  4. Serve with your choice of fruit honey or maple syrup, yoghurt, lemon whatever you like!


Happy birthday to our gorgeous girl!
