Chef's Tip

If you’ve never flipped a pancake before, here’s a helpful visual trick: look for bubbles to appear and wait for the perimeter to form a distinct, slightly firm edge before making that first flip. Also, while working in batches, your pan can become too hot, so adjust the heat and cook time as needed.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Make the pancake batter

In a medium bowl, stir together the pancake mix, coconut milk, and at least half or up to all the maple syrup (see headnote) until just combined (save any remaining syrup for serving). Let stand while you prepare the slaw ingredients.

2

Prep the slaw ingredients

  • Zest and juice the lemon. Set aside the zest for the ricotta topping. [Zest both lemons and juice 1 lemon. Save the remaining zested lemon for another use.]
  • Trim the ends from the celery. Thinly slice the celery on the diagonal.
  • Thinly slice the snap peas crosswise on the diagonal.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Measure half the blueberries and cut them in half; save the remaining blueberries for another use.

3

Cook the pancakes

  • Stir the peas into the pancake batter.
In a large frying pan over medium-low heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, pour in the batter to form 4- to 5-inch-wide pancakes. Cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with a clean kitchen towel to keep warm. Add more butter or oil between batches if needed.
While the pancakes cook, prepare the ricotta topping and assemble the slaw.

4

Make the ricotta topping; finish the slaw

In a small bowl, stir together the ricotta and lemon zest; season lightly with salt and generously with pepper.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil. Add the celery, snap peas, scallions, and halved blueberries and stir to combine; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pancakes to individual plates and add a dollop of the ricotta topping. Serve the blueberry slaw and any remaining maple syrup, if desired, on the side.
