For me breakfast is the most important meal of the day and plays a big part in my eating regime.  This week, however, because a week of cold weather was impending and because in the UK, and especially here at Leathams we had pancakes on the mind, I decided I needed a change!  Any excuse is a good excuse to cook up a breakfast sensation to beat the humble bowl of milk soaked shredded cereal!

Whilst in the development kitchen on Tuesday morning, I took the opportunity to use some of the liquid egg yolk that was left over from a recent presentation and prepared a delicious ricotta pancake with blueberries and manuka honey. It was a great tasting way to boost the mood on a cold Tuesday morning and start the day on a different tone.  Once that pancake aroma crept into the office, I had a queue of hungry, salivating Leathams employees at the door, eager to get a piece of the pancake action too!

Happy Tuesday!
