As much as I wanted to include the honeycomb butter, I couldn't find the title ingredient, so just went with a simple honey butter! I wanted fresh fruit for the topping, & the best I could do right now was to use blueberries, which really worked for us! ABSOLUTELY GREAT! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
A seriously delicious recipe that I've added to my weekend brunch recipe book. I scaled this back for two and we thoroughly enjoyed these with fresh raspberries and the honeycomb butter - WOW! - and the contrast between the tartness of the raspberries and the sweetness of the honeycomb butter was fabulous: something we were still talking about a couple of days after we had enjoyed these, in anticipation of my making them again - SOON! For us the honey butter WAS an essential element of our enjoying these so much. I used low fat ricotta and low-fat milk and the hotcakes themselves were also delicious. Thank you for sharing another recipe that deserves to reach dizzying heights of super-stardom. I wouldn't want to change a thing and I'm looking forward to also making these for friends. Made for PRMR.
Made these for breakfast this morning and my DH and I really enjoyed them!!! 16 yo DS wasn't a big fan of them, I think because these are not a sweetened hotcake, which is why I loved them. DH and I enjoyed it with fresh strawberries and whipped topping and DS with maple syrup. Thanks for sharing Noo. Made for new zaar tag!!
