THIS. IS. DA. BOMB. Its crisp exterior glazed with homemade dehydrated blueberry sugar belies its thick, cushiony texture inside that veers toward an actual cake. Its plush crumb, studded and stained with blueberries and their juice, is moist and somehow manages to be dense yet fluffy simultaneously.

Seeing the generous litter of fresh berries and pine nuts across the top of the hotcake made me very, very happy – I love pine nuts. And to cap it all off, that scoop of ricotta, mascarpone and cream cheese is just gorgeous when smeared on the hotcake.
