Orange & Ricotta Pancakes

At Bedfolk HQ we love nothing better than slow weekend mornings followed by a delicious brunch. So we've teamed up with Tina Jui, cook, writer and photographer at The Worktop, to bring you some of our favourite recipes. 

Tina Jui | The WorktopThese orange and ricotta pancakes are so soft and light, with a boost of citrus to brighten your morning.

When it comes to eating them (the best bit), Tina recommends pouring on the orange syrup and letting it sit for a minute or two, to really seep into the pancakes.
