    1. Mix 2 tablespoons lemon juice and cornflour together in a bowl until cornflour dissolves.
    2. Stir blueberries and 3 tablespoons sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour cornflour mixture into blueberry mixture; cook and stir until mixture thickens slightly. Cover saucepan and remove from heat.
    3. Whisk ricotta cheese, milk, eggs, sugar, juice from 1 lemon, lemon zest, nutmeg and salt together in a bowl until well blended. Add flour and baking powder; whisk to combine.
    4. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Drop batter in 4 tablespoon (60ml) portions onto the hot pan and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry. Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
