Sartori Merlot Bellavitano Pancake with Blueberries and Almond Slivers

IMG_20130617_193037_520The Lady was exhausted when she returned from the cheese mines yesterday… so she wanted something delish and easy to prepare.

The great folks at Sartori had recently sent several wedges of their sublime cheeses and I suggested she build one of those fabulous David Eyre Pancakes around the wedge of Merlot Bellavitano we had.

Here’s what she did:


6 ounces of Merlot Bellavitano, shredded

1/4 stick butter

Dollop EVOO

4 eggs

1 cup flour

1 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup fresh blueberries

Handful almond slivers


Pre-heat oven to 425.

Pre-heat cast iron skillet in oven. Add and melt butter to pan. Add EVOO to pan. Heat but don’t allow to smoke.

Mix eggs, flour, milk and salt in bowl.

Fold in blueberries and half of the cheese to the mixture.

Pour into pre-heated skillet.

Top with almonds.

Bake for 15 minutes until puffy and golden brown.

When you take from oven, top with remainder of cheese.

Cut into four slices and serve with maple syrup or your favorite jam.

Inspired by the recipe of David Eyre which you can review by clicking here.
