Who said lemon and sugar was just for pancakes?

Did you know that when gnocchi was first developed around fifteenth century, it was common to add a bit of sugar and cinnamon to the dough or as a topping? So that got us thinking... does gnocchi have to be strictly savoury?

With pancake day around the corner, we were inspired to get into the kitchen and start experimenting with sweet gnocchi. Spoiler: it 100% works.

A spoonful of sugar helps the gnocchi go down

This is a great recipe for people who are bored of pancakes; those who already had pancakes for breakfast but want to keep up the festivities into the evening; plus anyone who is up for something quirky, fun and yummy!

Lemon and Sugar Gnocchi


Serves 4 as a sweet treat or 2 for a cheeky lunch

1 tsp butter

1 pack Sunny & Luna Cauliflower Gnocchi

Juice of half a lemon

1 tsp sugar

Non è un problema

  • You can never have too much lemon and sugar so be generous with the lemon and sugar - no rules today!


  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat.

  2. Add the gnocchi to the pan and toss to coat in the butter, then cook for 3-5 minutes until lightly golden.

  3. Turn the heat down to low, squeeze in the lemon juice and sprinkle over the sugar. Stir to combine and serve. Semplicemente perfetta.
