Berry Compote: In bowl, combine strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, sugar and lemon juice. Set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Press ricotta through fine sieve into separate bowl. Whisk in egg, milk, butter and lemon rind. Pour over dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
