Ricotta Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas and Fresh Berries

This is a quick blog post on how to make some delicious ricotta pancakes.  These photos were just going to be for Instagram, but I decided that I like them too much and need to be featured on Beyond Our Sky. 2-3You can serve them with whatever you like. I chose caramelised bananas, strawberries and blueberries, chopped almonds and maple syrup of course (because obviously). So it’s definitely verging more towards a dessert rather than breakfast. 2-16.jpgIt has definitely become a staple in our house; it’s just that good and so easy to make. I’m sorry for the lack of photos, like I said – I had not intention of actually making a blog post. So that’s basically it for today. Very short and sweet. I hope you had a great week!


Ricotta Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas and Fresh Berries

Ricotta Pancakes
Adapted from Taste.

  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons (40g) caster sugar
  • 125g fresh ricotta
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 1 egg
  • 25g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • Oil spray, to fry
  • Caramelised bananas (recipe below)
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Almonds, roughly chopped
  • Maple syrup
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Set aside
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the ricotta, milk, egg, melted butter, lemon juice and vanilla until smooth. Gradually whisk this into the dry ingredients to form a smooth batter, ensuring not to over mix.
  3. Heat a large heavy based, non-stick frying pan, spray lightly with oil and pour in 3-4 tablespoons batter to form a 10cm pancake. Cook pancakes over medium heat for 3 minutes until bubbles appear over the surface, then flip over and cook for 1-2 minutes. Continue with remaining batter.
  4. Serve with caramelised bananas, strawberries, blueberries, chopped almonds and a generous drizzling of maple syrup.

Caramelised Bananas 

  • 30g butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 bananas, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds
  1. In a small fry pan, melt together the butter and sugar over medium heat. Add in the sliced bananas, and continue to cook until softened and caramelised; about 5 minutes.
