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. You 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. It 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
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
25g unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 lemon juiced
Oil spray, to fry
- Caramelised bananas (recipe below)
- Almonds, roughly chopped
- Maple syrup
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Set aside
- 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.
- 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.
- Serve with caramelised bananas, strawberries, blueberries, chopped almonds and a generous drizzling of maple syrup.
- 30g butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 bananas, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds
- 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.
