Start the day with these delicious, easy to make ricotta pancakes. They’re like a bit of cheesecake in a pancake and they just happen to be egg-free too.
Seeing as it’s pancake day next week I thought it would be very remiss of me not to share a pancake recipe. The question was what? I exhausted my selection of “regular” pancakes last year when I shared my Pancake Day Pancakes (the thin ones you smother in lemon juice and sugar) and American-style pancakes, as well as messing around with some farmyard animals and a pancakey Mickey Mouse.
This year I decided to make something a little different and settled on these yummy ricotta pancakes. They’re really delicious, with a hint of cheesecake about them, and they just happen to be egg-free so perfect for anyone avoiding egg to still join in next Tuesday (although these aren’t just for pancake day, they’re good all year round 🙂 ).
Active Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes
Makes 4 pancakes (These are quite filling so I’m happy to eat 1 topped with some fruit but people with large appetites may want 2)
- 250g ricotta
- 65g plain flour
- 35g caster sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix together until fully combined.
- Divide the mixture into 4 and roll into balls. Pat the balls flat so that they’re about 1cm thick.
- Heat a large frying pan on a medium heat (I use a non-stick pan so don’t use any oil, but if you don’t have a non-stick pan you may want to use a little vegetable oil to stop the pancakes sticking). Once hot add the pancakes and cook for about 4 minutes until browned on one side .
- Flip the pancakes over and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until browned and warm all the way through.
- Serve with fresh fruit and drizzled in maple syrup.
