Ricotta Pancakes: Adapted from Nigella Lawson's Ricotta Hotcakes in How to be a Domestic Goddess
- 9 ounces ricotta cheese (1 cup + 2 tbsp)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 whole eggs (separated)
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and extra for sprinkling (my addition- If you're having these with maple syrup then omit this)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (my addition)
- Strawberries (optional)
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the ricotta mix and stir to combine.
Beat the egg whites till it forms peaks and then fold into the ricotta mix.
Heat a non-stick griddle and drop heaped tablespoons (or whatever size you wish) to the pan and cook on each side for approx 1 minute.
Sprinkle the pancakes with powdered sugar and serve with strawberries.
