About this recipe: Sweet and fluffy ricotta pancakes make for a delicious twist on typical pancakes. The ricotta adds a special tang and extra flavour.


Serves: 12 

  • 275g ricotta cheese
  • 125ml skimmed milk
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil, or as needed

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Place a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat.
  2. Stir together the ricotta, milk and egg yolks till smooth. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir till just combined.
  3. Whisk egg whites in a separate bowl till frothy; fold into the ricotta mixture.
  4. Add about 1 teaspoon of oil to the preheated pan; pour in 4 tablespoons (60ml) of pancake batter for each pancake. Cook till golden brown and bubbles appear at the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook till golden on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining pancake batter, adding more oil as needed.


Adding lemon zest to the pancake batter makes for a delicious addition to these ricotta pancakes. Serve with fresh berries and your favourite syrup.
