To Cook (Serves 4, 48 mins)

  • 1 & 1/3 cups ricotta
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 50g of butter
  • Combine ricotta, milk and egg yolks in a bowl (mix well).
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt until just combined.
  • Beat eggs white in another bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Combine flour mix and ricotta mix.
  • Fold in egg white into batter in two separate lots.
  • Heat some butter in the pan and place 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan.
  • Cook until the top of the mix starts to bubble and flip over gently.
  • Serve with your favourite pancake sides.


  • Makes 8 to 9 hotcakes depending on size. I cook 1 per batch and 1/4 cup gets you one the size of a CD/DVD in diameter. Great for a special occasion or just a special sunday breakie!
