Orange ricotta hotcakes
( SERVES 4 )
Once these scrummy hotcakes are cooked stack them with a little piece of baking paper in-between to prevent them from sticking together. And if you have plenty of oranges, be generous and use two in the filling.
|1 tsp||Baking powder|
|½ tsp||Baking soda|
|2 Tbsp||Caster sugar|
|1 Tbsp||Orange zest|
|125 g||Ricotta cheese|
|1 knob||Butter, for cooking|
1. Into a bowl place the flour, baking powder, soda, sugar, zest and ricotta. Add the egg then milk and stir into a batter. A few lumps from the ricotta is fine. Leave to rest for 20 minutes.
2. Melt a little butter in a frying pan. Add ¼ cups of mixture to the pan, cooking for 3 or 4 minutes until just bubbling. Flip and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove and continue with the remaining mixture.
3. To serve, layer the hotcakes with orange pieces and ricotta. Finish with a good drizzle of honey. Extra zest for garnish is optional.
