I'm not a breakfast eater until I've been awake at least 3-4 hours.
However, these ricotta pancakes by Donna Hay could coax me to "nibble a little something" a little before then.
You'll find the recipe on her dot com along with other tasty treats.
Here's the recipe:
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup super-fine sugar
4 eggs (separated)
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
7 ounces ricotta cheese
Whisk egg whites & set aside.
Mix flour, sugar, egg yolks, milk, extract. Gently fold in egg whites and the ricotta. Cook 2 Tablespoons of mixture on non-stick skillet on low heat 3-4 minutes or until puffed and golden. Top with maple syrup. Garnish with lemon wedges.
To make optional maple butter, mix 5-6 Tablespoons of softened butter (or margarine) with 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup.
Let me know if you make these & how they turn out!
