Ricotta pancakes are wonderful – fluffy and light with meltingly soft insides. Here they are served with honey and figs for a dessert, but they are also great for breakfast with fresh berries or butter and maple syrup.



  • ricotta 250g tub
  • milk 100ml
  • flour 75g
  • baking powder ½ tsp
  • egg yolks
  • caster sugar  1 tbsp  
  • vanilla extract a few drops 
  • egg whites  2, whisked to stiff peaks
  • butter
  • figs 4 ripe, sliced or quartered to serve
  • honey drizzled over, to serve


  • Step 1

    Whizz the ricotta in a food processor with the milk, flour, baking powder, egg yolks, sugar and a few drops of vanilla extract to make a smooth batter.

  • Step 2

    Gently fold the egg whites into the batter. Melt a little butter in a non-stick frying pan, drop in spoonfuls of batter and cook in batches, about 4 at a time, until golden. Turn and cook the other side. Serve with figs and honey.
