Why I Love This Recipe

Homemade pancake recipe to die for. Having the reputation that they do, I thought that it was probably about time to try making these myself since I'd probably never get the chance to taste them at his cafe...

The verdict? Not the easiest breakfast around, but very delicious!

Ingredients You'll Need

For the honeycomb butter
250g/8¾oz unsalted butter, softened
100g/3½oz sugar honeycomb, crushed with a rolling pin (you can use a Crunchie bar for this)
2 tbsp honey
For the hotcakes:
225g/8oz ricotta
170ml/6fl oz milk
4 eggs, separated
140g/5oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch salt
50g/1½oz butter
To serve:
banana or strawberries
icing sugar for dusting


Make the honeycomb butter first. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Shape into a log on clingfilm, roll, seal and chill in a refrigerator for two hours.

Place ricotta, milk and egg yolks in a mixing bowl and mix to combine. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add to the ricotta mixture and mix until just combined.

Place egg whites in a clean dry bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites through batter in two batches, with a large metal spoon.

Lightly grease a large non-stick frying pan with a small portion of the butter and drop two tablespoons of batter per hotcake into the pan (don’t cook more than three per batch).

Cook over low to medium heat for two minutes, or until hotcakes have golden undersides. Turn hotcakes and cook on the other side until golden and cooked through.

Transfer to a plate and quickly assemble with other ingredients.

Slice one banana lengthways onto a plate, stack three hotcakes on top with a slice of honeycomb butter. Dust with icing sugar. You can use strawberries in place of the banana

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Making them as we speak--Honeycomb butter tastes amazing, but 100g of honeycomb is a hell of a lot of honeycomb--it weighs nothing!!!!

These sound great. I've been looking for a ricotta pancake recipe. Thanks for the posting.
