Ricotta Pancakes

Darkling, this one is for you!

3/4 plain flour. 1 teaspoon baking powder. 1 1/2 teaspoons caster sugar. 2 eggs, separated. 1/2 cup (100g) fresh ricotta. 1 1/2 tablespoons honey. 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind. 1/2 cup milk. I'm all for adding a handful of frozen berries if you happen to have some in the freezer, and a pinch or two of cinnamon.

Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.
Gently fold your egg whites through.

Fry 'em up in some nice hot butter, and serve with whatever takes you fancy. So far we have topped them with: caramelised strawberries and banana, chunks of honeycomb, lemon, golden syrup, leftover ricotta-- the usual sweet pancake friends. Yummy, and fluffy. Small amount of faffing about whisking the whites, but well worth it!
