Ricotta hot cakes

 

250 grams ricotta cheese (the cows milk one i find the best)

125 ml of milk

2 large eggs (separated)

100 grams plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

oil for the pan

 

METHOD

Put the ricotta, milk and egg yolks into a bowl and mix well Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk to make a smooth batter Beat the egg whites until they become fluffy and then fold them into the ricotta mixture Heat the oil in a large frying pan and drop in heaped dessertspoons ( for the firefighters i had to use a way bigger spoon of batter, they are big beasts to keep fed) Cook the pancakes for about 1 minute until golden and then flip them over and cook for another minute Keep the cooked pancakes warm and then serve them with your baked spiced plums, job done ....
