Ricotta pancakes with honey butter

I posted this photo on Instagram a few weeks ago… and then got some requests to share the recipe. So here it is! These fluffy ricotta pancakes are sooooo yummy. We make them nearly every weekend these days… (*Update! The recipe comes from Bill Granger’s restaurant in Sydney where apparently his ricotta hotcakes are more famous than the Australian sunshine itself!)

Ricotta Pancakes with Honey Butter:

  • 1 1/3 cups of ricotta
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 50 g of butter

Place ricotta, milk and egg yolks in a mixing bowl and mix to combine. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a separate bowl and then add to the ricotta mixture and mix until just combined.  Place egg whites in a clean dry bowl and beat until stiff peaks form (usually around 3-5 minutes). Fold egg whites through the batter in two batches with a large metal spoon. Make pancakes! Top the pancakes with sliced banana and honeybutter (honey and butter mixed together to form a syrupy-like butter). Sprinkle icing sugar on top… for a little bit of extra yum!

We make these pancakes often too (after getting the recipe from Courtney), and they’re REALLY REALLY good!!! Just thinking of them makes my mouth water! xxx

Yum! This is Bill’s recipe, right? I used to eat these far too often when we lived in Sydney eons ago (though I think he used honeycomb instead of honey in the butter, which is yummy too).

Yes! This must be from Bill’s restaurant in Sydney. An australian friend printed this recipe out and gave it to me years ago. (And yes, the recipe calls for honeycomb… but we always just mix honey with butter and skip the honeycomb bit.) I couldn’t remember where the recipe came from… so I wasn’t able to credit the source. I will add this to the post! Thank you.
