Discover the secret to the fluffiest pancakes

If you love a stack of pancakes (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), you’ll go crazy for these ricotta hotcakes.


Adding Woolworths’ new smooth ricotta to the batter makes for the lightest, most airy pancakes imaginable. Part of Woolworths’ fresh cheese range – which also includes mild and milky fior di latte mozzarella, bite-size bocconcini and traditional ricotta, made the Italian way – Woolworths’ new smooth ricotta has a slightly dry texture, which makes it a great addition to baked goods such as cheesecake and pancakes, not to mention savoury dishes like scrambled eggs and omelettes.

Serving suggestion

Mix 4 free-range egg yolks, ¾ cup buttermilk and 1 t vanilla paste. Fold through 225 g sifted self-raising flour, 1 t salt and 110 g caster sugar. Whisk 4 free-range egg whites until stiff peaks form and fold through the batter with 250 g smooth or traditional ricotta. Heat a lightly greased, non-stick pan over a low heat. Cook 2 T mixture, in batches, for 3–4 minutes on each side or until golden. Drizzle with maple butter and serve with blueberries.
