19 Dec 2017

WATCH: Video of how we created these yummy pancake recipes.

Turn heads (and taste buds) with a special take on this camping staple… pancakes perfect for breakfast or a holiday treat.

Ricotta and buttermilk pancakes


Makes approx 20 

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 3 tsps baking powder
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup soft ricotta
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 70g butter, melted


Place the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Whisk together.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, ricotta, buttermilk and butter 
then lightly mix through the flour until the batter is smooth. The mixture 
should be the consistency of thick cream, adjust with a splash of milk if required.
Leave the batter to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes. This will give you 
a lighter pancake.
Cook small amounts of the batter in a lightly greased non-stick fry pan over medium heat.
Allow to cook until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip using a spatula. 
Serve warm with your favourite toppings.
