Pancakes recipe with blackberries and ricotta filling

February26

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1/4 teasponn salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup less 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 eggs

Method:

Place the flour, orange zest and salt in a medium-sized bowl and mix together. In a separate bowl, using a wooden spoon,  mix the milk, water, juice and melted butter.  Separate the eggs and add the yolks only to the wet mixture. Leave the whites aside. Mix well.

Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients whisking vigorouslywith a wooden spoon until the batter is completely smooth. Allow it to rest in the refrigerator for one hour before making into pancakes. Immediately before cooking, beat the egg whites until stiff and gently fold into the batter.

Take a heavy-based frying pan and heat over a low-medium heat. Spray with an even coating of light oil. Using a ladle put one and a half measures of the batter in to the pan and swirl until the bottom of the pan is covered with batter. Cook the pancake for one minute until large bubbles appear and it is slightly moist on top and golden underneath. Loosen the edges of the pancake, slide the spatula under it, and then gently flip it upside down into the pan. Cook for a further minute and transfer the cooked pancake to a plate to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter. If you use sheets of baking paper between the pancakes it will make handling easier. Fill with the berry filling and roll up while tucking one end in to stop leakage.

Filling:

  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries

Method:

Using a small pot and wooden spoon beat the egg into the cheese. Add the icing sugar and then lemon zest and juice and butter. Heat until simmering and continue stirring for 5 minutes. Add the berries and cook for another 3 minute.
