Pancakes bring me so much joy no matter what mood I am in. A fewdays ago, I decided to have pancakes for lunch. On a WORK DAY! Yes, I have 1 hour lunch breaks everyday and this pancake batter was so damn easy to rustle up, I think you can also start having pancakes brunch during the work week not gonna lie! 🥰 I hope you try my one-bowl, no fuss, fluffy pancakes that everyone will definitely enjoy and tag us on the gram if you make them #SezPK
Serves: 6 small pancakes - roughly for 2 people so double the recipe if you want larger pancakes to serve for more friends & fam
Difficulty: Level 1
Wow factor: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐
112gr ricotta cheese
1tbsp caster sugar
1 large egg
1 cup of your choice of milk - I used Alpro's light soya milk which has a nice fragrant smell & taste
1/2tsp vanilla extract
112gr plain flour
1/4tsp baking powder
sprinkle of salt
Butter for pan frying the pancakes
A dash of cinnamon
In a large bowl, add your ricotta cheese, sugar, egg, milk and vanilla extract. Beat with a whisk until combined. No need for fancy gadgets here, just use your normal kitchen whisk. It doesn't need to be completely smooth at this point as you will be beating the batter again soon.
Take your sieve and place it on top of your large mixing bowl. Sift in your flour, baking powder and salt. Beat everything together until it is smooth. If it is too sticky, add a splash of milk. Keep going until your batter is at the right consistency. I started off with 1/2 a cup then added another 1/2 to find my right consistency, but if you need more just add more. Don't go overboard though, you definitely don't want the batter to be runny.
Heat your pan over a medium-high heat.
Melt a tiny bit of butter, and use a 1/3cup measurer to drop the batter onto the pan. You can also use the cup measurer to shape the pancake into a perfect circle. Just make sure your cup measurer is made out of steel so it doesn't melt if it accidentally touches the pan!
Cook the pancakes for about 1-2 minutes, flip them once the bottom has turned golden brown, and cook again for another 1-2 minutes. They should fluff up nicely 🤩
Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the remaining batter.
Serve the pancakes immediately with your favourite toppings. I made caramelised bananas and served them on top of the pancakes with a dash of cinnamon, a handful of frozen blueberries, some tiny mint leaves for aesthetic purposes, a drizzle of maple syrup and a bit of peanut butter. Enjoy this cheeky and naughty treat whenever your heart desires!
