Anzac pancakes with fruit topping

20 minutes (20 minutes)
Serves 4 (3 per serve)
  • 300g fresh ricotta
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut essence
  • ¾ cup wholemeal plain flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup quick oats
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons crumbed walnuts
Fruit topping
  • 375g fresh plums, cut into wedges
  • 125g punnet fresh raspberries
  • 125g punnet fresh blackberries
  • 2 tablespoon golden syrup
  1. To make fruit topping, place all ingredients in a bowl. Gently stir to coat fruit in golden syrup. Set aside while making pancakes (standing time allows juices to release from fruit).
  2. Set aside 150g ricotta in fridge for serving. Place remaining 150g ricotta in a medium bowl with egg yolks and golden syrup. Whisk to combine, then whisk in buttermilk and essence.
  3. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Return any husks remaining in sieve to the bowl. Add oats. Make well in centre. Add ricotta mixture. Whisk to form a smooth, thick batter.
  4. Using a clean wire, whisk or hand -held electric mixer, beat egg whites in a small bowl until soft peaks form. Fold into batter.
  5. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Lightly grease with cooking oil. Spoon 2 heaped tablespoons of batter into pan to make an 8cm pancake. Repeat to make 2 more pancakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until browned underneath. Turn pancakes and cook for a further 2 minutes, until other side is browned. Remove. Cover with foil to keep warm. Continue with remaining batter, re-greasing pan with a little cooking spray between batches, to make 12 pancakes altogether.
  6. To serve, arrange pancakes in stacks of 3. Top with reserved ricotta, fruit topping and walnuts.

Tips

  • Replace golden syrup with honey or maple syrup, if preferred.
  • Coconut essence is available from the baking aisle in supermarkets.
  • Replace raspberries, blackberries and plums with any combination of seasonal fresh fruit. Try strawberries, blueberries and figs.
