Happy Labour long weekend to all my Melbourne friends!
Oh my Pancakes! I can’t believe it is March already. I am still reporting from our hotel room, we are here for another week then we move into my sister’s spare bedroom for a couple of weeks. The good news is that we are finally moving ahead with our repairs and we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hooray!
I have tried to re-use ingredients to minimise waste, its been working really well. So when I was feeling a little peckish, I scoured the cupboards to see what I had to whip up a quick snack. I found some leftover ricotta in the fridge and decided to try my hand at making ricotta pancakes.
This quick breakfast/snack uses basic pantry staples and you can pretty much add any topping that you might like. It is easy to whip these yummy pancakes up in a bowl with a whisk and a bit of elbow grease but seeing I recently injured my mixing arm (el’ right), the Thermomix was a handy ally in my cooking endeavours.
I had some raspberries, desiccated coconut and chocolate chips handy too, so I threw those in. The pancakes centre is super creamy with that hint of tartness that you get from the raspberries – it makes me think that summer hasn’t truly really left us just yet.
Are you embracing autumn recipes yet or like me, are you still holding on to summer?
