  • 250g/9oz ricotta cheese
  • 5 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 3 Large eggs, separated
  • Finely grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 55g/2oz plain flour
  • Warmed cherry or blueberry conserve to serve


    1. Place the ricotta cheese, sugar and egg yolks in a large bowl and mix together. Stir in the lemon rind and melted butter. Sift in the flour and fold in. Place the egg whites in a separate bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the ricotta mixture.

OMG these are amazing, so light and fluffy, I cheekily served mine with syrup. I wasnt patient enough on my first batch when flipping and caused a frying pan mess, but once I waited for one side to cook through to the surface before flipping, I got them spot on. I've popped my excess mix in the fridge until morning, so I can have some more.
