Treat yourself to a breakfast of champions with this delicious ricotta and apple pancake recipe flavoured with cinnamon. Featuring the perfect flavour combination of cinnamon and delicious griddled Pink Lady® apple slices, this recipe is guaranteed to please!
How to Griddle Apples
To achieve the perfect griddled apple result, cut your Pink Lady® apples into wedges, cover in lemon juice and griddle them on a high heat. If you don’t have a griddle pan, you can use a non-stick pan, however you just might not achieve the lovely griddled texture.
Should You Put Cinnamon in Pancakes?
Yes. This recipe is evidence that you absolutely should put cinnamon in pancakes. Cinnamon provides a delicious hit of spice that works so well with these soft and fluffy ricotta and apple pancakes.
Why Do Ricotta, Apples And Cinnamon Taste So Good Together?
Apples and cinnamon are a perfect flavour combination for so many things. Whether it’s for a traditional apple pie dessert or as a delicious topping for some morning pancakes, the two flavours complement each other very well. Cinnamon brings a slight spice that balances extremely well with the sweetness of apples, especially Pink Lady® apples. Add in a really light cheese such as ricotta to balance the apples and cinnamon and you really can't go wrong.
Can You Freeze These Ricotta Pancakes?
Ricotta pancakes are best enjoyed fresh, but you can freeze these and reheat them easily.
Heat a griddle pan on a high heat.
Half the apples and remove the core. Cut into wedges and cover in lemon juice.
Place your apple wedges onto the griddle pan and cook until you have griddle marks and the apples are soften slightly.
Sieve the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl.
Add the egg yolks and ricotta to your mixing bowl and begin to stir while adding the milk.
Next, whisk the egg whites until you have soft peaks.
Fold the egg whites into the ricotta mix until fully combined.
Heat a non-stick frying pan on a medium/high heat and add a knob of butter.
Ladle some of the mix into the pan and cook until golden brown on one side and flip.
Serve with your griddled apples, yogurt and honey!
