  • We cooked these pancakes on a Le Creuset non-stick frying pan. It worked very well.


  • 1 ½ cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 bananas
  • ½ cup golden sugar
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 200 g ricotta

For the topping

  • extra ricotta
  • 1 punnet fresh raspberries
  • 100 g pistachios chopped
  • 4 tsp honey
  • butter for frying


  • To make the pancake batter, in a bowl, mash the banana with a fork. Add the egg yolks, sugar, buttermilk and ricotta. Mix well. Fold in the sifted flour and baking powder to combine.
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form and fold through the banana mixture.
  • Over a medium heat, heat a large non-stick frying pan with a little butter. Once the butter has melted, cook 2 tablespoons of the mixture, in batches, for 2–3 minutes each side or until puffed and golden.
  • Stack 4–5 pancakes on each plate. Top with extra ricotta, raspberries, pistachios and a drizzle of honey.
  • Devour!
