Make this pancake day special with these ricotta and orange pancakes with a golden sultana compote.
I really need no excuse to make pancakes I love them and make them often. So when Shrove Tuesday comes around each year I like to use it as a chance to experiment with pancake variations. I love the thinner crepe style pancakes and think if I had to pick an ultimate I would probably go for those with lemon or orange, pretty standard. However ricotta pancakes come in a close second. I use Nigel Slaters ricotta pancake recipe and just adapt it to what I fancy.
Ricotta pancakes are fluffy and creamy, I really love the texture of them. They work so well with orange zest or orange blossom water added to the batter. I served them up with a mound of honey coloured golden sultana compote, which is very easy to make and a dollop of natural yogurt. Whats your favourite type of pancake and topping?
