These ricotta hotcakes can be made thick and fluffy ready to stack or thinner, which can be easier on a sore mouth. The ingredients can be adjusted depending on your side-effects. You might want to consider adding coconut cream if you have loss of weight or some ginger if you are experiencing nausea. You can top them with yoghurt to give a dry mouth extra moisture when chewing and swallowing.
- ¼ cup of milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup self-raising flour, unbleached
- 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- Toppings of your choice
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Drop the mixture by spoon into a greased frying pan. Turn the hotcake when bubbles appear on the surface and cook a further minute more. Serve immediately.
To make thicker pancakes as pictured, half fill a silicone egg ring with mixture & cook over a low heat until bubbles form on top. Slowly lift the ring to remove it and gently flip the pancake over to cook a further minute.
