For 12 homemade pancakes:
150g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 x 250g tub Ricotta cheese
2 ripe conference pears
12 slices Parma Ham
Maple syrup, to drizzle

150ml (5 fl oz) milk
2 tbsp melted butter
A few drops of vegetable oil, to grease
First make the pancakes. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a mixing bowl. Add the egg, milk and melted butter, and whisk together. Leave to stand for 15 minutes.
Place a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter to coat the surface of the pan. Drop tablespoons of the pancake batter into the pan and flip over after a couple of minutes, when tiny bubbles start to appear on the batter surface. Leave the pancakes over the heat for a further 1-2 minutes, until both sides are golden brown. Repeat this process until you have 12 medium-sized pancakes.
Layer the pancakes on to six serving plates with ricotta cheese, sliced pear and Parma Ham. Finish with a final slice of Parma Ham and a generous drizzle of Maple syrup.
Cook’s tip: Why not experiment with different combinations of filling for your morning pancakes, try peaches or mango, or even drizzle with runny honey instead of Maple syrup. You can always buy Scotch pancakes to save time, don’t worry – we won’t tell!
