I battled to find ricotta for these ricotta hotcakes and I wish I had bought more when I found it. These were amazing and Dave and I devoured two each without hesitating. He had his served with crispy bacon and maple syrup, and I used my pear and lemon butter.
In my constant attempt to save water I am trying to do less loads of laundry per week. My old washing machine determined the weight of the load and worked out how long to run a cycle for. So for white laundry, which is less than a full load, it would not run a lengthy cycle. It also had a full capacity 30 minute option. For less soiled items such as towels, this was great. My new washing machine works best on full loads. The eco cycle choices are between 15 minutes and 30 minutes, but you cannot fill the machine up for those. The normal cycle is over 2 hours long and the water consumption per load is probably around 42 litres. That amounts to a quarter of our daily allowance. In order to reduce the number of cycles we do per week I have made a few changes.
You would expect these ricotta hotcakes to be white. But my friend is farming eggs and as her chickens roam free they eat all sorts of healthy things. What they eat determines the colour of the yolk. And at present they are bright yellow.
