Ricotta Hotcakes

– Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add ricotta mixture and mix until just combined.
– In a clean dry bowl, beat egg whites to form stiff peaks.
– Fold egg whites through batter in two batches with a large metal spoon.
– Lightly grease a large non-stick frying pan with a small portion of butter and drop 2 tbs of batter per hotcake into the pan.
– Cook over low to medium heat for 2 minutes, or until hotcakes have golden undersides. Turn hotcakes and cook on the other side until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and quickly assemble the other ingredients.
– Slice banana lengthways onto a plate, stack three hotcakes on top with a slice of honeycomb butter.
– Dust with icing sugar.

Honey butter

– Soften unsalted butter and stir through 2 tbs honey and crushed honeycomb. Shape into a log on plastic wrap, roll, seal and chill in a refrigerator for 2 hours.

*You can store any leftover honeycomb butter in the freezer.
