    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Quick to make; quick to be devoured! A simple and delicious recipe I found in the June 2002 isue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine. 10 minutes preparation time; 10 minutes chilling time; 10 minutes cooking time and undoubtedly less than 10 minutes devouring time! Next time I make these, I'm planning to gently fold in 1/4 cup slivered almonds, or perhaps some ground almonds, before chilling the mixture. Before making this recipe, Sharon123 contacted me to ask me about the amount of flour needed: an ingredient but NOT listed in the ingredients. APOLOGIES! I made these some months ago, then posted the recipe for safekeeping but right now I'm not sure where the magazine is! And I cannot remember what the quantity was! When I find the magazine during my annual tidy up, now in progress, I'll submit the amount. Meanwhile, please be guided by the amount that worked for Sharon123!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place the the ricotta, egg, flour, sugar and lemon zest in a medium-sized bowl and, using a hand-held whisk or an electric beater, whisk until almost smooth. Cover and place in the fridge for 10 minutes to chill.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a medium pan, preferably non-stick, over a medium heat, and spoon tablespoons of the mixture into the hot oil; cook, turning often, for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel, and repeat with the remaining mixture.
    3. 3
      Divide the fritters among the serving plates, drizzle with honey and serve immediately.

      Mmmm thanks Bluemoon! I had these for dessert with the last of my riesling ( glass, not bottle - come on! ) and they are delicious little fluffy pikelets of ricotta. I think your idea of adding nuts is good, I reckon they'd be better with a texture contrast. The only other change I could make would be to reduce or skip the sugar and just use honey to sweeten. Overall, a cheap foolproof dessert/breakfast that everyone will like!

      This turned out very very tasty! I added about 3 tbls. of flour to hold the fritters together. It was nice and light, lovely drizzled with the honey! Thanks!
