How to make it

  • First make the honeycomb butter. I usually do this ahead of time. Put the butter, honeycomb and honey in a liquidizer and blend until smooth. Shape into a log on plastic wrap, roll, seal and chill in a refrigerator for 2 hours. (Store leftover honeycomb butter in the freezer – it’s great on toast.)
  • Place ricotta, milk and egg yolks in a mixing bowl and mix to combine.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add to the ricotta mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Place egg whites in a clean dry bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites through batter with a large metal spoon.
  • Lightly grease a large non-stick frying pan with a small portion of the butter and drop 2 tablespoons of batter into the pan (don’t cook more than 3 per batch). Cook over a 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. Keep them warm while cooking in a very low oven.
  • Transfer to a plate and quickly assemble other ingredients.
  • Note – hotcake batter can be stored for up to 24 hours, covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
  • To serve, peel and slice the bananas and heat through with some of the honeycomb butter for a minute. Put the hotcakes on to warmed plates and spoon the bananas on top.
  • Dust with powered sugar (optional)

    I've never heard of sugar honeycomb or honeycomb butter. Where do you find these at? Are they at regular food stores or where?
