This Shrove Tuesday, indulge in these delightful Parma Ham savoury pancakes. Simply spread your homemade pancakes with ricotta cheese and top with rocket leaves, pine nuts, pesto and a slice of Parma Ham.
1 tsp vegetable oil
100g wholemeal plain flour
Salt and cracked black pepper
Butter, to grease
30g pine nuts, toasted
3 tbsp pesto
6 slices Parma Ham
1. Blend together the batter ingredients, then leave to rest for 30 minutes.
2. Heat a large frying pan and add a little butter to grease the base. Pour small ladles of batter into the pan, tilting it to give a thin yet even layer of batter. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the pancake can easily be turned over. Flip the pancake and continue to cook for a further 2-3 minutes until browned. Repeat to use the remaining mixture.
3. Spread a little ricotta over each pancake then top with rocket leaves, pine nuts, pesto and a slice of Parma Ham.
