Pancake Day is almost here – so why not turn the tables with this tip-top alternative topping.

Ricotta, spinach, ham and cherry tomato pancakes

 Servings 4 – Preparation time 20 minutes – cooking time : 30 minutes

200g (7oz) ricotta cheese

 40g (1 and a half oz) mature Cheddar cheese, grated

 100ml (3 & a half fl oz) milk

 2 eggs separated – 100g (3 & a half oz) self-raising flour, sifted

 1 tbsp Olive oil, for frying – 200g (7oz) cherry tomatoes, halved

 100g (3 & a half oz) fresh baby spinach leaves

2 tsps red-wine vinegar – 4 slices good quality ham

 In a bowl, mix the ricotta and Cheddar cheeses, the milk, egg yolks and a pinch of sale.

 Whisk this together to combine everything.

 In a separate blow, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks and firm up without being too stiff.

  • Add the sifted flour to the milk and cheese mixture and mix it together briefly. Fold in the egg whites gently so as not to lose too much air from them.
  • Warm a large non-stick frying pan on a low medium heat.  Wipe a little olive oil around the pan with kitchen paper and ladle enough batter into the pan to form a 12cm circle. If you have room in the pan do these two at a time.
  • Let the pancake sit as it steadily cooks and once the first side is a lovely golden brown, flip it over with a spatula to repeat the process on the other side. Once all the batter is done, you should have 8 pancakes. Keep these warm in a low oven while you prepare the topping.
  • Give the frying pan a quick clean and place it on a medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and tomatoes and colour these for a minute or two.
  • Add the spinach leaves and wilt these down for 1 minute. Season the tomatoes and spinach with a little salt and pepper and add the red wine vinegar to finish.
  • To serve, arrange two pancakes on each plate and top the pancakes with some of the tomato and spinach mixture. Finish by draping a slice of ham on top.
  • Handy hint: Pecorino or Parmesan are good alternatives to Cheddar.

everyone," she says, with this family tale of Christmas praline cookies:

"Since the time Mom had been a little girl, each November Grandma

would surround her back yard pecan tree with sheets to catch the

falling nuts. But most of the nuts had to be knocked from the branches

with her long-handled broom. Then she would spend hours stooped over

those sheets, picking up the pecans and sorting the good ones from the

black and hollow shells.

"When her daughter married and moved away, the nuts were carefully

picked over, packaged and shipped 'up North.' Free time in the first

week of December was always marked for shelling the pecans. Sore hands

and stiff backs were repaid with secret nibbling and promises of

praline cookies for Christmas.

"Soon, I'll start looking for a package from Great-Grandma in South

Carolina. Then, as we crack the pecans, I can retell the 'pecan story'

to Michael and Ann, who know that Santa always looks for pralines on

Christmas Eve."
