  • In a medium sized bowl beat together 2 large eggs, 2 Tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder, and a pinch of salt. (Hand mixer works great)

  • Heat up 3 Tablespoons of oil in a pan. (I used extra virgin olive oil).
  • With an ice cream spoon, scoop batter and drop to the heated oil.  At first it may seem that the batter is so soft to form but give it a minute. As soon as it starts getting golden brownish on the downside, carefully flip it over. Turn the heat on low and cover for a 1-2 minutes. Take out and finish the rest of batter.

  1. This recipe didn’t turn out for me, couldn’t even flip them without breaking it all apart,had to throw the rest of the batter and wasted ingridients. Followed the recipe exactly and it’s an easy one. Disappointing

    • Sorry to hear that Julia. It always worked for me. I wonder if it depends what kind of ricotta cheese you use. I will look into it and experiment and see if that makes a difference. Thank you for your feedback.
