  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 120°C / 250°F / Gas Mark ½.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

  • Step 3

    In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg yolks, sugar, ricotta and lemon zest. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended; there may be a few lumps.

  • Step 4

    In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, carefully fold the egg whites into the batter until just blended.

  • Step 5

    Place a large griddle or frying pan over a medium heat until hot enough for a drop of water to sizzle and immediately evaporate.

  • Step 6

    Brush the griddle or pan with some of the melted butter. Put one ladleful of the batter into the hot pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until small bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, the edges start to look dry and the bottoms golden brown, about 4 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Carefully turn the pancake over and cook until lightly browned on the other side, about 1½ minutes.

  • Step 8

    Transfer to an ovenproof platter and place in the oven to keep warm. Do not cover or your pancakes will get soggy! Repeat with the remaining butter and batter to make about 16 pancakes.

  • Step 9

    Serve with the raspberries, and sprinkled with sugar, if desired.
