 1 cup flour
 1 egg, lightly beaten
 300 ml skim milk
 non-fat cooking spray
 100 g reduced-fat ricotta cheese
 5 dried apricots, chopped
 pinch of salt, to taste


1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in egg and milk with a whisk – check carefully to eliminate any lumps.

2. Lightly spray a large frying pan with cooking oil and heat over medium. Pour in enough batter to just cover the bottom. Cook 1-2 minutes, or until batter sets (look for bubbles to rise to the top).

3. Use a spatula to carefully flip pancake and cook other side to completion, about 30 seconds. Transfer to plate and repeat for 4-6 pancakes.

4. Spread 1 tbs. ricotta on each pancake, sprinkle with chopped apricots. Gently roll each, and you are ready to eat!

Garnish with lemon and powdered sugar for an extra treat.
