I was a little suspicious that these were not only for my benefit...they are Mark's absolute favourite!
So, butter was mixed with crushed violet crumble (we adjust a little from Bill's).
4 egg whites were beaten until stiff peaks were formed.
They were then folded through a mixture of 1 1/3 cups ricotta, 3/4 cup milk and 4 eggs yolks, mixed with 1 cup sifted flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt.
Fold this through with a metal spoon (not that I think Mark does this), and you're supposed to do it in 2 batches.
Cook on a lightly greased frypan over low heat for 2 mins or until they have a lightly golden underside.
