Ricotta Hotcakes


Ricotta Hotcakes

Make the ultimate breakfast in bed with That's Amore Buffalo Ricotta. This award-winning buffalo ricotta is a traditional whey cheese that is made from buffalo milk. Buffalo ricotta is smoother and creamier than cow’s milk ricotta and is great for incorporating into gourmet pasta dishes, your favourite desserts or simply spread on bread. We've added lashings of Dorset Maple Reserve Pure Amber Syrup from Vermont to crown the ultimate stack!
