Ricotta and Tomato Savoury Layer Cake

Ebi-kun and I made this the other day and it is delicious.
For the pancakes you need:
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
2tsp of pesto (we used green pesto)

Beat all the ingredients together to make a batter, ladle a spoonful of batter into a hot frying pan/griddle, when the top appears to be dry flip over and cook for a couple minutes more until golden brown, put on one side. Continue until you used up all the batter, should make 6 pancakes.

For the filling
large tub of ricotta cheese (we made our own)
4 medium tomatoes, de-seeded and chopped
handful of chopped chives (out of the garden)
pine nuts 150g
salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything together in a bowl. Then make the sandwich with a pancake followed by a layer of ricotta mix, continue until it is all used up. Pop in the fridge for and hour to set then you should be able to cut it easily like a cake. Serve with salad and a baked potato. It is actually more filling than it looks, the above amount will serve 4-6 adults.
