Beat the eggs together with the sugar. Add the water and the maple syrup. Slowly sieve in the flour and baking powder. Mix well with a whisk and leave to rest for at least 20 minutes. Heat a frying pan and grease with a tiny amount of oil, removing the excess with a paper towel. Pour a little of the mixture into the pan using a ladle and wait until the surface of the pancake is full of bubbles. Then turn it over and cook until it is a light golden color. Repeat the procedure until you have finished the batter, cleaning the frying pan every now and again with a lightly greased piece of paper towel. While you are preparing the pancakes, put the ones that you have already cooked on a baking tray in the oven to keep warm (the oven should be pre-heated and then turned off).
You can serve the pancakes in various ways. Create a stack of pancakes or fold each one in half. Either way, take the ricotta (or gelato if you prefer) and add sugar or honey to taste. Mix to form a smooth cream and then spread on the pancakes. Pour a little Amarena juice on top, and add some Amarenas cut in half. Then layer another pancake on top, or fold the pancake in half and serve.
