Ricotta Pancakes

Ricotta Pancakes are an elegant take on traditional breakfast pancakes. They’re also a great way to use leftover ricotta. The mildly sweetened, creamy cheese is used to replace a large portion of flour in the traditional pancake recipe, creating a texture that’s crispy, creamy and fluffy. To perfect these ricotta pancakes, make sure to maintain a consistent medium-low heat on your skillet/griddle, ensuring that the pancakes cook evenly and don’t burn on the outside before they’re fully cooked inside. The pancakes are delicious with maple syrup but they really shine with blueberry sauce. Add a little lemon zest or almond extract to your batter as a variation. The breakfast just got even better!
