    Serves: 12 

    • 275g ricotta cheese
    • 125ml skimmed milk
    • 2 eggs, separated
    • 100g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil, or as needed

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Place a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat.
    2. Stir together the ricotta, milk and egg yolks till smooth. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir till just combined.
    3. Whisk egg whites in a separate bowl till frothy; fold into the ricotta mixture.
    4. Add about 1 teaspoon of oil to the preheated pan; pour in 4 tablespoons (60ml) of pancake batter for each pancake. Cook till golden brown and bubbles appear at the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook till golden on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining pancake batter, adding more oil as needed.


    Adding lemon zest to the pancake batter makes for a delicious addition to these ricotta pancakes. Serve with fresh berries and your favourite syrup.

    These are incredible, I made two batches for my family today. One batch with bacon & maple syrup & one batch with berries & Greek yogurt, they were a huge hit. They were gorgeous & light & fluffy in the middle. Definitely be doing again very soon.  -  02 Apr 2017


    This recipe alone is very bland, if you want yummy flavorful pancakes either add lemon zest and the juice from one lemon plus 2 tbls. sugar, or 1 tsp. Vanilla plus 2 tbls. of sugar. Other than that it's a great base recipe.  -  07 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is my family's favorite pancake recipe! We like it as is, but for a change up you could add a pinch of nutmeg, lemon zest or vanilla. It's great with fresh berries or peaches too. Note: The fluffier you whip the egg whites the fluffier the pancake!  -  25 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
