    About this recipe: Sweet and fluffy ricotta pancakes make for a delicious twist on typical pancakes. The ricotta adds a special tang and extra flavour.

    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.

    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)


    Such a nice change from my regular pancake recipe. The ricotta adds a really nice texture, and i LOVE the fact that there is no butter, oil or sugar in the batter. My husband always tops his pancakes with butter, but said these pancakes don't need any! Will be making these again.  -  30 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
