Ricotta Pancakes

Ricotta Pancakes: Savory Sweet and Satsifying

These pancakes are more work than a traditional pancake, but oh so worth it. They are crispy on the outside with a creamy inside. Serve them with your favorite jam or jelly for a delicious breakfast.


Ricotta Pancakes
Ingredients:
32 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour + more for forming the pancakes
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
canola oil

For Serving:
jam or jelly

Directions:
In a large bowl mix combine the ricotta cheese, egg and vanilla extract, until well mixed. Add in the sugar and mix to incorporate. Add in the flour and baking soda and mix just until everything is combined.

Sprinkle some flour on a work surface. Using a tablespoon or large cookie scoop, scoop out some of the pancake mixture and drop it into the flour. Roll the mixture in the flour and gently flatten into a 1/2 inch thick disc.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet, over medium low heat. When the oil is hot add in some of the pancakes, being careful not to over crowd the pan, you will need room to flip the pancakes. Place the lid on the skillet and fry the pancakes for about 2-3 minutes or until browned. Flip the pancakes, place the lid on the skillet and cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes or until browned. Add another tablespoon of oil if needed before frying more pancakes.

When frying the pancakes you can either form all of the pancakes at once and then fry in batches or you can form just enough for one batch and continue to form more while the one batch cooks.

Enjoy!!!
