Ricotta Pancakes

Serves 4-6

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 5 mins

For the Pancakes:
2/3 of a cup of All Purpose Flour
1 cups of Ricotta Cheese
2 Tbsp of Whole Milk
4 Eggs, separated
3 Tbsp of Sugar
Zest of 1 Small Lemon
tsp of Vanilla Extract
tsp of Salt
tsp of Baking Powder

For the Blueberries,
1 pint of Fresh Blueberries, washed
About 2 Tbsp (or more depending on the sweetness of the berries) of Granulated Sugar
Juice of Half of a Small Lemon (the one we zested)
Few Fresh Leaves of Mint


1) In a bowl, toss the blueberries with the sugar, lemon juice and mint leaves and set aside.

2) In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a handheld held electric mixer until the egg whites develop stiff peeks.

3) In another bowl, whisk together the ricotta, egg yolks, milk, sugar, lemon zest and vanilla with the same mixer so that you have a nice creamy mixture.

4) Add the flour, salt and baking powder to the ricotta mixture and mix It in to combine well.

5) Fold in the whipped egg whites very gently and set aside for a few minutes while you preheat your griddle.

6) Preheat a griddle over medium heat, brush with some butter and ladle cup of the batter for each pancake onto the hot griddle.

7) Allow them to cook for a couple minutes on each side or until deeply golden.

8) Place onto a plate and spoon over the blueberry syrup.
