Serve these light pancakes with our Chunky Blueberry Sauce, maple syrup or honey. Sprinkling the berries on top of the cooking pancakes ensures even distribution. Keep finished pancakes warm in a 200°F oven, if desired, while cooking the rest.

Blueberry-Ricotta Pancakes Recipe at
Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a small bowl. Whisk ricotta, egg, egg white, buttermilk, lemon zest and juice in a large bowl until smooth. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.

Brush a large nonstick skillet with 1/2 teaspoon oil and place over medium heat until hot. Using a generous 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, pour the batter for 2 pancakes into the pan, sprinkle blueberries on each pancake and cook until the edges are dry and bubbles begin to form, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining oil, batter and berries, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning.

Quite Good, Actually
You can hardly taste or notice the cheese in the texture of the pancake, which is a good thing since additions to pancake batter can make it runny. In this case the opposite occurred, it was very thick, so you might want to add a little water once you have it mixed up. The cooking time was just right to warm and cook through the fresh blueberries. I don't know how frozen fruit would have done. I made a few substitutions; fresh ground whole wheat instead of pastry flour for instance.
