Ricotta Cheese Pancakes

Makes about 20 pancakes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Oil for griddle
  • Summer fruits such as bananas and berries
  • Maple syrup


Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, ricotta, milk, cream, egg, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Stir liquid ingredients into dry ingredients. Batter should be lumpy. Do not over mix.

Heat a heavy griddle to medium high. Coat lightly with canola oil. Place scant 1/2 cup batter onto griddle and cook until bubbles begin to appear.

Flip and cook cakes until lightly browned.

Serve cakes with fruits and maple syrup.
