Pancakes are usually the breakfast of choice in our household. Therefor I'm always on the look for new recipes. Last week in one of my cooking books, called Brunch recipes for cozy weekend mornings by Georgeanne Brennan , a book full of great recipes. I found the new favorite pancake recipe, the boys simply loved those.
If pancakes are a regular at your breakfast table, then you should give this recipe a try.
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon or vanilla ( your choice)
4 large eggs separated
2 cups whole milk ricotta
1 1/3 cups milk
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp vegetable oil or melted butter
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In a different mixing bowl whisk together the egg yolks, ricotta, milk and oil.
In a different mixing bowl with electric beaters, beat the egg whites and sugar until stiff.
Add the dry ingredients to the ricotta mixture and combine just until blended. Gently, using a silicon spatula fold the egg whites into the ricotta mixture until incorporated.
Cook the pancakes on an heated oiled griddle or a frying pan. Cook the pancakes for 1 or 2 minutes a side.
Serve with your favorite jam or sirup.
