This recipe makes the best pancakes ever! They are soooo moist and the ricotta gives them such a smooth texture. I make extra and pop them in the toaster oven for a quick breakfast on a weekday morning. They reheat wonderfully. For a variation, I have used lemon (juice and peel) and added blueberries at my husband's request. Yummy! My mouth is watering as I write.
What a wonderful breakfast treat. Loved them so much that 2 of us ate the entire batch! I used the zest of the entire orange for more flavor. Also can substitute orange juice for the milk and they are even tastier. Can't wait to make again!
OMG! These were so unbelievably delicious! There is nothing I would change. They were delicate and light and I couldn't stop eating. I mixed maple syrup with a little Triple Sec.
Excellent pancake recipe! Husband doesn't want any other kind. If have time, sometimes I will use two eggs, separate them and mix yolks in as directed, and beat the whites to still peaks then fold into batter after everything is combined. Yum!
Great pancakes. For a more orange taste, I added a couple of tablespoons of frozen concentrated orange juice or make a simple homemade orange syrup to go with the original recipe
1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1/3 cup cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter
In small saucepan, combine the orange juice concentrate, sugar, and butter. Warm the mixture up on low heat and stir continuously until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and cool. Store in refrigerator. Warm before use. Use syrup to drizzle over pancakes and waffles in place of maple syrup.
