New Pancake Tuesday Recipe

In our house we have a weekly pancake tuesday morning which is a BIG hit!!! What the kids don't know is that I make them chocolate pancakes (with carrot, pumpkin or betroot puree) and honey panackes (with apple and cinnamon), so there is always a healty aspect to them!

This week I adapted a recipe from Martha that looked yummy : "Orange and Ricotta Pancakes". I love ricotta, so this is now a favourite for me :)

{{{Serves 4}}}

  • 1 3/4 cups part-skim ricotta cheese (almost a 500g tub, you could add all of it if you like it as much as i do)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest (1 orange)
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • Confectioners' sugar, or maple syrup
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 3/4 cups part-skim ricotta cheese, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 2 large eggs, and 2 teaspoons grated orange zest (1 orange) and orange juice. Whisk in 2/3 cup all-purpose flour until just combined.
  2. Heat 3 tablespoons canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Working in batches (and adding more oil to skillet as needed), add batter, using a scant 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer pancakes to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
