Light Ricotta Pancakes

Light Ricotta Pancakes

Posted 2017-06-30 by Naomi follow
Fluffy, light, delicious and great for breakfast or brunch. I use homemade ricotta to make these fluffy pancakes.

They taste great served as is due to their delicious light flavour, but you can add strawberries, lemon curd, maple syrup or low fat yoghurt or ice-cream if desired. They are sugar free and can be made low fat, lactose and gluten free.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 20 - 25 pancakes (depending on size)

Ingredients
2 eggs, separated
1 cup ricotta (I used my [Linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/easy-homemade-lactose-free-ricotta/ lactose free ricotta] with low fat milk)
1/2 cup milk (light or lactose free)
3/4 cup flour (gluten free if desired)
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp oil, butter, margarine or nuttelex

Method
  • Mix the egg yolk, ricotta and milk in a bowl until smooth.
  • [Image2 Stir until the ricotta is smooth, not lumpy]
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt to combine. Add to the egg yolk mixture and stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, beat or whisk the egg white until light and fluffy.
  • Gently add the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture and fold to combine. Take care not to over work the batter.

  • Heat the oil (or alternative) in the frypan on medium. Add spoonfuls of the batter to desired size on to the pan.
  • Flip the pancake when golden brown, about 1 minute. Cook on the other side until golden brown, place on a pre-warmed plate, cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter.
