Simple (but delicious!) Ricotta Pancakes

Hi all– We’ve eaten more than our share of pancakes around here.  But these are the tenderest, lightest pancakes we’ve run across.  I’m already planning to make them again when the kids come in for Christmas– I think they’d be a hit!

1 cup ricotta
3/4 cup buttermilk*
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
garnish: bananas (or your favorite fruit!), pecans, honey (or maple syrup)

In a mixing bowl whisk together the ricotta, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla.  Then stir in the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Heat the griddle on medium heat and spray with cooking spray.  Pour the pancakes and turn when bubbles form on the top side.  Makes about a dozen pancakes.

Sere hot with fruit, nuts and honey or syrup.  Delish!

*If you don’t happen to have buttermilk on hand (who does?), pour 2 tablespoons cider vinegar in the measuring cup, and fill up to the 3/4 mark with milk.  Let it sit a couple minutes to thicken.
