Sugar-on-Snow Party Pancakes

by in Mar 2011

Total Time: 35

Yield: 16 pancakes

Not only are these fluffy pancakes delicious, they're also made with protein-rich ricotta cheese, which will give you a welcome energy boost on a chilly early spring morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound (1 cup) ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 cup light cream or half-and-half, divided
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup, plus extra for serving
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
  • Butter

Instructions:

Using an electric hand mixer or a whisk, combine ricotta, flour, baking powder, salt, and half the cream. (Batter will be stiff and lumpy; don't worry.)

In a separate bowl, beat together remaining cream, syrup, eggs, and vanilla, plus almond extract (if you like).

Stir into ricotta mixture and whisk a couple of minutes. Lumps will lessen but not disappear; let rest 10 minutes to smooth out the batter.

Ladle onto on a hot, well-greased griddle. Flip when cakes bubble all over the top. Serve with butter and more maple syrup.
