Ricotta pancakes

Ricotta pancakes


  • Use 2 separate bowls. Add the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in the other.
  • To the bowl containing the yolks, add the milk and ricotta. Whisk to combine.
  • Add a pinch of salt to both bowls.
  • Whisk the egg whites quickly to create a thick meringue.
  • To the bowl with the egg yolks, add the sugar and mix. Add the vanilla, flour and mix. Add the baking powder last and mix until completely combined.
  • Add a small amount of the meringue to the egg yolk mixture and mix until incorporated. Then add the remaining meringue and mix until it is completely incorporated.
  • Place a pan over heat and add the butter.
  • Using a tablespoon, add 2 heaping spoonfools of the pancake mixture to the hot pan. Since the pancakes will be quite large, don't add more than 3 pancakes to the pan at once so that they don't stick together.
  • Cook the pancakes for about 3-4 minutes, on each side. Cook until the bottom side turns golden and you see some bubbles form around the edges of the pancakes.
  • Flip them over and cook for 2-3 minutes more, until golden. Be careful that the butter doesn't burn and turn dark in color so that it doesn't make the pancakes darken on the outside when they still haven't cooked all the way through.
  • Repeat the same process for the remaining pancake batter.
  • Serve the pancakes immediately with maple syrup and walnuts! You can also serve them with manouri cheese, honey and cinnamon.
  • For a great breakfast, you can also fry 3 slices of bacon in some butter along with 2 eggs. Add salt and a generous amount of pepper and thyme.


If this is your first time making pancakes, try cooking them in the pan with vegetable oil instead of butter.

If the ricotta seems to have a lot of liquid, place in a strainer and allow it to drain for about 30 minutes before you start cooking. On the other hand, if the ricotta is dry and compact, omit this step.
