Ricotta Cheese is the secret ingredient to perfect pancakes!

Making pancakes with the ricotta cheese turned out to be a huge success! As you bite into these pancakes it’s first crunchy, then turns into a deliciously warm and cheesecake-like creamy inside.

A simple Ricotta Pancakes Recipe the whole family will love! How to make pancakes with ricotta cheese that are crispy yet creamy with each bite you take!
- 32 oz 900 grams whole milk Ricotta Cheese (about 4 cups)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 – 3/4 Cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour + more for shaping the ricotta pancakes
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract optional
- Oil for frying I use olive oil
- Combine the ricotta cheese with the egg and mix until the egg is well incorporated (if using vanilla add it with the egg); add the sugar and mix again; add flour and the baking powder and with a minimal amount of mixing bring everything together into a smooth mass.
- Using a tablespoon or a large ice cream scoop, scoop the mixture then drop it into the flour. Coat the ball in flour, then gently shape into a flat patty about 1/2 inch thick. You can shape them all and then fry the ricotta pancakes, or shape enough to fill the pan and while they’re frying continue shaping the rest.
- To fry the pancakes add about 1 tablespoon of oil to a skillet and heat over low-medium heat. Add ricotta pancakes in, cover with a lid and fry for about 2-3 minutes per side or until well browned on both sides.
To serve: serve warm with a side of sour cream and a jam of choice.
To make the sour cream topping:
- combine sour cream with a little bit of sugar to make it slightly sweetened. Add more or less sugar to your liking. I do about 1/2 cup of sour cream + 1-2 tablespoons of sugar.
