Pancakes Rule! Sweet + Savory Deliciousness Worth Waking Up For
Fabulous + Fluffy Orange Ricotta Pancakes
These are creamy with a custard-like center, perfect with a delicious fresh fruit compote or jam. We like ours with a spoonful of ricotta and fresh orange zest. #GetInMyBelly!
3 ½ T Granulated Sugar
2 t Baking Powder
¼ t Baking Soda
½ t Salt
1 C Milk
¾ C Ricotta
3 Large Eggs
½ t Vanilla Extract
1 T Orange Zest
¼ C Fresh Orange Juice
2 T Butter, melted1 ½ C Flour
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and set aside. In a separate large bowl, whisk together milk, ricotta, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Then, whisk orange zest with orange juice and add to milk mixture along with melted butter and blend until combined. It will curdle a little which is ok. Pour into flour mixture and whisk just till combined (batter should be slightly lumpy).
Pour about 1/3 C batter onto a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan on medium high heat. Cook until you start to see bubbles on the surface and flip to the other side until golden brown. Serve with your favorite topping or syrup.

½ C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
½ C Scallions, finely chopped
5 Strips of Bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 C Flour

1 Egg, beaten
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Then using a wooden spoon, stir in the milk and melted butter. Do not overmix. Add the beaten egg + cheddar cheese, scallions and stir.
Scoop about ¼ cup of the batter onto a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan on medium heat. Sprinkle pieces of bacon over the top of each pancake. Cook each pancake until you start to see the bubbles popping on the top then flip over and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
