INGREDIENTS

  • 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) All-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) Salt
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Ricotta Cheese
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) Unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Grated lemon rind
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) Pure vanilla
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Fresh blueberries

 

 

METHOD

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a blender, add ricotta, milk, egg, sugar, 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the butter, lemon juice and vanilla; blend until smooth. Pour over flour mixture; stir until just combined. Fold in your blueberries and lemon rind (the batter will be thick!)
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat; add 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter. Using 1/4 cup (50 mL) dry measuring cup, spoon batter into pan, smoothing and pressing top until 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick; do not let pancakes touch. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown around edges of pancake bottoms.
  4. Using a spatula, flip the pancakes, pressing lightly until 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes or until fluffy and cooked through. Transfer to a platter and repeat with remaining batter, adding remaining butter after six pancakes are cooked.
