How to make it

  • Mix together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks, oil, buttermilk, ricotta cheese, orange juice and vanilla extract.
  • Whisk together until smooth.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid mixture.
  • Mix together until ingredients are just blended.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg whites until just barely stiff.
  • Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter until blended.
  • Allow to sit for about 15 minutes.
  • Pour the batter into a heated, oiled frying pan and fry until you see bubbles forming on the top.
  • Flip the pancakes over and fry until lightly golden in color.
  • Place a dollop of butter on plated pancakes with a sprinkle of strawberries.
  • Serve with warm maple syrup.
  • Note: I also like to serve these pancakes with slices of apples or bananas that have been sauted in butter and 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon.

    This is the way pancakes should be! I just made these and they were superb. I used regular milk instead of buttermilk cuz I didn't have any. With the whipped egg whites folded in you get a nice fluffy pancake. I also used this batter to make some of the best waffles I've ever made.

    Everyone in my family gets such a charge out of the different types of pancakes I prepare. This will be next on my list and it looks like a great 5 fork pancake recipe.
