Pancakes are good—even great. But is there a way to elevate them beyond your traditional flapjack? You can add mix-ins such as chocolate chips and blueberries, of course, but there’s one addition that makes the final product even lighter and more tender.
That secret ingredient? Ricotta. When treated correctly, ricotta can transform a pancake from meh to magical.
The ricotta breaks up the breadiness that usually accompanies pancakes, and it adds an extra dimension to the flavor profile that’s both sweet and cheesy. Not to mention, ricotta pancakes are insanely light, almost cloudlike.
