Ricotta Pancakes

Total Time:
40 min
10 min
30 min

4 servings (16 pancakes)


Stir 1/3 cup of water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in the honey. Set aside and keep the honey syrup warm.

Using a rubber spatula, stir the remaining 1 2/3 cups of water and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the pancake mix and stir just until moistened but still lumpy. Stir in the ricotta into the pancake mixture, then stir gently to incorporate the ricotta but maintain a lumpy batter. Fold in the blueberries.

Heat a griddle over medium heat. Brush with the melted butter. Working in batches, spoon 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with the honey syrup.

What a delight! Light, tender and moist. My only problem is that the blueberries bled. So, I need to work on that issue, so that my pancakes don't look blue. Other than that, these were the best pancakes we ever ate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's lame to change a major ingredient then complain about the results. It's not the recipe, it's you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Luv these!! However, for my taste, i left out the white sugar, cut the honey in half and added the juice of a whole lemon. The family raved about them!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So delicious and moist...and creamy. I used low fat ricotta. I made them for my husband. He loved them! He likes honey so I knew he'd like the honey syrup and I did, too, even though I am not a big fan of honey. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a good recipe however I decreased the water in the mix from 1 and 2/3 cup to 1 1/4 cup. I also added 2 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, lemon juice and extra vanilla. Still came out thinner than hers so I don't understand how her mix is so thick. I was not a fan of the honey syrup but loved the pancakes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really good. Nice texture and just the right sweetness. Didn't make the syrup but I imagine it would be just as good as the pancakes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am not a pancake eater, but after having blueberry ricotta pancakes in Portland last weekend, I had to try making them at home. I made this recipe as written except that I added lemon zest to the batter as some reviewers suggested. It was a really nice touch. I did not make the syrup, however, but topped the pancakes with a small amount of lemon curd that I had on hand. Yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I probably shouldn't review this recipe since the only part of it I used was the honey syrup (I opted for a different ricotta pancake recipe. But this is a quick, easy and tasty syrup recipe. I haven't purchased store bought syrup in years, so it was nice to try this one,which I'll be adding to my repertoire of syrups. I added vanilla and steeped the simple syrup with cardamom pods before adding the honey. Great recipe. I will get around to trying the ricotta pancakes though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had the ingredients and willing diners to try this one. Love this recipe. Nice and crispy and buttery. Love the texture. Not light and fluffy like the Martha Stewart pancake recipe that we've used for years, but a nice change of pace. Especially delicious with fruit. I did everything as directed and loved the result. BY the way, my batter was extremely thick. Can't imagine any way of getting thin batter if you follow the recipe. Cant' help but to wonder if someone added the extra water, sugar and honey to the recipe rather than as a syrup on the side, or maybe the ricotta needs to be drained a bit. Giada doesn't call for it, but I do put mine in a wire mesh strainer for a few minutes to get rid of the moisture. Just a thought. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent & easy to make. Not sure what others were saying about batter being too thin. Came out perfectly. I used strawberries instead of blueberries and everyone loved them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
