Ricotta Pancakes

I had some leftover ricotta and remembered that I had seen a recipe for ricotta pancakes. I think the one I originally saw was fancier, but this one looked fine.

As always, I adapted--soy milk for cow's milk cuz that's what we have in the house. I threw in an extra egg white I had in the fridge.

The egg whites probably didn't get as stiff as they should've. This was my first time beating egg whites. I used our new stick blender and it got foamy on top but not so much underneath. (I first tried doing it with a whisk. That was silly.) Still, the pancakes were pretty light. Compared to regular (Bisquick) pancakes, they were more moist, maybe eggier.

They're good, but I don't know if I'd go out of my way to make them. Maybe only when I have leftover ricotta. Or maybe this is one of those foods that will grow on me--I don't think much of it now, but in a month or so I'll be craving it. I'll let you know.

What a yummy looking recipe! I'm definitely going to try this one. I think Kawika just uses a plain old fork to whip egg whites. You just have to do it for a while.
