You should be happy that I only posted 5 photos. I had about 50 I wanted to post, but I practiced my self-restraint and only posted 5. Which let me tell you…. WAS. NOT. EASY. I mean sweet jesus… would you look at these pancakes?! I don’t want to ring my own bell or anything but I freaking killed it. (Just saying…. **Ahem** haha) 😛
These pancakes are such a delicious combination of flavours they will literally ruin all other pancakes for you (except for my Skinny Apple Pancakes cuz those are just as bomb.) The citrus, ricotta, and mint go perfectly with the fluffy pancakes below them. And obviously a drizzle of 100% maple syrup on top never hurt anyone.
Want to know how to make my Citrus & Ricotta Pancakes? Here’s the skinny:
Pancake ingreds (stolen from my main girl Martha):
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (for the pan)
- Ricotta cheese
- Blood orange, grapefruit, orange
- Fresh mint leaves
- 100% natural maple syrup
LET’S DO THIS.
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees so that when your first few pancakes are done you can keep em nice and warm in the oven. (Uhg hungry already.)
Now, whisk together your milk, oil, and egg. Add dry ingredients to this mixture and stir until just combined. If it’s a little chunky that’s a good thing. (Chunky is such an appealing word, I am aware.)
Heat up a large frying pan over medium heat. Add that tbsp of coconut oil to the pan. Once the pan is hot spoon 2 to 3 tbsp of batter onto the skillet at a time. I was making about 3 pancakes in the same pan at once. –> We all have our special talents.
Cook le pancakies until they bubble through the top then carefully flip and cook until the underside is browned. Easy peasy.
Now, plate your pancakes by putting 2 or 3 pancakes on each plate. Take about 2-3 biggg tablespoons of ricotta (or however much you want really) and put on top of the pancakes. Cut up your citrus fruits and add those babies on top. Then the mint leaves, then a little bit of maple syrup…. And oh my god I’m dying. So good.
What do you guys think?! Amazing?? If you can’t already tell I am kind of obsessed with this recipe haha. Hope you are too! <3
