Description:
Sweet enough to eat without maple syrup and fluffy enough to melt in your mouth, these blueberry pancakes are a real treat. Low-fat ricotta cheese and beaten egg whites lighten the batter. Freshly grated lemon zest gives a hint of flavor. Eat as is or dust with confectioners' sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup low-fat (1%) milk
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Driscoll's Blueberries plus more for garnish (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 200°F.
  2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl until well combined. Set aside. In a separate large bowl, whisk together ricotta, egg yolks, milk, lemon zest and vanilla. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture just until combined.
  3. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg whites into pancake mixture just until blended.
  4. Lightly grease a large nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Pour heaping 1/4 cup batter onto griddle and spread to make about 4-inch pancake. Drop about 10 blueberries onto each pancake. Cook 3 minutes, or until edges are dry and bottom is golden. Flip pancake and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until lightly golden on both sides. Adjust heat as needed to prevent burning. Place pancakes on a heatproof platter and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining batter and blueberries. Garnish with additional blueberries if desired.
