  1. Set ricotta in a fine mesh strainer about 30 minutes before you start cooking, to drain off excess liquid.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Combine ricotta, milk, egg yolks, and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  3. Beat the egg whites in an electric mixer until stiff.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the ricotta and milk mixture, stirring gently until just combined.
  5. Whisk in a small amount of the egg whites to lighten the batter, then fold in the remaining whites.
  6. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat, and brush the surface with butter.
  7. Use a ladle or measuring scoop (I used a 1/3 cup measure) to pour batter onto the griddle. Cook pancakes for about 3 or 4 minutes, then flip, cooking until both sides are golden brown.
  8. Spread lemon curd between pancakes and dust with powdered sugar. Or serve with syrup and/or fruit.

        I made these for Nancy for Mother's Day today. They were pretty easy and really delicious. If you're looking for a light, flavorful pancake that goes well with fresh fruit, this is it!

              I can't wait to try these...they look really great and I bet they taste similar to a blintz.

                hi, I was wondering if you've tried these pancakes with a wheat pastry flour or something similar?

                  I love ricotta cheese and never thought about using it in a pancake. But WOW! They sound delicious and going to be on the table soon at our house.

                      Fantastic. Adding them to my Try Soon folder. I'm with family in Lake Tahoe this week and plan to serve these for breakfast some day when we don't get up early for skiing!
