Ricotta pancakes are a popular breakfast or dessert in Japan. Many Japanese restaurants feature “Western Breakfasts” on the menu and so pancakes are well known. Ricotta pancakes are a little bit sweet and very fluffy when prepared correctly. Although you can serve these delightful pancakes with maple syrup, a little powdered sugar or fruit also makes a great topper.
Ricotta pancakes can be made by adding ricotta cheese and some vanilla extract to your favorite prepared batter. I like to make them from scratch using sifted flour, baking powder and a little of sugar.
