tip

Do not over-mix batter or it will become thin, producing flat, tough pancakes

Ingredients

 

1 – 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 375 ml
2 tbsp sugar 30 ml
1 tbsp baking powder 15 ml
1/2 tsp salt 2 ml
1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese 125 ml
1 cup milk 2
2 pure vanilla extract 5 ml
1 tsp grated lemon zest 5 ml
2 tbsp butter 30 ml
1 cup thinly sliced, pitted Ontario peaches (approximately one medium-sized peach) 250 ml
Garnish:
sliced peaches for serving
pure maple syrup, warmed

Directions

In bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In separate bowl, whisk together ricotta, milk, eggs, vanilla and lemon zest. Add the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, stirring just to combine (batter will be lumpy).

In large skillet, over medium heat, melt two tsp (10 ml) of the butter. Ladle the pancake batter (about 1/4 cup (50 ml) each) into the pan, about three ladles per skillet. Top each pancake with three peach slices. Cook for two to three minutes, or until bubbles appear on the top and the undersides are golden brown. Flip pancakes and cook one minute, or until browned and cooked through. Wipe out the pan and repeat with remaining butter and batter. (Keep cooked pancakes warm in a
200F (93C) oven for up to 20 minutes.)

Serve peach pancakes with sliced peaches and warm pure maple syrup.
