Banana Ricotta Pancakes

"There is a funny story behind this. One morning I decided to make "banana sour cream pancakes" which is a favorite around here. When it was time to throw in the sour cream I saw in horror that our sour cream had gone bad!! I said to my husband "should we try ricotta cheese instead?" he looked at me as if I had just crawled out of the TV. LOL. I told him it cant be that bad and we agreed we'd give it a try. Lo & Behold, these are very good. We Loved it. Now we alterante between ricotta & sour creams. lol ;)"

Ready In:
9-12 pancakes




  • 1. Using one large bowl for the "dry" combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • 2. Using a med bowl for the "wet" combine ricotta cheese, milk, eggs, vanila extract, and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • 3. Toss contents in the "wet" bowl into the "dry" bowl and stir to blend well.
  • 4. Dice up bananas.
  • 5. Melt butter in a hot skillet or a hot griddle and smother it all over.
  • 6. Drop 1/4 cupfuls onto the hot skillet/griddle. (note, i used an ice cream scooper, it worked great.).
  • 7. Using your fingers drop about 5-7 pieces of diced bananas onto each batter round, making sure it gets distrubted all over the batter, not just one clump in the middle.
  • 8. Wait a couple minutes and then flip and press down with the back of your spatula to flatten it, not too hard though just a little pressure will do.
  • 9. Cook for a couple to a few minutes for that side. As soon as it's done, transfer to a warm plate and cover with a towel until you are done with all of your batter and ready to serve!
  • Note. because the sugar from the banana carmelizes, you will need to wipe down the skillet/griddle with a paper towel and add more butter after each batch.

<p>Hi! I'm jamie, 30 years old, divorced a couple years now. Before i got married, I had no clue how to cook other than simple top ramens or pasta ronis. Although, the women in my family (mom, aunt, grandma, great grandma, etc) were amazing cooks. One of the wedding gifts I recieved was an handwritten cookbook from my grandmother who collected all the family recipes from over the years, it is so treasured to me. I began my journey in cooking though that cookbook, and now i consider myself a pretty good cook ;p at least i've been told so!! :) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br />Hope you will give some of my recipes a try! And if you do, please leave a review... i love to hear what people think of the dishes, good and bad. I truly enjoy cooking and am always looking for ways to make my dishes yummier and irrestible!</p>
