Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes

A serving of stacked ricotta pancakes topped with blueberries on a white camp plate.

Originally made to celebrate Fat Tuesday for Mardi Gras, these blueberry ricotta pancakes are fluffy and delicious. These pancakes have a surprising and tasty blueberry twist. The combination of ricotta cheese and beaten egg whites make them especially fluffy.

To top off these wonderful pancakes, make your own blueberry-orange syrup. You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries, depending on what is available. Alternatively, you can swap out for whatever fruit is available.

This recipe references being cooked on a flat top grill but can also be made in a skillet or frypan. The key is to have cooking equipment that can hold a medium temperature to create a golden brown finish while cooking the center through.
