Lime Ricotta Pancakes

I am such a big pancake lover that I have to make pancakes at least 3 times a week for breakfast. Does this sound boring? The truth is, I always try to make pancakes slightly different from the last time I make them, that’s why I’m never sick of pancake dishes.
A small change can lead to a huge difference, and this applies to everything in life. 
This lime ricotta pancakes taste like Japanese cheesecake! They’re fluffy, not overly sweet and carry a pleasant, subtle scent of lime. These pancakes will definitely put you in a good mood!


  • 35g all purpose flour
  • 1/4tsb baking powder
  • 30-35g ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 lime zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 8-10g sugar
  • 25-35g milk of your choice


Use dairy or non-dairy milk if you want


  1. Separate egg white and egg yolk. Combine egg yolk with ricotta cheese and lime zest.
  2. Add sifted dry ingredients and milk, mix well.
  3. Add sugar to egg white in several additions and beat egg white until stiff peaks form.
  4. Fold in 1/3 egg white to egg yolk batter.  Then pour mixed egg yolk batter back into beaten egg white bowl, fold in. (Checkout how to fold in batter click here)
  5. Heat a non stick pan, pour batter into the pan when it’s very hot. Cook over medium-low. Cover with a lid and cook for 1-2 min if desire.
  6. When the bottom becomes golden and small bubbles appear, flip pancakes and cook until both sides are golden.

Having breakfast at home is such a luxury and I cherish it.

Serve pancakes warm with fruits and coffee. This is pure satisfaction.

You can also top pancakes with whipped cream, if you don’t mind the calories 🙂
