Blood Orange Ricotta Pancakes with Strawberry Orange Sauce
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Pancakes
Serves: 4
  • 1 (15 oz) container ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp blood orange zest
  • 2 tbsp blood orange juice
  • ⅔ cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • ¼ cup blood orange juice
  • 1 tsp blood orange zest
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  1. To make the sauce: Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until strawberries break down and liquid comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce is thickened, about 20 minutes. (Note: if you start the sauce first, it will be done when the pancakes are done.)
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together ricotta, sugar, eggs, orange zest and juice. Add flour and baking powder and stir until well combined.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. (If the skillet is not non-stick, add some butter to the pan.)
  4. Ladle batter into the skillet and cook pancakes until edges are beginning to crisp, about 5 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook an additional 3-4 minutes.
  5. Serve pancakes topped with warm strawberry sauce.
