These are quick and easy using a pancake mix as a base or the dry ingredients from your favorite pancake recipe. They are a nice change from traditional pancakes and a great way to use up leftover ricotta cheese. Serve with maple or fruit syrup.

These were great! I was a little wary of the only other ricotta pancake recipe on here so I did a search and found this one. It sounded fairly foolproof since it starts with Bisquick and it worked out great. Do NOT expect a fluffy pancake. That isn't what these are. These are more like crepes--very thin and rich. They were exactly what I wanted thank you for the recipe:) Read More

Recipe is very easy however I felt it bland. Once I made lemon ricotta pancakes and I wanted that rich flavor again. I did add lemon peel to this recipe. I would rather have standard pancakes or use my other ricotta recipe. Read More

We also had leftover ricotta cheese - what a nice change! Kids loved them (we did NOT tell them about the ricotta or they would have freaked out!). It's a GREAT way to get more PROTEIN into a carb-filled breakfast! (also great with blueberries!). Read More

Flavor was good and I would make them again I happened to have some left over ricotta and wanted to try these. I agree with others that the pancake is not fluffy but a creamy middle and it is a little hard to tell if they are done. Will have to experiment a little has great potential. Read More
