These are some serious pancakes. Calcium-rich ricotta gives them a unique texture and the low-sugar content helps you avoid that post-pancake coma, so common with traditional buttermilk pancakes. I find a little drizzle of honey to be the perfect match to creamy ricotta. Sometimes when I want to switch things up a bit (and bulk up the fiber of this dish), I replace half of the flour with buckwheat flour.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour Pantry
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder Pantry
- 1/2 teaspoon salt Pantry
- 1 egg, slightly beaten $1.50 for 6
- 1 cup milk $1.50 for 1 pint
- 3/4 cup ricotta plus more for garnish $4 for 10 oz.
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon $1.50 for 1 oz.
- 1/8 cup pine nuts $2
- 1/8 cup dried cranberries $2
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil for frying Pantry
- honey (optional) Pantry
Recipe Serves 4
- Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Whisk in milk, ricotta and egg. Fold in pine nuts and dried cranberries. The batter should be very thick.
- Heat vegetable oil in one or two large skillets over medium-high heat. Cook the batter in 1/8-cup increments for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until the edges are dry and the tops bubble slightly. Flip and cook the other side until pancakes are golden-brown on each side.
- Serve with a dollop of ricotta on the top and a drizzle of honey.

Hi there! I found your blog, while cruising other blogs, and I love your colors, recipes, and dollar amounts of the various ingredients! That is clever!
I have a question about the pine nuts used in this recipe; where do I get those?? I can’t say that I have really ever heard of those. Thanks for your help! :)

@A.Marie: The best brokeass source I have found for “pignolis” (also knows as “pine nuts” and, I believe, “pinions”) is CostCo. You can sometimes find them in non-chain grocery stores (esp. the small family variety if Italian owned), but they are expen$ive there. CostCo has been my best source of these. Happy hunting!

Holy Cannoli these are some good pancakes! Read the recipe once then decided to surprise my baby with a kick-ass breakfast today. Of course, I forgot 1c of the flour, but Good Lord, they still turned out amazing! I skipped the pine nuts (mainly since I didn’t want to go buy them) and used a mixed berry blend (note to self: chop up the strawberries a little more) and the look on her face was amazing!
So thanks, BrokeAss!! I will be a dedicated member of your epicurean society!
