Servings: 16 pancakes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour;
  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar;
  • 2 tsp baking powder;
  • ¼ tsp baking soda;
  • pinch of salt;
  • 1 cup milk;
  • ¾ cup ricotta, at room temperature;
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature;
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed;
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted;
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract.


  • In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt). Set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (milk, ricotta, eggs, mashed banana, melted butter, and vanilla extract). Mix until completely combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Don't overmix the batter. If there are small lumps in the batter, it's okay.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and grease with non-stick cooking spray or unsalted butter. Pour the pancake batter onto the hot skillet using a ¼ measuring cup. Then, spread the batter into a circle. Cook each ricotta pancake for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Then, flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter (grease the skillet again, if needed). Enjoy with bananas, caramel sauce, maple syrup, honey, whipped cream, chocolate, or blueberries.
