The Simple Addition That Will Give You Lighter, Fluffier Pancakes
By ANNA STAROPOLI
A quintessential breakfast, pancakes can be as simple or as intricate as you'd like. If you're looking to make your pancakes all the fluffier, consider adding one cheesy ingredient that will change your pancake's texture for the better.
According to America's Test Kitchen, ricotta, when added to pancakes, breaks up the breadiness of typical recipes. It adds complexity to both flavor and texture, balancing pancakes with a cheesy, yet sweet, twist.
To make your own, perfectly creamy ricotta pancakes, beat whole eggs with the ricotta, add baking powder, and then gently stir flour into your batter. This combination will prevent your pancakes from becoming souffléd and instead yield that desired, fluffy consistency.
