Ricotta Pancakes Recipe with fresh Strawberry or Raspberry Coulis

Michele Romano's Italian Ricotta pancakes recipe. Image: Italian Ricotta Cheese PancakesFresh, quick, healthy and oooh sooo good! They have a fine, tender texture and make a high protein breakfast or brunch for a lucky hungry bunch.

Creamy ricotta cheese is a delightful addition to many Italian breakfasts and desserts as well as several pasta dishes. Breakfast as we know is the most important meal of the day, yet the one we spend the least amount of time on. That is why is so important to find nutritious, yet not time consuming ideas to feed ourselves and our families at the break of day.

Patience and Pancakes go together, patience and Michele do not! Let me reassure you, if I can make these delicious pancakes so can you! They are by far the easiest pancakes I have ever made

Ricotta pancakes can be made ahead of time and reheated the next morning which is helpful to save time. Served with fresh strawberry or raspberry coulis, topped off with pure maple syrup, this breakfast will deliver the necessary energy needed for the busy day ahead.
