Strawberry Topping

  • 1 cup strawberries sliced
  • 2 teaspoon sugar

Orange Pancakes

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • 1-½ teaspoon agave syrup
  • ¾ cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoon butter melted and cooled


Strawberry Topping

  • Sprinkle sugar over strawberries and let stand for 30 minutes to make a syrup.

Orange Pancakes

  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine orange rind, orange juice, ricotta, egg, syrup (or sugar)  and melted butter. Beat until creamy and bubbles start to form.
  • Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Batter will be thick.
  • Spray a small skillet or griddle with cooking spray over low-medium heat. Add 2-3 tablespoon batter, spreading to form 5-6-inch round pancakes. Cook until bubbles form over the top (about 3-4 minutes) then quickly flip and cook the other side (3-4 minutes more). Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve with a dollop of vanilla yogurt and fresh strawberry topping. Sprinkle granola over the top if desired.
