Ricotta Pancakes with Berry Coulis & Whipped Cream

I’m entertaining this weekend, and when one particular friend of mine comes over, I always make sure this is on the menu – my ricotta pancakes with berry coulis is her absolute favorite! If you love a good breakfast and you haven’t tried this, make it with me.

Mixing cornmeal, which is a little gritty, in the batter gives these pancakes just a little crunch. Berry sauce with freshly whipped cream, makes them awfully good.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted 
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • lemon zest from 1/2 lemon
  • For the berry coulis:
  • 2 cups fresh berries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream for serving

Instructions

1

To make the berry coulis: put the berries in a pan with the sugar and heat gently, stirring with a wooden spoon from time to time. When the mixture comes to a simmer, cook gently for another 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and whiz to a puree, then strain through a strainer into a bowl. Let this coulis cool, then stir in the lemon juice.

2

In a medium-size bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and lemon zest. In a small bowl, combine the milk, eggs, ricotta, vanilla, butter, and honey. Stir the milk mixture in the flour mixture just until well blended.

3

Cook the pancakes until bubbles burst on the top and the bottom is light brown. Turn and cook the other side 1 to 2 minutes, until it is browned.

4

To serve pancakes: Whip the cream to a ribbon consistency. Very delicately mix in cold berry coulis to create a ripple effect. Put on a top of the pancakes with extra berries.

    Your guests are really lucky! Now you tempted me to try these pancakes with cornmeal in it. Sounds delicious, and I have plenty cornmeal that I didn't know what to do with. I must try as this is your recommendation! 🙂 Enjoy this weekend with your friends!

    When I was a kid (okay, as an adult too) I loved Smucker's berry syrups. I think I need to upgrade and make your coulis. This all looks amazing! I've also wanted to try ricotta pancakes forever! I think this recipe will be perfect, thank you for sharing. : )
