mixed berry syrup-

  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup mixed berries (any berries)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tsp olive or canola oil, divided


prepare syrup-

  • In a saucepan, add the berries, lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch, and water and bring to boil. Continue cooking until syrup thickens. 

prepare pancakes-

  • Combine baking powder and the flour.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the eggs until foamy. Add the ricotta, sugar, lemon juice, oil, milk and mix.
  • Add the flour. Mix until batter is well incorporated.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp butter and a 1 tsp oil. 
  • Using a 1/4 measuring cup, pour batter into skillet. Don't overcrowd the pan (I cook the pancakes in two batches).
  • Enjoy pancakes with berry syrup, butter or maple syrup. 


*Wipe down the skillet after each batch of pancake. Butter tends to burn quickly. 
*If you don't want berry pieces in your syrup, mash the berries as you mix the syrup.
