Orange Ricotta Pancakes

Orange Ricotta Pancakes — The other day, I came across some ricotta cheese in the fridge that was about to expire. The initial plan was to use it in some sort of stuffed shell pasta dish (like this one ?), but that didn’t happen. And since I had no adorable pasta shells at home, I wasn’t about to let this ricotta go to waste. So, I was off on a mission to use it in some other way – equally as yummy (I hoped!). BTW – still really want to make stuffed pasta shells, so stay tuned for that!

I browsed through tons of ricotta recipes and finally decided on these fluffy, delicious orange pancakes! What made me go with this recipe? Welp, I had some beautiful Cara Cara oranges at home that I thought I could use as well.

Okay, can we all just take a moment to appreciate the Cara Cara orange??

It looks just like a regular navel orange but has the prettiest pink colour on the inside. Just lovely. Literal beauty on the inside!

So, with ricotta in one hand and a Cara Cara in the other, this Orange Ricotta Pancake recipe that I found on Taste of Home was the perfect option to go with. If you’re in the mood for fluffy, delicious pancakes with the yummiest hint of fresh orange flavour, you will LOVE this recipe. Grab the recipe HERE. And peek through below for my ricotta pancake-making adventure.

Have a good one, loves! xx, Amanda
