Extra-fluffy with creamy, custard-like middles and a citrusy zing of sweet navel oranges, these moist, decadent pancakes make a special Father’s Day treat. The orange adds a taste of springtime, while the ricotta adds a magical milky richness and creaminess to each bite. You’ll love them so much they may start making a regular appearance on your weekend breakfast menu!


½ c. juice and ½ tsp. zest, grated, from a Pittman & Davis Navel Orange

1½ c. all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp. sugar

1½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

1 large egg, room temperature

1 c. part-skim ricotta cheese

¾ c. milk

¼ c. butter, melted

½ tsp. vanilla extract



  • In a bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together egg, cheese, milk, zest, juice, melted butter and vanilla until blended. Add to dry ingredients; stir until just moistened.
  • Lightly grease the griddle; heat over medium heat. Pour batter by ¼ cupsful onto griddle. Cook until bubbles on top begin to pop and bottoms are golden brown. Turn once; cook until the other side is golden brown. Serve warm with berries, dusted with powdered sugar, or with syrup.
