Some pancakes are belly-busters; eat two and they drop like lead in your stomach. What a pleasure to discover light and fluffy pancakes that feel like eating air. The secret to these cakes is homemade ricotta cheese, whipped egg whites, and very little flour. The ricotta pancakes can be served sweet with maple syrup or savory with smoked salmon or tuna tartare.

Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes is Number 6 on the list of Top Thirty Recipes Celebrating the Thirtieth Anniversary of Kitchen Conservatory. The recipe is available here.
