Orange Ricotta Pancakes with Fig and Pistachio Compote*

  • Author: Cookinf For Bimbos


  • Pancakes:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • zest of 1 orange
  • Fig and Pistachio Compote:
  • 12 ounces fresh or dried figs, quartered
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pistachios
  • powdered sugar


  1. My favorite thing in the world is to wake up on the weekend (not too early of course), make a fresh pot of coffee, and make a kick ass breakfast. Well my friends, this is a kick ass breakfast. I’m talking about flavor explosion. These pancakes are so light and fluffy, yet decadent and flavorful at the same time. Pair those with a rich fig compote… heaven! The first thing you want to do is make the pancake batter. In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl mix together the ricotta, milk, egg yolks, vanilla, and orange zest. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix lightly just to combine. In another bowl with an electric mixer beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the batter with a spatula. Heat up a griddle pan or a large saute pan over medium high heat and spray with non stick cooking spray. Ladle the batter onto the griddle and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the pancake when you see it getting golden brown and let it cook on the other side. In another pan over high heat add the butter, brown sugar, honey, figs, and pistachios. Cook for about 2 minutes stirring frequently. Spoon the delicious compote on the pancakes, dust with a little powdered sugar, and you’re done! Now THAT’s what I call a breakfast.
