• 8 ¾ oz ricotta cheese
  • 4 Tbsp sugar (using a raw sugar, evaporated cane sugar or my favorite sugar is best)
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 orange (large), finely zested
  • 2 oz flour (using “safe” non-hybridized flour is my preference…if you need suggestions under the nutrition section you’ll see options)
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter



  1. In mixing bowl, combine the cheese, sugar and egg yolks.
  2. Add the orange zest and stir gently with the flour.
  3. Beat the egg whites until they are stiff then fold them lightly into the cheese mixture. Be careful not to “fold” too much as to knock out all the air.
  4. Heat the skillet over medium and add the butter. When the butter begins to sizzle, heap a tablespoon of the mixture onto the skillet—you should be able to get three or four on at a time but leave room for them to expand.
  5.  Cook until they rise and have a nice golden brown underside then flip and do the same for the top side. Serve with butter, jam, and peeled orange sections.
