2011: A Cake Odyssey

Orange-Ricotta Pancakes were on yesterday's menu. These were good. The batter incorporated beaten egg whites which resulted in light, fluffy pancakes. This was very nice. However, I found them difficult to bake possibly because of the egg whites. They were hard to flip before they were cooked through. But they browned really easily. Most of them were really dark though not burnt. They had a lovely, subtle orange flavor.

I found the serving suggestion to be a little off. Supposedly this would serve five people with three pancakes each. I made 13 pancakes out of the batter but they were petite and light. I think this would serve three or four adults depending on their appetites.

Orange-Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes is still the favorite.
