On Pancakes and Such

My mom was the master pancake maker (though we always called them patty-cakes), so I grew up thinking that breakfast equalled pancakes and meat of some sort, and often egg.  Daddy was partial to buckwheat pancakes (and I like them a great deal also), but when one eats low-carb, is there really a satisfactory pancake?  YES!  Thank you, Dana Carpender!  From her great cookbook:

Mix together:
2 eggs
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup whey protein powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt

We also add in some cinnamon.  Don't know the measure on that - just toss some in and the batter darkens up a bit.

Grease your iron skillet over medium heat and cook away.  The pancakes are ready to flip when the bubbles form, pop, *and don't fill in again.*  Makes enough pancakes for two people to enjoy.

I made these for breakfast this morning - we have them quite often - and I thought:  what a winner!  I'd have loved to have made some for mom to see if they'd have passed muster.  I'm thinking, they would.

Thanks for sharing the recipe. This sounds really good. I just need to go out and buy a couple of the ingredients so I can make them for breakfast tomorrow morning.
