Number of servings

Serves 4

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup part-skim ricotta
  2. 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  3. 3 eggs
  4. 1 tablespoon sugar
  5. 1/2 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together until you have a thick batter.

Lightly grease skillet and heat over medium heat. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of batter onto hot skillet. Spread the batter into a thin circle.

Fry each latke for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Reduce heat if the outside browns faster than the inside is cooking. Serve warm.
