Ricotta & Orange Pancakes

Ricotta cheese makes these pancakes fluffy and moist.  Serve with warm maple syrup.

For an extra treat, blend together some orange juice concentrate, icing sugar and butter for an extra hit of orange on top of the pancakes.

Tip: Watch the temperature of the frying pan carefully because these pancakes are tender and can easily burn.
