Apple Raspberry Sauce and Ricotta Pancakes

I’m sure for many of you making pancakes is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Years ago when I came to US was the first time I had pancakes. Throughout my childhood we had crepes, sort of french toast and rice pudding for breakfast. 
This fat crepes were new to me.
My husband doesn’t like pancakes so I rarely make some. Most of the time I make crepes and fill them with whatever I crave for.
Over the time I learned from my own experience that my pancakes look and taste much better if cooked over low heat versus medium to high heat as most recipe require. 
I know I still have to make lots of pancakes until they look like the American pancakes. Well. Rome wasn’t built in a day, was it? 
As you might have noticed lately I’m starting to cut on my chocolate and replace it with berries. They are high in nutrients and have lot less calories than chocolate.
Tiffany prefers raspberry, she picks them from the fruit salad. Sometimes I might trick her with some blueberries or blackberries. I found at Bj’s a bag of 3 lbs of organic berries for just $10. 
Fresh are much better but in fruit sauce/spread or when making fruit yogurt frozen ones work perfect.
This morning I woke up and wanted pancakes. I remembered my friend Claudia had some ricotta pancakes paired with some apple and berry sauce.
I only made half of the sauce and used just raspberries. Turned out perfect, tasted like summertime.
For complete recipe and directions you’ll have to visit my friend Claudia.
While you’re there, check her wonderful cakes, there are so tempting. And since Spring is here and soon tulips are going to be all over, would you like to know if they are edible or not?
I started reading Claudia’s blog over the fall and fell in love with her photos and wonderful stories. It’s always a pleasure to read her.
My dear Friend, Thank you for being such a wonderful person and sharing so many delicious recipes with us.

    Those are perfect..I really don't see anything wrong! I am making them rarely as well not because my kids or hubby don't like them but because they never come out the way I wanted so I turn to my crepes:))) Great post and fantastic photos!!

  2. Kankana says

    You know as I was reading the recipe I was getting some new ideas about pan cakes!! Hope I just don't dream of these and wake up hungry craving for them. It happens with me a lot !! 😀

    I love pancakes…these are looking absolutely gorgeous. The vibrant colour of raspberry's are making me crave for them.

    I havent had the pleasure of eating a yummy ricotta pancake yet but this combo of the pancakes, ricotta and raspberries are amazing! I need to try one asap!

  5. Wendy Irene says

    The beautiful red color of the raspberries looks lovely on the pancakes! I love to add berries to my pancakes. I often sprinkle a few on the pancake a few seconds before I flip them over. If they are frozen I thaw them first. Berries and pancakes go so well together. One of these days I need to try adding the ricotta! Have a beautiful day :)

  6. Kate @ says

    We also eat more crepes than pancakes! But your pancakes look fantastic… the photos are beautiful!

  8. Butrcreamblondi says

    These look gorgeous! For some reason when I make pancakes it's usually for dinner instead of breakfast!

  9. Mary says

    These are close to perfect. They really look beautiful and I'm sure they are delicious. Your photos are really great. I hope you have a good evening. Blessings…Mary

    hope your hubby enjoys the shrimp dish :-) wow great pancakes and your right we get better with practice mine have improved a lot over the years love the berries

  11. Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels says

    Oh how I love pancakes and yours look just perfect! The apple raspberry sauce looks sooo good and I just adore the bright color of the sauce. :)

  12. Lizzy says

    I'd much rather have your crepe like pancakes than fluffy American ones! And I love them with berries…so beautiful!!!

  13. FOODESSA says

    Roxana…you little devil…what a surprise I got today. I'll be doing a happy dance for sure. I've already forgotten that I soon need to do my income taxes. LOL

    Jokes apart…what are American pancakes really? Yours look wonderful and plated so beautifully. Btw…if you liked these Ricotta pancakes…you may enjoy the yogurt based ones even more. Hubby is always asking for them and strangely, he's the Ricotta cheese nut in the family ;o)

    Again, Roxana, congrats on your well structured and always interesting culinary journey. It's always a true pleasure to come for my weekly visit to your kitchen ;o)

    All the very best,

    Love raspberries, they are coming down in price here finally. I like these pancakes you piled them on top of too. Would make for a great way to start the morning.

  16. Tanantha @ I Just Love My Apron says

    I rarely make pancakes too. Well, I don't really eat breakfast haha. I agree that cooking under low heat is better like when we're making crepe (?). The apple and raspberry sauce sounds delicious especially pairing with ricotta pancakes!

  17. denise @ bread expectations says

    I too grew up eating the thinner type of pancakes closer to French crepes. It was hubby who introduced me to the thicker, fluffier American style pancakes, though they did come out of a box of Betty Crocker instant mix LOL For the first time, I actually enjoyed eating pancakes and decided to learn to make them, without the additives in the instant version. Now we all love those thick, soft and fluffy pancakes at home and put all sorts of stuff into them :) Your pancakes look wonderful – love the contrast of the raspberries. Gorgeous!!

  18. Cristina - Teenie Cakes says

    Wish I had a stack of these pancakes right now. I don't usually make pancakes during the week, but today I may have to make an exception. 😉 Luv all those vibrant, healthy berries you've used. Congratulations on the Top 9 today!

  19. Spicie Foodie says

    I saw your gorgeous photo on Foodgawker and just had to stop by. The pancakes look perfect, looks like you've got it down. I also agree about the heat, high heat = burned pancakes. Love the sauce too, going to go check out the recipe.
