Ricotta Almond Pancakes with Cinnamon Pear Topping


Prep Time 20 min Total Time 35 min Servings 6 pancakes


1 cup Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons packed light or dark brown sugar
2 medium pears, peeled and cubed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup ricotta
1/4 cup finely chopped almonds


Place butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan or small skillet. Cook over medium heat until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. Add pears and cinnamon and stir to combine. While you prepare the pancakes, continue cooking the pears over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until thickened.

Remove from heat. Lightly grease a griddle or skillet. Heat over medium heat. Whisk together pancake mix, water, and vanilla until combined. Stir in ricotta, mixing just until combined. Stir in almonds. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle or skillet. Cook pancakes for 1 & 1/2 to 2 minutes. Then, flip and cook about 1 & 1/2 minutes. Stack pancakes and serve with warm pear topping.
