2 tsp kosher salt

2 cups whole milk

6 oz unsalted butter, melted

4 large eggs, separated

2 tsp vanilla extract

12 oz ricotta cheese, broken up into small pieces

1. Measure dry ingredients and place in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
2. In a separate bowl, combine milk, melted butter, egg yolks, vanilla extract and ricotta cheese. Mix well.
3. With a rubber spatula, fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Combine, but do not over mix (lumps of dry mixture are ok).

5. Heat cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add 1 T butter and scoop pancake batter into skillet.
6. Add a handful of blueberries to each pancake on the griddle.
7. Cook 2 1/2 minutes on each side serve. Serve with butter and real maple syrup.
