She wore a raspberry beret, the kind you find in a second hand store…
What do you do when you have an indeterminate amount of a random ingredient in your fridge? We google it. I (N.) have been making a point to look through the fridge before we make our meal plan and grocery shopping list so I know which products we need to use up. Friday I discovered that we had roughly a cup of ricotta cheese that we needed to use up and Google came to my rescue. I found a number or ricotta recipes but I wanted something to make for our Sunday morning breakfast so that limited my options. I love cheesecake but even I can’t justify that as a breakfast food.
I found some pancake recipes that looked promising and one of my favorite pancakes recipes uses cottage cheese so I’m not above putting something random in my pancake. However, we had pancakes last Sunday and again this Saturday so we wanted something a little different. We also wanted to use up some of our frozen fruits and vegetables so I found this recipe.
We followed it almost exactly except we were short a bit of butter and a bit of ricotta cheese but they still came out great. We didn’t have frozen mixed berries so we used raspberries instead. I’m not normally a fan since they are so tart but the sweetness of the cake is a great balance to the flavors. Plus we have leftovers to snack on for the rest of the week 🙂
