2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (3 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon grated orange rind
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
3 large egg yolks
3 large egg whites


Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Combine ricotta cheese and next 4 ingredients (cheese through yolks), and add to the flour mixture, stirring until smooth. Beat egg whites at high speed of a mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold one-fourth of egg whites into cheese mixture; gently fold in remaining egg whites.

Spoon about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.
