Cloud Pancakes

1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup ricotta cheese
4 egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup milk
1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
4 egg whites
 
    In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In another mixing bowl, beat together ricotta cheese, egg yolks and sugar until well-combined. Add to flour mixture; stir until smooth. Stir in milk. Fold in fresh blueberries.
    In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold the beaten egg whites into batter, leaving a few puffs of egg white. Do not over-beat.
    Heat a lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat until a few drops of water sizzle on the surface. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle. Spread batter into a circle about 4 inches in diameter.
    Cook over medium heat until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked; turn and cook other side. Serve immediately or keep warm in a loosely covered, ovenproof dish in a 300-degree oven.
