Ricotta Pancakes with Orange Zest

I found a Martha Stewart recipe, but the reviews weren't stellar, so I decided to revise it. 
Here is my version -- they are truly delicious!

•    3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese and milk mixed together
•    2 Tbl granulated sugar
•    1 large egg
•    1 teaspoons grated orange zest
•    1/4 tsp vanilla extract
•    dash of salt and a dash of cardamom
•    1/4 tsp baking powder
•    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
•    powdered sugar or maple syrup

1.    In a large measuring cup, mix together ricotta cheese, milk, eggs, vanilla extract and orange zest. In a bowl, combine salt, cardamom, baking powder and flour. Add liquid ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.

2.    Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches (and adding more oil to skillet as needed), add batter, using a large spoonful for each pancake (they need to be little to cook properly). Cook until browned, making sure they don't burn (can happen easily). Serve hot, dusted with confectioners' sugar or drizzled with maple syrup.

Yields only about 10 little pancakes, so if you need more, just double the recipe. Enjoy!
