Peach Prosecco Syrup

Happy Valentine's day ~  It's a little late for you to make this today but there's always next weekend.  Plus you can make some Peach Bellini's to serve with the pancakes or waffles.



Peach Prosecco Syrup

16 oz frozen peach slices
1 cup Prosecco
1/2 cup peach nectar
1/4 cup sugar

Place everything in a large saucepan and turn to medium heat until it starts to simmer.  In a small dish (or your measuring cup) mix together 1/4 cup peach nectar and 1 tbsp cornstarch.  Stir into the peaches and cook until it thickens.  Mix in 1/4 tsp cinnamon.

I made ricotta pancakes to use the syrup on.


Ricotta Pancakes

In a medium bowl, melt 1 tbsp butter in the microwave and cool.

Add in ~

2 large egg yolks (beat the whites in a separate bowl to add in later)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup ricotta
1/2 cup milk

Mix together and then add in ~

1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar

Fold in the egg whites.  Let sit for 15 minutes.  Heat your griddle.  Melt a little butter on it before starting your pancakes.  When the pancakes are bubbling and turning golden on the first side, flip carefully and cook the second side.
