Description

Perfectly delicious and light pancakes with a hint of lemon!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • _____
  • ¾ cups Ricotta Cheese
  • ¾ cups Milk
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ¼ cups Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted Then Cooled
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Lemon Zest

Preparation

In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.

In a larger mixing bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, milk, egg, lemon juice, butter and vanilla until smooth.

Gradually add the dry ingredients into the large bowl and mix until combined. Add the lemon zest to the large bowl and stir to distribute throughout the batter.

Cook pancakes on a griddle or in a skillet on medium (make sure you grease the pan and when you drop a few water droplets onto the pan they should “dance” but not evaporate).

Cook 2-3 minutes per side. Enjoy with maple syrup or try a yummy blueberry syrup!

I made those over the weekend and they where AMAZING! So moist. I added some poppy seeds and served them with my lemon cannoli filling and they where a huge hit!

It doesn’t get better than this!! We made them on whim because we had lemons and ricotta on hand, and this is a favorite now. We added poppyseeds, but this recipe is a keeper! To prove how good they were, my kids (toddlers) ate about twice as much as usual. Even my picky princess ate a full one by herself!

This is one of my favorites to have when we go to NYC. I love them at Sarabeth’s there and these are close to the ones I’ve eaten there many times. Love them! Thanks for the recipe!

My husband once emailed this recipe to me and I thought he was crazy. It has been one of our favorites for some time now. We like them with honey drizzled over the top.

These pancakes are amazing! Very light and lemony. I have made them more times than I can count. I add blueberries to them and they really hold their own, even without syrup!

Yum! These were delicious. I used buttermilk and added blueberries to them. Perfect.

Great pancakes, the ricotta makes them very light and moist and there is a great lemon essence to them. Thanks for the recipe!

I used a meyer lemon, buttermilk and my pancake puff pan. They were delicious! We had ours with a little honey and a touch of cream.

These are fabulous and I agree that they do melt in your mouth. I served them with a homemade raspberry sauce which was wonderful with the lemon. This will definitely go in my favorites.
