Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
Lemon flavored ricotta pancakes with buttermilk.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 lemon zest
In a medium bowl combine flour with sugar, baking powder and baking soda, set aside.
In another bowl mix egg with electric mixer, add buttermilk, ricotta cheese, lemon juice, vanilla extract and lemon zest from 1 lemon.
Heat the lightly oiled frying pan on a medium heat. Pour about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the batter into the frying pan. Cook for 2-5 minutes. Flip when bubbles will form on the pancake. Cover and cook for another 2- 5 minutes.
- You can add more sugar if you prefer sweeter pancakes, however since they are served with maple or even honey, they will be sweet enough.
- Add extra lemon juice if you want more lemon flavor, but I think there is sufficient lemon flavor.
- What to serve it with? Add your favorite maple syrup, drizzle with honey or sprinkle with powdered sugar. Add some fresh fruits or top it with jam.
