Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes

We were watching Diner, Drive-ins and Dives and they made a Lemon-Ricotta pancake. It looked so good we searched and found this recipe which is very close to that recipe. It is the most tender and soft pancake we have ever had. It should be added to your collection of pancake recipes.

Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes


3/4 cup unbleached flour
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 tbsp. white sugar
2 large eggs, separated
2/3 cup milk
Grated peel of one lemon
Juice of one lemon
Butter for griddle


Separate eggs. Whip the egg whites until soft peaks.

In large bowl, combine all the ingredients and blend with whisk, do not over mix. Then fold in egg whites until just mixed.

Heat griddle. Lightly grease with butter. Pour batter onto griddle cook until batter bubbles or until pancake is golden brown.

Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

Hendria, these pancakes sound absolutely fabulous!! Great job. Don't you love when you see a recipe and are able to recreate it?! It's total instant gratification. Love it.

Rosemary said...

I'll be right there, keep the pancakes warm!

Abby said...

I've made these! Well, the ones from Serious Eats. I LOVE their texture. So unlike a heavy pancake - so much better!

And we watch DDD every week. We're thinking of scheduling some vacays around episodes! Ha.

Just wanted to introduce myself :) Great blog!

Elyse...I also made the Hazelnut banana french toast from Restaurant Makeover. Thanks for the comment

Hendria said...

Rosemary...I will have them waiting :)

Hendria said...

Abby. If I lived near any of the places he has stopped I would be going as well...some of the diners look amazing.

Hendria said...

Hendria, sorry to be so late in commenting but I've had linking problems to your blog, dabnabit.

Anyway, these pancakes sounds wildly delicious. We eat pancakes a couple times a month, and these would be a great addition! I cannot wait to try these.

Hendria said...

Katy...I hope you will enjoy this recipe....they are so delicious... :)

These look delicious. My hubby likes to make pancakes so I am going to put this recipe under his nose.

Knatolee said...

Okay, my hubby made these yesterday and they were great! I think I would like to try blueberry sauce with them, since I am not a maple syrup fan myself. But they were just fine as they were. Definitely a keeper.

Hendria said...

Knatolee...I am so glad you enjoyed them as well. The blueberry sauce is a good idea. Here is one we liked.

Thanks for the comment :)

Palidor said...

That's a very creative way to use ricotta. They look great!
