Just in time for spring, these light and fluffy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes are bursting with lemony flavor. Sweet berry notes, an explosion of citrus, and mellow ricotta come together for an impressive stack of delicious griddle cakes. Serve as an extra special breakfast, an elegant spring brunch, or a “breakfast in bed” treat! And don’t mind the ricotta cheese –it makes these pancakes moist and fluffy without added sogginess – just the way you like them! Your morning just got a whole lot better!
Lemon really makes these pancakes shine, and the Good Cook Citrus Squeezer gets you fresh juice without all the work. Squeeze away, then combine your ingredients in a bowl and whip up perfectly fluffy batter with the Good Cook Touch Whisk. Heat up your Good Cook Classic Square Griddle, and cook the griddle cakes until golden. Flip with the Good Cook Touch Flexible Turner, then serve with sliced fresh berries, a drizzle of maple syrup, and maybe even a dollop of whipped cream!
