Fluffy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup ricotta cheese (14-15 oz will work)
  • 3/4 cup low fat buttermilk (or kefir)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (5 1/2 oz)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Olive oil or coconut oil to cook

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar until well blended.
  2. Mix in ricotta cheese, buttermilk and salt and whisk until blended.

  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour and baking powder then whisk the flour mixture into the cheese mixture.
  4. Stir in the zest of 1 lemon. If you let the batter rest for 10-30 minutes, the pancakes will be even fluffier.

  5. Heat a large non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and melt in your oil. Spoon batter into the pan (about 2 Tbsp per pancake) and sautee 2-3 min per side. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil as needed.
