Fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes video

These fluffy pancakes owe their pillowy-soft texture and lofty height to two important factors: a) creamy ricotta cheese and b) egg whites that have been beaten to submission. To flavour the batter, I used lemon juice and zest. You can easily swap this for vanilla extract or any other flavouring.

Let’s talk toppings. Honey, maple syrup or fruit compote all work really well. To make the blueberry compote as in the video, simply microwave frozen blueberries with a little lemon juice and honey.

If you live in a place where ricotta is not easily available, you can make your own at home with a few simple ingredients. I can vouch for the Smitten Kitchen’s rich homemade ricotta recipe that’s very easy to make.
