The texture of these Lemon Ricotta Celebration Pancakes is fluffy and soft. As well, they have a great flavor. Fluffy blueberry pancakes are another yummy pancake recipe to try.

I think they’re exceptionally pretty and festive when you top them with whipped cream, fresh fruit, lemon slices, and powdered sugar. Such a  fun take on traditional pancakes.

  • All-purpose flour.
  • Baking powder.
  • Baking soda.
  • Salt.
  • Milk.
  • Ricotta cheese. Ricotta is a good source of protein so you’ll get an extra bump of protein to start your day with this recipe. However, ricotta is also high in lactose. Therefore, this recipe as written is not a good option if you’re lactose intolerant. (I did a quick internet search and found this recipe for Dairy-Free Ricotta. I did not test this recipe.)
  • Eggs.
  • Lemon juice.
  • Vanilla extract.
  • Lemon extract.

CAN I SUBSTITUTE SOMETHING ELSE FOR THE MILK?

Yes, you can. You can use almond or coconut milk instead. However, this will alter the taste and texture a bit.

WHY ARE MY LEMON RICOTTA CELEBRATION PANCAKES TOUGH?

More than likely you overmixed the batter. Take care to not overmix the batter once all the ingredients have been added. Over mixing can cause the gluten to overdevelop, resulting in tough pancakes.

It’s ok, in fact, it’s better if the batter is a little lumpy.

CAN I MAKE THESE PANCAKES AHEAD OF TIME AND REHEAT THEM?

These pancakes are best eaten while they’re hot and fresh. However, you can reheat them. Pancakes may be stored in an airtight container or baggie in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat them in the microwave whenever you’re ready.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  • cup lemon juice
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • Toppings: Powdered sugar, Lemon slices, Blueberries, or strawberries

Instructions

  • Difficulty level: Easy
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. In a separate mixing bowl combine milk, ricotta cheese, lemon juice, eggs, vanilla, and lemon extract and mix until combined. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and whisk to combine. If lumps remain, that is fine.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot, spray with baking spray. Spoon about ½ cup of batter onto the center of the heated pan. Let cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until the edges appear cooked and the bubbles in the center of the pancake have begun to burst. Flip the pancake over and let cool for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter. Top with whipped cream, powdered sugar, lemon slices, and fresh berries.
  • Only flip once and you're pancake will be fluffier.

Notes

Storage: Pancakes may be stored in an airtight container or baggie in the fridge for up to 2 days

    1. It was actually in March, Julie. I had the changeover from blogger to WordPress and didn’t do anything major.
