This recipe was easy to throw together and very yummy. I like cooking off the beaten path and this was right up my alley.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together ricotta, sour cream, butter, vanilla, milk, egg yolks, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and lemon zest until completely homogenized.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder on top and blend completely.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks and gently fold into batter – the batter should be just thin enough to pour- if too thick, add more milk.
  4. Pour by ¼ cups onto prepared 375 degree griddle and cook 2-3 minutes on first side, then flip and cook 1-2 minutes more, or to your liking.
