The pancakes tasted really good. The only thing I would recommend or change is to put a little bit of syrup on the rhubarb sauce at the table because it was a bit too tart for my family's taste. Also use only regular maple syrup if you want to enjoy the lemon flavor of the pancakes. Berry jam also tastes good on them.

Light, fluffy pancakes even with gf mix in place of flour! I had only 1 egg, so thirded the recipe and came out with 6 4" cakes. I was a little shy on the lemon juice, afraid it might overpower, but it didn't at all. Makes almost buttermilk of the ricotta, then adds a dainty flavor. Served with just a little plain yogurt and syrup or lingonberries. Light but filling- my mother got away (amazing restraint there) with eating just two. Thanks!
