    Nice and light! I did have to add 1 tbsp more flour because my mix was too runny and the pancakes weren't staying together. This could have been because I used fresh ricotta and it's more watery than the stuff you buy in the store.

    Recipe was okay- felt the batter made way too much for two people!! Made exactly as described, topped it with warmed raspberry jam made by my mother-in-law (nectar of the gods in itself!) and topped with powdered sugar...definitely light, a bit creamier than I'd expect- I'd probably add a T. of sugar to the batter; I'd bet this would taste really good as a base of a savory dish!

    I hate to only give this a 4, because the pancakes really were very light and fluffy, and my DH and kids really did like them. I just thought they were okay, almost a litte too eggy for me, and became soggy once topped with real maple syrup.
