Lemon & Ricotta Pancakes With Raspberry Sauce

"I've been having this love affair with Ricotta Cheese lately. After watching Bobby Flay make some yummy Blueberry & Ricotta Pancakes, I thought I'd incorporate it in my favorite pancake....that my husband and kid hate (they don't like the lemon)."

Ready In:
12 panckaes




  • To make the raspberry sauce, combine the Raspberries, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1 TBS Lemon Juice in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook until a sauce forms. I like mine chunky!
  • To make the pancakes, combine the flower, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Add the milk, oil, egg, and lemon zest.
  • Heat a non-stick griddle with non-stick cooking spray over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of the batter onto the griddle. Add a few spoonfuls of the Ricotta cheese to the pancakes.
  • Cook until the pancake bubbles (about 2-3 minutes) and flip. Cook until golden brown (another 2-3 minutes). The recipe should make about 12 small pancakes.
  • Serve with the Raspberry Sauce and a sprinkle of fresh mint.

  1. Imagine a Raspberry-Cheese Danish with a pancake texture. Nummy! A couple of mods to taste: I doubled the raspberry sauce and added 2 T. cornstarch and 1/4 c. water. Also added water (less than 1/2 c. sorry, didn't measure) to the pancake batter, as it started out thick enough to make biscuits. In short, I did NOTHING to change the wonderful combination of flavors. An added bonus is this recipe makes the kitchen smell so-o-o-o good.
  2. Made your recipe almost as written but did leave off the mint! I really liked the lemon in these pancakes, & that, along with the ricotta & the sauce made for some REALLY DELICIOUS PANCAKES & a recipe that's a definite keeper! Thanks for sharing it!
