Tender, delicate pancakes infused with a bright lemon flavor, ricotta cheese and poppy seeds.
Lemon and ricotta are a winning combination that gives these pancakes sweet, creamy middles and a burst of sunshine in every single delicious bite.
Since I discovered fresh ricotta at my farm market for not much more money than the standard stuff I’ve brought home a package every week whether I have a plan for it or not. I can’t resist its wily charms.
Super smooth and creamy with the most incredible flavor similar to mascarpone (they have that fresh too but I don’t dare), I could spoon up the entire package without batting an eye.
The pancakes are so special on their own they don’t really need anything. Bobby Flay recommends eating them with lemon curd and raspberries. I like the idea of blueberries. With neither in my house a little butter and maple syrup turned out to be perfect.
