Lemon Ricotta Pancake Recipe

Want a meal that feels fancy but isn’t hard to make? Try our delicious Lemon Ricotta Pancakes! These pancakes are so moist (sorry, but there’s no other way to describe them) and soft and melt in your mouth good.

The secret? Ricotta cheese. Who would’ve thought that the stuff that goes inside lasagna would also make pancakes so good?

After you’re done cooking the pancakes, you’ll assemble a stack with a layer of lemon curd between each pancake. Then, top them with more lemon curd, berries, and whipped cream. Any berry works, so use what you have. There truly is no better combination than ricotta pancakes, lemon curd, and berries.

Are you drooling yet? These pancakes are perfect for slow mornings when you don’t really feel like cooking but still want to eat something yummy. And you’re probably all feeling that way right now.

But, if you want a quicker and easier meal, just use one of our pancake mixes and add ricotta cheese and lemon zest! It will still be delicious and so simple!
