Light & fluffy Ricotta Pancakes with hints of lemon and a fantastic texture to soak up a little syrup. Serve with your favorite fresh fruit for a delightful and delicious way to start the day!
If you’re a pancake loving family, I hope you’ll give these amazing pancakes a try! There’s something about ricotta cheese that turns these pancakes into light and fluffy, deliciously rich, tiny cakes that don’t crumble or fall apart when drizzled with syrup. Personally, I’m all about thick pancakes so we cook these low and slow to ensure they’re done all the way through. It’s practically torture waiting until they’re done!
These pancakes freeze beautifully and re-warm in the microwave for an instant delicious breakfast on the go. If you like light, fluffy, thick and delicious pancakes, you will be so happy with this recipe!
Our light and fluffy Ricotta Pancakes are pretty great with just a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
I love the bright, tart bite from the addition of fresh lemon juice and a little bit of sugar in the batter gives them just enough sweetness. These pancakes are an absolute winner and perfect for an easy Mother’s Day treat or weekend brunch. Enjoy!
Thanks for PINNING!

Light & Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ¾ cup ricotta cheese
- ⅓ cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- sliced almonds
- fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or blackberries
- maple syrup
- In a small mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. In a medium mixing bowl combine the ricotta cheese, milk, egg, vanilla and lemon juice. Whisk until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the ricotta mixture and blend well with a rubber spatula.
- Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with vegetable oil using a paper towel to remove the excess. Lower the heat to medium-low and add ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. You can easily cook three at a time in a large skillet. Gently spread the batter to a 3 ½-inch round pancake using the back of a spoon. Cook until the bottom is golden brown and the edges are drying. Gently turn and continue cooking until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a baking sheet in a single layer. To keep warm, put the pan in a warm oven until serving. Continue cooking until all the batter is gone. Serve and enjoy!
