Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt)

  2. In a separate bowl whisk eggs - then add milk, ricotta, vanilla, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Combine well using a rubber spatula.

  3. Slowly fold the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir well until combined.

  4. Put a large frying pan over medium/high heat. Once hot, add butter to cover bottom of pan.

  5. To create perfectly sized pancake circles, use a measuring cup to scoop mixture, we use 1/4 cup. One at a time carefully pour scoops of batter onto the frying pan.

  6. Let each pancake cook for about 2-3 mins (or until batter bubbles). Flip and cook other side until golden brown

  7. Plate and top with blueberries, maple syrup, and powdered sugar.
