  1. Mix 2 tablespoons lemon juice and cornstarch together in a bowl until cornstarch dissolves.
  2. Stir blueberries and 3 tablespoons sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour cornstarch mixture into blueberry mixture; cook and stir until mixture thickens slightly. Cover saucepan and remove from heat.
  3. Whisk ricotta cheese, milk, eggs, sugar, juice from 1 lemon, lemon zest, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl until well blended. Add flour and baking powder; whisk to combine.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Drop batter in 1/4 cup portions onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry. Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter. Top pancakes with blueberry sauce.

Someone made these pancakes for me but they used ready to go pancake mix. And that's what I was looking for. I just needed to know how much Riccotta to put in. Also they used 1/2 spoon of vanill...

We loved how light, fluffy and creamy these pancakes were. I made a few alterations to accomodate my husband's diabetes. I substituted baking stevia in place of sugar and served with sugar-free ...

Great recipe. Made mine with strawberries instead of blueberries.

Yum! These were great. I added more lemon juice because I like the lemon flavor, and I really enjoyed them.
