These pancakes are light and don't leave you feeling too full. The blueberry sauce is easy, healthy, bright, and perfect on top of these pancakes. Top the pancakes with blueberry sauce or maple syrup.

  • 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.

Keep pancakes warm in a 150 degree oven until ready to serve.

Didn't make the blueberry syrup so that might have been why we didn't like them to much. Read More

I liked this recipe, but wished the directions were clearer. I started to make it from beginning to end and had mixed the lemon juice with cornstarch already when I realized that part of the recipe was for the syrup. I wasn't intending to make the syrup, as I already have blueberry syrup in my cupboard, so it was a waste of a couple of ingredients. Perhaps whomever posted this recipe could separate the pancake recipe from the syrup recipe just to make it clear. Thanks. Read More

This is more like crapes than pancakes. However they are delicious I could eat the whole batch myself. But I didn’t and I shared them with my husband who loved them. I made them as directed but substituted the ricotta with cottage cheese and added more lemon peal, I like to taste the lemon and I used Meyer lemon. I need to stress that you read the whole recipe before starting. The ingredients look as if they are all for the pancakes but they are for the syrup and the pancakes. The recipe is easy to follow once you’ve read through it all. Read More

Be patient, it takes a little longer to cook than a regular pancake but well worth the wait. I served with a lemon curd and warm strawberry compote on top - YUMMO! Read More

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 vanilla extract. Delish fancy pancakes to break out of the norm. Read More

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 raspberry preserves and clarified butter. Did not leave us feeling overly stuffed but comfortably satisfied. 5 stars for flavor but I would only give it 3 stars for the instructions. The ingredient lists and instructions should be separate for sauce and pancakes. Read More
