Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
I am LOVING Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook The 'Can't Cook Book"
This is the third recipe I have made from it. I look forward to making many more!
This one is a GREAT recipe. It sounds rather fancy but in actually it just as easy as regular pancakes.
And, it gives ordinary pancakes bit of Lemon Zing! They are light, flavorful and even The Tot likes them.
The dry ingredients:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
(the book calls for whole wheat flour but I always substitute whole wheat pastry flour- it's fluffier!)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Add two eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup of part-skim Ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp pure Vanilla extract
Whisk everything together. (Don't over mix)
Grate fresh lemon Zest (about 1/2 tsp)
Make as you would normally make pancakes. Pour batter into hot skillet. When you see bubbles, flip!
Add butter, syrup and enjoy!
