1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt


1 cup milk

3/4 cup ricotta cheese

3 eggs

Zest and juice from 1 lemon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon oil

Preheat griddle to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt). Mix all wet ingredients in another bowl (milk, ricotta and eggs, oil, lemon juice and zest). Blend together just until moistened. Do not overmix. Batter should be lumpy.

Using a 1 1/4 inch cookie scoop, or smaller spoon, place small amounts of batter on hot griddle to create small pancakes. Adjust griddle heat if necessary. Flip small pancakes when the desired doneness has been reached. It might be necessary to turn them prior to bubbles forming in the middle.

Top with powdered sugar or syrup.
