"This was a disaster for me. I followed the recipe exactly, and double-checked that I measured correctly. Our pancakes were rather mushy inside like mashed potatoes. I tried adjusting the temperature and then added more flour. Finally I just gave up and trashed the whole bowl. The flavor was okay, it was just too much ricotta, I guess."
