"I made these for breakfast this morning & the first words out of my son's mouth when he took a bite was MMMMMMM! This pancake has the perfect flavor. The raspberry & almond flavor together is a great combination. If you don't like ricotta still make these. You can't taste it! We will never eat "regular" pancakes again!"
