Reviews for Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
"This was very good My family enjoyed it and will make again. I did have trouble getting it to be cooked through out, but not too dark on the outside"
"I made these pancakes for my family and they loved them! I replaced half the white flour with whole wheat."
"These tasted SO BLAND! I didn't have the rhubarb, so I did not make the sauce...but they should still have some flavor..and they did not(and I had even added cinnamon to the dry ingredients). Could hardly even taste the lemon. They were also way too moist. I will not be making these again."
"These were beautifully light and creamy. My husband loved them. Will definitely make again."
"I made these and another ricotta pancake recipe that I had. These were the winner by far. I made them with orange juice and orange zest though because I wanted orange ricotta pancakes. They were light and moist."
