Lemon Pancakes


  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1. In a bowl, beat egg yolks, buttermilk, sugar and ricotta until well mixed. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and lemon peel. Add flour mixture to egg yolk mixture; stir until combined.
  • 2. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Gently fold into the batter until no streaks of white remain.
  • 3. Pour batter by 1/4 cupful onto a greased hot griddle. Use the back of the cup to gently spread the pancakes into circles. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown.
  • 4. To serve with honey butter, stir together butter and honey until smooth. Serve with hot pancakes.
  • 5. To serve vanilla sauce, combine all ingredients in a small bowl until well mixed. For an ultra-smooth sauce, place all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon milk or cream if sauce is too thick.
