Lemon-Raspberry Ricotta Pancakes

I was raised in a home where stacks of freshly cooked pancakes were the norm every Sunday morning. I keep the tradition alive, making pancakes with almond milk, ricotta and raspberries. —Anita Archibald, Richmond Hill, Ontario

    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!
