- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, milk, lemon juice and zest. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.

Editor's NoteIf using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

Great Sunday breakfast. I added a little extra sugar but other than that the recipe is excellent. I saved the leftover which I will serve as a dessert dusted with some powdered sugar. So light and fluffy, with the right amount of lemony brightness!

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.
