  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon zest or more for stronger lemon flavors
  • butter for greasing skillet
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup


  • In a large bowl, bring together all purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Stir to combine.
  • Dig in well in the middle, then add milk, eggs, vanilla extract, ricotta cheese, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk to combine until mixture is smooth.
  • Melt butter on skillet/griddle so there is a very thin layer of it on the surface. Set heat to medium/medium low.
  • Use a ladle to scoop pancake mixture and gently pour it onto the skillet/griddle. Add a few blueberries to the top of the pancake. Let it cook until bubbles are formed on the surface and the bottom is slightly golden brown. It will take approximately 1-2 minutes, maybe even more.
  • Flip pancake over and cook until the other side is down.
  • Repeat step 4-5 until all the pancake mixture is gone. It should make ~6 pancakes.
  • Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!


Add more lemon zest if you like stronger lemon flavors in your pancake
