Normally, if someone told me, “eat ricotta pancakes,” then I would tell them to get a life. But this morning something changed. I made them, and I was wrong: they aren’t crazy, but delicious. A few days ago I had a conversation in my head that went something like this: “The world loves pancakes, and I am no exception, therefore I want to make the best pancakes ever.” I proceeded to do some research about what makes pancakes so popular and I started to think about what I thought would make pancakes super cool. I came to some pretty tasty conclusions. I found out that the world really does love ricotta pancakes, and it’s not as crazy as it sounds. Although I was hesitant, I decided to try them out. Oh silly me! I thought that the pancakes were going to taste like big fatty cheese blobs. I don’t know about you but when I’m eating pancakes I want to go all-out sweet. I’m talking obscene amounts of syrup. And bring on the chocolate sauce! Bring on the berries! How about some sugar and cinnamon? Come on, I don’t care! The options are endless. Being the curious person that I am, I wanted to know about the worlds fascination with ricotta pancakes so I decided to make my own. Let me tell you, was I wrong about my hesitation! The ricotta does nothing but add moisture and glorious love and joy to each bite. You might say, “Come on, that’s a little extreme!” But really, ricotta pancakes are hyped up for a reason and I think you’re really lame if you don’t give them a try. I was scared about the ingredients, but they really are the best pancakes ever. Let’s do this people, and let’s do it together! Join the masses, join the trend and make these delicious ricotta and lemon pancakes.
