After a long winter these pancakes are a welcome ray of sunshine. When my children were little & we ate the lemon pancakes, my son could not pronounce the words lemon ricotta; so he called them sunshine pancakes. And that has been their name ever since. Seems appropriate :)

3Gently fold the ricotta mixture into the dry ingredients.
4Do not over mix. Batter will be thick.
5Heat griddle, spray with a non stick cooking spray.
6Spoon approximately a 1/3 cup batter onto the hot griddle. Cook until browned and beginning to set, approximately 2 minutes. Flip pancakes, cook on the other side. Repeat, until batter is gone
