Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Nelda Speed


This was one of my few 'experiments' that received an unsolicited response from my youngest son (he'll soon be 27)!He used maple syrup, I sprinkled blueberries and a drizzle of honey. They disappeared so fast I didn't have a chance to get a photo! Original recipe from Food Network, courtesy of Bobby Flay. I tweaked it according to what I had on hand and/or preferred.
