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 :)

    ** These sunshine pancakes are puffy & light & have a wonderful refreshing taste of lemon. The addition of the fresh berries and just a drizzle of maple syrup makes these pancakes our all time favorite. I hope you enjoy them too
