So I was thinking, it’s been a while since the last time I shared a pancake recipe, hasn’t it?
Honestly, it’s a little hard to keep track sometimes when I share so many recipes, but I can’t imagine it ever being a bad time for them, so I think pancakes are on the menu today!
I recently picked up some ricotta cheese for a recipe I had been testing out and, well it didn’t work out like I’d hoped (and yes that does happen to me). So I had all this extra ricotta around and it’s something I’ve never tried to put in a pancake, but it’s surprisingly perfect guys.
Some of my family like the thinner pancakes but most of them like the thickest fluffiest type and the ricotta helps give the best texture. The hint of lemon is just the thing to make these some seriously memorable pancakes and then , of course, I had to make some honey butter for good measure to put on top.
You could also top these with maple syrup but I thought, given the fact that I made the honey butter to go with them, the honey was a more fitting choice. I’d definitely recommend using local honey. Oh my goodness, there’s such a huge difference if you can find one from a good source. Last Summer we bought some at the farmer’s market and I think these bees must have been getting nectar from some of the wildflowers up here in the mountains because the flavor was hardly comparable to your common factory farmed clover honey. So delicious!
Oh, and while I’m on the subject of honey, I’ve been looking for a wooden honey spinner thingy (What’s the proper name for those things anyway?) Oh, and I’m working on my next video, and when I say working I mean planning. I’m honestly still trying to choose which recipe would be best. Let me know if you have any requests.
Alright, and one last thing I wanted to say about these pancakes is that they’re a little bit on the sweet side. You see, in my family it’s sometimes a thing to eat them plain as if you’re snacking on a cookie or something. Because of that, I feel like a hint of sweetness makes them perfect. On the other hand, if you’re the type of person that likes to have fairly plain pancakes so they’re just right to douse in maple syrup or chocolate sauce, then feel free to cut the sugar in the recipe in half.
I sincerely hope you love these as much as our gang did!
