Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Sorry for the lack of posts in the last 2 years.  We have had some testing times in our household.  Mum moved in to stay while her house was built,  Crash test dummy 1 was really a fly in fly out with work and Crash test dummy 2 well he has grown up and has his own life.  Add in a dog to the mix and the cats didn't really love it.  There were some ups, some downs and a lot of laughs in the middle.

Mum has now moved into her house, taking the dog with her, CTD 1 is back home full time and CTD 2 well he's still all grown up and visits occasionally.

So I have 2 CTD's here for breakfast and I have wanted to try this recipe for a while, bonus I have all the ingredients in the fridge, so here goes nothing...

Update:  Straight from the CTD's mouths... Approved and a keeper!

3/4 cup Milk
1/2 tspoon BiCarb Soda
1/2 cup Ricotta
Grated zest of one lemon
1 tblspoon Canola Oil
1 tblspoon Caster Sugar
1 Egg
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tblspoon Butter, melted
2 tblspoon Lemon Juice
1 cup Self Raising Flour plus 2 tblspoons extra

Whisk together milk and bicarb.

Add lemon zest, sugar, oil, vanilla, egg and butter.  Whisk together.


Add ricotta.

Whisk together until smooth.

Add flour and mix until still lumps of flour showing.

Add lemon juice and mix until just incorporated.  Let sit for 15 minutes.

In a fry pan or on a griddle cook to desired size.
