Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes

Spring is in the air with these light and airy lemon-flavored pancakes! This Simple and quick recipe that will sure to please anyone. Adding ricotta in the pancakes keeps them super moist.  You can serve these with warmed syrup or some macerated berries.  We like to add some fresh berries with a touch of sugar, lemon juice and zest for additional flavor. This recipe makes 12-14 pancakes.
