lemon ricotta pancakes with bacon

Let’s take a moment to talk about Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.  These babies are light, fluffy, and lemony.  When topped with pure maple syrup, these go off the charts! If you’re unsure about your love for lemons, reduce the lemon juice just a bit.  I’m going to say it, but it’s gonna hurt me…you could probably make these without the lemon. The light fluffy texture the ricotta brings would still be great. Note: I can’t be held responsible for what you’re missing out on by omitting the lemony goodness.

hope this makes your belly smile…
