Lately, I have had brunch on the brain.  I have been thinking to make a whole spread filled with delicious brunch recipes one weekend for my boys, but haven’t quite figured out exactly what foods are brunch appropriate!

The only thing that came to mind (so far) is Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.  Why?  Because I went to brunch once and that’s what I ordered.  And they were amazing!  So amazing that I haven’t forgotten about them in all the years that have passed since that one meal!

So I went scouring the internet recently for a Lemon Ricotta Pancakes recipe I could use to make for breakfast one morning and quickly got fed up.  Nothing I found was quite what I was looking for. Most recipes seemed too complicated for a meal that I tend to make when I’m still half-asleep.  I need an easy pancakes recipe!

So that’s what I came up with!  A simple Lemon Ricotta Pancakes recipe!

My recipe for these easy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes involves just a few simple steps and the ability to flip pancakes – that’s the hard part!  Stack them up, sprinkle on some powder sugar and finish them off with a few raspberries to fancy them up if you want, and viola!  Brunch is served!

With all this talk of brunch, let’s be real here…these pancakes are the perfect breakfast recipe as well!  Or, try them the next time you’re having breakfast for dinner!

I think you and your family or friends will love them!  My 9-year-old told me they are his second favorite pancakes…after a popular frozen brand!  Normally I’d be a little offended but he’s a 9-year-old who loves Lemon Ricotta Pancakes!  I can’t complain about that!

  1. These look sooo yummy and right up my alley. I can’t have dairy though so I wonder if I could find a dairy free ricotta or sub it for something? Possibly df cream cheese? Have some in my fridge might have to pick up a lemon and try it out 😉

  2. These look so tasty! I’m going to have to give them a try this weekend. My daughter is a big fan of pancakes. My usual go to for brunch is omelets. I learned how to make them in college while working in rhe cafeteria. They were easier to make than I thought
