Let's start 2023 with fantastic Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, perfect for a special breakfast or whenever you want to start your day with a sweet treat.
Magnolia Table Cookbook inspires this recipe, but the big difference is that we love adding lemon to our ricotta pancakes. Thanks to the ricotta cheese, these pancakes are moist, and using vanilla extract makes them taste and smell amazing.
