American ricotta-lemon pancakes is the first surprising recipe I could make after having been out of kitchen for over one month with a broken elbow. But everything is fine and I can slowly start moving my arm again.
I can only make very limited movements with my arm at the moment. So it is not surprising that I chose this easy recipe for a restart. When I saw this recipe, I thought the combination of ricotta with pancakes could be very interesting. It reminded me of the Belgian blue cheese bacon waffles I made a few months ago. Though the taste is of course very different, the ricotta gives the pancakes a real fluffy texture. The dough is very thick, but the pancakes are perfect.
These pancakes can be served for breakfast or dinner, or any other time of the day. I prefer the combination with red fruit and honey, as it fits well with the ricotta. If you want you can of course also add cream or other sweeteners.
The inspiration for this surprising combination comes from the blog cooked by Julie. Sometimes I find very inspirational ideas there.
I love pancakes, and I remember it was one of the first things I was making when I was a child at home. If you want some more surprising pancake recipes, please check the following ones:
