Print Recipe


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries fresh or frozen and thawed
  • Cooking spray or butter for griddle
  • Homemade Blueberry Syrup


  • Whisk all dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar, in a medium mixing bowl.
  • In a separate medium mixing bowl, whisk wet ingredients, ricotta cheese, milk, egg, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice.
  • Combine dry ingredients to wet ingredients, whisking until just moistened and combined. Do not over mix.
  • Gently, fold in blueberries.
  • Heat griddle to 350 degrees or a large skillet to medium-high heat. Grease with butter or cooking spray.
  • Measure out approximately 1/2 cup of batter for each pancake. Or make them however large or small you want. Cook 2-3 minutes or until bottoms are brown and tops begin to bubble. Flip and repeat, being careful not to overcook.
  • Remove and, if desired, place into a warm oven until the remainder are finished. Continue with remaining pancake batter.
  • Serve hot with Homemade Blueberry Syrup.
