  • In a large bowl, beat together ricotta, butter, egg yolks, and vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, lemon zest, and poppy seeds. Using a rubber spatula, stir flour mixture into ricotta mixture.

  • Fold a large spoonful of whipped egg whites into ricotta mixture. Continue folding in remaining egg whites.

  • Coat a griddle or large skillet with oil and heat over high heat until very hot, then reduce heat to medium. Working in batches, place 1/4 cup batter for each pancake on griddle, leaving space, as they will spread. Cook until golden and top begins to bubble, about 2 minutes. Gently turn and continue cooking until bottoms are light brown. Transfer to a serving plate and keep warm until all the pancakes have cooked. Serve with maple syrup and berries.

I've been searching for a good lemon ricotta pancake recipe for a while now and this is absolutely the best. The pancakes are incredibly light and fluffy, just the right amount of lemon tartness and perfectly sweet. These are definitely a new breakfast favorite.
