Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Combine ricotta, milk, egg yolks, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Add cake flour, baking powder, and salt, and mix just until incorporated.
  2. 2. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites on medium-low speed until foamy. Increase mixer speed to medium-high and continue to beat, adding sugar gradually, until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes.
  3. 3. Fold 1/3 of egg white mixture into ricotta mixture with a spatula until completely incorporated. Fold in remaining egg whites until mixture is smooth and light.
  4. 4. Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat, and grease as needed. Ladle batter onto cooking surface, and cook until bubbles form on the surface. Flip with a large spatula, and cook the other side until light golden and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  5. Serve with fresh blueberries and maple syrup.
