What does ricotta do to pancakes?

Compared to traditional pancakes, these ricotta pancakes are super moist, soft, rich, and fluffy.

Can you freeze lemon ricotta pancakes?

Yes! I recommend placing a small piece of parchment paper between each pancake when stacking, then place in a freezer-safe bag. Freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in fridge overnight or 1 hour at room temperature when ready to eat. Heat up in oven at 350F for 5-8 minutes when ready to serve.

Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness! ’till next time! xxL
