  1. Sorry about the pancakes. Let us know if you find the perfect recipe. I love lemon ricotta! I make lemon ricotta cookies and they are my favorite. Maybe I can just call them pancakes and eat them for breakfast:)

  2. I totally agree about the bacon! I always eat french toast and pancakes with a side of bacon. Yum! Sorry your pancakes didn’t work out :(

  3. I’m sorry they didnt turn out but they look wonderful! I’d love ’em with a little blueberry syrup and that side of bacon.

  4. Please solve the recipe hunt and keep us posted. You’ve really got me craving lemon ricotta pancakes now.
    I was all set to make your quiche with tortilla crust for dinner, but…my kids had a field trip to a chicken farm. I don’t think I’ll be eating eggs for a few days. What a baby, huh? I’ll be back to old myself and ready for quiche in no time…I hope.

  5. It sure ‘sounded’ promising! I’ve never had them but they sound like something I would order if I saw them on a menu. Breakfast/brunch is my fave time to go out to eat.

    I think bacon makes most things taste better!

  6. everything’s better with bacon, right? maybe you could eat your bacon while you’re making the pancakes and that’d keep you from devouring them as they come off the griddle. :)

  7. Oh, yummy! What a wonderful combination! The ricotta makes the pancakes ever so fluffy……. I love that magazine!



  8. Hope you ll find the mysterious recipe soon since you made me curious what these yummy pancakes taste like. I always make plain ones and top them with my favourite filling. Not too adventurous eh !! :-)

  9. Bacon is a must with pancakes! Let me know if you crack the lemon ricoota pancake code. I would love to have a good recipe.

  10. The pancakes sound wonderful. When you get the recipe down, do post.

    And who doesn’t love bacon?! God bless bacon.

  11. Aaaah, sorry the pancakes didn’t live up to your memory of them.

    I wonder if part of the appeal of the bacon is that it’s salty… kind of balances the sweet. Or maybe it IS the grease, lol.

  12. wow these look amazing. my suggestion: add more lemon zest, and buy your ricotta from a small italian market if you have one.

    I don’t really like bacon with my pancakes, but I always wish I had a nice bite of toast to counter the sweetness. weird, i know

  13. Dang, you got me! I thought you knew it and I was so interested! I’ve seen them made too, but never tried -assuming it would be difficult to get just right. When you find a good one, I hope you let us all in on it!

  14. I’m sorry the taste wasn’t what you were after because they look just perfect! And you are so right about the bacon.

  15. There’s an AMAZING recipe for Five Points restaurant’s lemon ricotta pancakes in Marc Meyer’s brunch cookbook. The whole cookbook is pretty great. you have to be gentle with them, and not brown too much. Plus, fresh ricotta (I buy it at the cheese store) definitely makes them better.

  16. So, I have this half-full container of ricotta from our local co-op sitting in my refrigerator after I used part of it for a vegetarian lasagna dish. What else can I do with this ricotta? I am already starting to imagine it covered with mold before I can find something wonderful to make with it!

  17. Eke — I wish I had some good suggestions for you. It sounds as though you have a nice batch of ricotta on your hands. You could drizzle it with honey and eat it for dessert. Or you could make a thin crust pizza and top it with ricotta and some herbs. oh what else? there must be more!
