I have few philosophies in life, but my number 1 motto is “Always say yes to pancakes”. Very, very rarely will a pancake let you down, because a crappy pancake is still a pancake and pancakes are a miracle food of deliciousness. They’re perfect for brinner after a bad day, breakfast on a special day, or late night diner food after a night out. Is there anything pancakes can’t do? I don’t think so.
I normally make vegan pancakes at home, but I was craving something way more indulgent on a lazy Saturday. I remembered some sort of ricotta zeppole/beignets/deep fried deliciousness that I had for dessert a couple of months ago that was made with ricotta (and whiskey caramel sauce, respect), and I knew that’s exactly what I wanted from these pancakes. Because it’s breakfast, I also wanted to cover them in fruity goodness. Thus, these lemon ricotta pancakes with strawberry sauce were born! These beauties have the same delicate texture I loved in that dessert. In fact, I might actually eat these for dessert with a big ole pile of whipped cream on top! Ooooh or chopped macadamia nuts!
Is anyone else obsessed with lemon, by the way? Every time I see lemon bars, lemon cake, lemon pancakes, lemon muffins, lemon curd — I just CAN’T stay away. I even love drinking glasses of hot water with half a lemon, juiced and floating in the hot water. Please send help. Or more lemons. Thanks in advance.
