Author Notes: I have a very basic recipe for whole wheat pancakes (I think from recipezaar millions of years ago) that I've tweaked and is a great foundation for more interesting breakfasts. This is one of our family favorites. The lemon zest just loves the blueberries and ricotta, and although these are hearty, they feel light and are delicious.em-i-lis

Serves: 4

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • scant 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh ricotta (I make Jennifer's!)
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • dashes cinnamon
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • ½ cups blueberries
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the oil and honey. When well-mixed, add the eggs, buttermilk and lemon juice, and beat well. Fold in the ricotta.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and lemon zest. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry and stir to combine. Fold in the blueberries.
  3. Heat a griddle and cook four pancakes at a time, flipping once or twice, until cooked through. Serve with powdered sugar sifted on top and/or maple syrup if you like.
