Lemon ricotta pancakes with raspberries

Very fluffy and delicate pancakes. Thanks to the creamy consistency of ricotta cheese and a small amount of flour, they literally melt in your mouth. They taste intensely lemony, which pairs perfectly with raspberries. The recipe yields 2 servings, that is 12, 8 cm / 3 inch pancakes.

Dry ingredients:

  • 70 g flour (1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp / 2.5 oz)
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 250 g / 8 oz whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • zest grated from 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons sugar 35g


  • 125 g / 4.4 oz raspberries
  • clarified butter or ghee for frying


  • In a small bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
  • In a big bowl, whisk all the wet ingredients together (without the raspberries), until combined.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. They should be just barely mixed. Do not overmix, the dough can be lumpy.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat (best is a pancake pan), grease it lightly with butter. While the skillet is heating up, cut the raspberries in half / break them in half with your fingers. Heat the skillet until a drop of batter sizzles slightly upon contact.
  • Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the batter onto the skillet for each pancake (don't make big pancakes, they're delicate, flipping big pancakes can be a challenge), flatten it gently, cook for 1 minute.
  • Put 4 raspberry halves on top, press them in slightly, cook for another minute.
  • Flip the pancakes over and cook for about 1-1,5 minutes, until golden.
  • Transfer the pancakes on a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Enjoy!


  • You can use butter instead of clarified butter /ghee, but you need to wipe the pan with a paper towel after cooking each batch of the pancakes, as the regular butter burn quickly.
  • The key to success is a well-heated pan and cooking the pancakes over medium-low heat, so that the pancakes can be nicely golden on the outside and have enough time to be cooked through.
  • You can use frozen raspberries. They should also be cut in half, but keep them in the freezer and take them out gradually, so that they don't thaw. Alternatively, they can be completely thawed and drained.
  • To speed up the preparation you can cook pancakes in two pans simultaneously and keep the finished pancakes on a heat-proof plate in the oven at 80°C / 175°F.
