Recipe By: Chef John”If these pancakes were any lighter, they would float off the plate–and I didn’t even separate the eggs and whip the whites. Also, I used water instead of milk–and I liked them better that way.”

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup cold water or milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest (just the yellow part of the skin)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons self-rising flour

Directions

  1. Whisk water and baking soda together in a mixing bowl. Add ricotta cheese, lemon zest, vegetables oil, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth, breaking up lumps of cheese as you mix. Add melted butter, lemon juice, and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons self-rising flour. Whisk together, stirring until most of flour disappears into the batter.
  2. Let batter sit at room temperature about 15 minutes.
  3. Heat lightly greased cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Portion out 1/4 cup scoops of batter onto skillet (cook in batches). When bubbles begin to form on the surface and the edges of the pancakes start to look dry (2 to 3 minutes), flip and cook other side until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a warm plate.
