  1. We have some FRESH maple syrup and some of it is going to poured on this fabulous pancake recipe. I can’t wait to try the ricotta addition. As a matter of fact- maybe for dinner tonight!

  2. Lemon and blueberry is such a wonderful flavour combination. I usually just go for plain pancakes or apple pancakes, so I’ll have to give your recipe a try for a change.
