Someone made these pancakes for me but they used ready to go pancake mix. And that's what I was looking for. I just needed to know how much Riccotta to put in. Also they used 1/2 spoon of vanilla extract. Delish fancy pancakes to break out of the norm.

Didn't make the blueberry syrup so that might have been why we didn't like them to much.

Great recipe. Made mine with strawberries instead of blueberries.

The directions can be a bit confusing but the recipe itself is easy and delicious. They truly are ligher and less filling. I have made hear pancakes many times now for friends and family.

I loved it my husband only liked it. I didn't have any problem making them. I recommend you read the recipe completely before making or you could have a problem. I made them according to the recipe and made the blueberry syrup also. I would give it 5 stars but the recipe could be written a little better with the syrup ingredients seperate and I must mention they are not the normal pancake they are different. But I was looking for different and I loved them.

We loved how light, fluffy and creamy these pancakes were. I made a few alterations to accomodate my husband's diabetes. I substituted baking stevia in place of sugar and served with sugar-free raspberry preserves and clarified butter. Did not leave us feeling overly stuffed, but comfortably satisfied. 5 stars for flavor, but I would only give it 3 stars for the instructions. The ingredient lists and instructions should be separate for sauce and pancakes.

I liked this recipe, but wished the directions were clearer. I started to make it from beginning to end and had mixed the lemon juice with cornstarch already when I realized that part of the recipe was for the syrup. I wasn't intending to make the syrup, as I already have blueberry syrup in my cupboard, so it was a waste of a couple of ingredients. Perhaps whomever posted this recipe could separate the pancake recipe from the syrup recipe just to make it clear. Thanks.

Yum! These were great. I added more lemon juice because I like the lemon flavor, and I really enjoyed them.
