Number of Servings: 4


    1 c. ricotta cheese
    1 c. sour cream or plain yogurt
    3 eggs, separated
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1 c. all-purpose flour
    dash salt
    1 tblsp. sugar
    2 tblsp. lemon juice
    2 tsp. grated lemon juice
    butter or oil as needed


Beat together ricotta, sour cream or yogurt, and egg yolks. Combine baking soda, flour, salt and sugar. Beat egg whites until fairly stiff but not dry.

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium low heat while you finish batter. Stir flour mixture into cheese mixture, blending well but not beating. Stir in lemon juice and zest, then gently fold in beaten egg whites; they should remain somewhat distinct in batter.

Grease griddle or skillet with a little butter or oil to coat surface. When it is hot, add batter by heaping tablespoon, making sure to include some egg white in each spoonful. Cook until lightly browned on bottom, 3 to 5 minutes, then turn and cook on second side. Serve immediately.
