Swirl ricotta cheese into pancakes to make them light and fluffy. Add Pure Lemon Extract for lemon flavor without tartness.
Mix pancake mix, milk, 1 cup of the ricotta cheese, eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of the lemon extract in large bowl until well blended.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto preheated lightly greased griddle or skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown, turning when pancakes begin to bubble.
For the the Lemon Ricotta Cream, mix remaining ricotta cheese, confectioners’ sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract in medium bowl until well blended. Serve pancakes layered with Lemon Ricotta Cream. Sprinkle with additional confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
Serving Suggestion: Serve pancakes with fresh or dried fruit, such as strawberries or assorted berries, currants or cranberries.
