Lemon Ricotta Poppy Seed Pancakes

January 31, 2016

I think I have finally figured out how to make the fluffiest and custardiest (is that even a word?) pancake ever!

The only way to make it better was to add egg to it, because egg makes everything better- AMIRIGHT?! 

This recipe is pretty basic, no techniques here. If a hungover guy can make waffles, I think anyone can make this dish. The only thing it requires is some multi-tasking, but I’ll get to that later.
