Ricotta Pancakes are a perfect addition to your Sunday Morning Breakfast.

I love Sunday mornings during fall and winter. The air is crisp and full of promise. I like to get up early and quietly make a pot of coffee. I catch up on articles I’ve gathered and gain perspective for the week.

Fall tends to slow us down even though it rushes us straight into winter. It’s a period of time where we measure what we’ve lost and gained as well as a reminder to be open to other experiences.

Try this Ricotta Pancake Recipe and Consider making Sunday Breakfast a time to relax and be restored.

These ricotta pancakes are light and fluffy. The ricotta cheese adds a richness to the batter that makes the pancakes creamy. You can layer with lemon curd, hazelnut spread, or a dusting of powder sugar with toppings of jams or fruit. But of course you can always go with Maple Syrup.

Try layering Whipped Mascarpone on your pancakes {recipe below} it adds another layer of subtle creamy sweetness to your ricotta pancakes.
