    patticakes's Note:

    i found this recipe on the Precious brand ricotta cheese container in 1975 and have been making them ever since! our friend, Patrick, calls them "heavenly". these are such light, fluffy pancakes that it's hard to stop eating them! i double or triple the recipe for my family of 6.

      Recipe was okay- felt the batter made way too much for two people!! Made exactly as described, topped it with warmed raspberry jam made by my mother-in-law (nectar of the gods in itself!) and topped with powdered sugar...definitely light, a bit creamier than I'd expect- I'd probably add a T. of sugar to the batter; I'd bet this would taste really good as a base of a savory dish!
