Citrus Syrup

  1. Pancakes: Place dry ingredients and zest in a large bowl and whisk to blend. Separate eggs and set aside.
  2. In another bowl whisk together ricotta, sour cream, egg yolks, vanilla extract and milk. Pour into dry ingredients and blend well, but do not over-beat. If too thick, add a little more milk. Mixture should be thick but still flow nicely.
