Lemon anything, but lemon ricotta pancakes…even better. But then on top of that, have you tried using lemon curd as the syrup? Like why did it take me so long to discover this? All you have to do is heat the jar of lemon curd and pour it over your lemon ricotta pancakes! A dusting of confectioners sugar and every berry you can find at Whole Foods and make it a brunch board!
Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Lemon Curd Syrup
I joined a few bloggers to share our favorite brunch boards and this past weekend we made ours for a few friends and had breakfast on the porch after a paddle.
I start with the largest white marble board I own and for a clean look, I add several different small bowls and ramekins in different shapes and sizes in all-white porcelain. We added the typical berries and then for an extra dose of color, we added the gooseberries which are my new favorite, tangy treat. I think color and texture is the appeal of brunch boards or meat and cheese boards. Even dessert boards with mostly store-bought items have an undeniable appeal to the senses. It’s like a buffet only it’s all on a serving board and it’s arranged with color and texture in mind.
