Breakfast in bed - Lemon ricotta pancakes

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen these pancakes a few times, but they are so worth mentioning again. I keep coming back to this recipe over and over again, and I usually eat them at least once a week. Best pancakes, hands down. Really. They've earned their place on this blog.
And the best bedding, too. These sheets from Evencki are so soft and so silky, I just couldn't resist having breakfast in bed. Honestly, I don't think I ever slept better than in this bedding. And I've slept a LOT. Trust me. Sleeping happens to be one of the things I'm best at in life, unfortunately. Though I must say it's also one of my favorite activities. I try really hard to be a morning person and get up early every day, but it's a struggle. If I didn't have coffee in my life, I would probably never get up. I set four alarms each morning, and sometimes it works and I wake up, but I can just as easily snooze for 3 hours more. Like that one time I overslept when I was going to be on live TV for the first time. No biggie. And one time I missed my train too,  I woke up five minutes before the train left and called the train station, still half alseep. I had to buy a new ticket. I think I need more alarm clocks in my life.

Gluten-free as long as you use gluten-free rolled oats!

  1. These look and sound amazing! I've been experimenting with my own gluten free ricotta pancakes lately, with less than perfect results (like, not holding together at all), so I will definitely have to try these. Also, those sheets! That purple might just be my favorite color ever, and they look so lush! If I didn't have a big dog who is fond of getting on the bed, I would be running out to get those sheets in a heart beat!

  2. Definitely my kind of breakfast in or out of bed!! YUM!

  3. Those look scrumptious! Love the marscapone topping, sounds delightfully rich :)

  4. Everything you make & photograph is so beautiful. It's heartbreaking. :)

  5. Your photography is so beautiful!!! These pancakes look delish! Awesome blog too :)
