1 cup ricotta cheese (in Israel it’s called gvina rikota, manufactured by “Gad”)
1 cup milk, low-fat is fine
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon peel, optional but recommended
1 cup flour (I used 70% whole wheat)
3 Tbsp white or turbinado sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2–3 Tbsp oil, for frying
Combine ricotta cheese, milk, lemon juice, and peel in a small bowl. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt and stir just until combined. Drop batter by two tablespoonfuls onto a greased, hot frying pan. Fry for two minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to cool. Serve hot or warm. (My kids nosh them straight from the fridge too!).
