Hassayampa Hotel serves Gail and Charles

Come with an appetite for this good breakfast. Gail and Charles Lucky enjoyed the delightful meal as well as the history at the Hassayampa Hotel in Prescott. Looks like Lemon Souffle pancakes from page 52 of Tastes & Treasures cookbook and crispy bacon.

Lemon Souffle Pancakes pg 52

10 egg whites
10 egg yolks
¾ cup all purpose flour
3 cups ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
Grated zest of 1 ½ lemons
1 teaspoon salt
Vegetable oil
Beat the egg whites in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Combine the egg yolks with the flour, ricotta cheese, butter, sugar, lemon zest and salt in a bowl and mix well. Fold in the egg whites gently, leaving small portions of egg white intact.
Preheat a griddle or skillet to medium-hot and brush with a small amount of vegetable oil. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the batter at a time onto the heated griddle and cook until bubbles appear. Turn the pancakes and cook until brown. Remove the pancakes to serving plates as they brown, allowing three pancakes for each serving. Serve with fresh raspberries and raspberry syrup.
Serves 6 (makes 18 pancakes)
