Lemon Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes

Sweet enough to eat without maple syrup and fluffy enough to melt in your mouth, these blueberry pancakes are a real treat. Low-fat ricotta cheese and beaten egg whites lighten the batter. Freshly grated lemon zest gives a hint of flavor. Eat as is or dust with confectioners' sugar.
