We will start mixing the milk and the lemon juice and letting it rest for 10 minutes to form our homemade buttermilk. If you can find buttermilk you can add 1+1/2 cup buttermilk instead.
We will separate now the 4 egg whites and the yolks.
In a bowl mix the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and salt with the milk previously mixed with lemon juice (or buttermilk).
Now we add to the mixture the egg yolks and stir all the ingredients again.
Using a fork or mixer we will soft the ricotta cheese and later mix it with the rest of the ingredients we have on the bowl.
Using another bowl we will beat the egg whites until they form peaks, we can use a mixer or kitchen robot.
With the help of a spatula we will stir with involving movements all the ingredients with the whites.
Grease a nonstick pan and prepare your pancakes.
You must cook your pancakes 1-2 minutes and flip them. It is important to be careful flipping the pancakes not to break them.
Serve the ricotta pancakes with your sweet or salty favorite ingredients and enjoy!
