Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Add bacon to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush 1/2 tbsp maple syrup over top. Bake in the middle of the oven until crispy and cooked through, 10-12 min. While the bacon bakes, zest, then juice half the lemon. Stir together flour, 2 tsp sugar, half the lemon zest, baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt in a large bowl. Add egg, half the ricotta and 1 cup milk. Whisk to combine, then set aside. (NOTE: Don't over whisk the batter. The batter will appear slightly thick. This creates fluffier pancakes!)
Heat a small pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter, then blueberry jam, 1tbsp lemon juice and remaining maple syrup. Remove from heat and stir until mixture melts, 1-2 min.
While sauce cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-low heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter and swirl to melt. Using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake, scoop batter for two pancakes into the pan. Cook, flipping once when bubbles form on the pancakes' surface, 1-2 min per side. Transfer pancakes to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with 1 tbsp butter and 1/4 cup batter per pancake until no batter remains.
In a small bowl, stir together 1 tsp sugar, remaining ricotta and remaining lemon zest. Divide pancakes and bacon between plates. Dollop lemon ricotta over top of pancakes. Drizzle with blueberry maple syrup.
