Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Could I interest you in a new pancake recipe this Saturday morning?

Don't be turned off by the cottage cheese.  Well, I take that back, when I first looked at this recipe, I kinda cringed as well.  Cheese in pancakes?  I will be the first to tell you that it works.  It really, really works.

They are moist and fluffy and have a unique taste that I'll just let you figure out.  Everyone in my family ate them, and as usual, I should have doubled the recipe to freeze the other half, but I didn't.  There is always next time.

And no, I did not eat all four of these pancakes.  They were just for photo shooting purposes.  But I could have.  Yes, I admit I could have eaten all four of these pancakes, but I limited myself to two.  But you know what?  They kept me full for HOURS.

3 eggs
1 c. cottage cheese
1 t. vanilla
2 T. honey
1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt

Combine all dry ingredients and stir.  Then combine all wet ingredients and stir into the dry ingredients, just until combined.  Heat a hot griddle, spray with cooking spray and place 1/2 cup of batter into the pan.  Flip when bubbles start to form, about 1-2 minutes.  Cook an additional 30 seconds to 1 minutes on the other side.

Serve with hot syrup.

I'm now off for a Saturday with the kids.  The husband is working and I already took a batch of pumpkin cinnamon rolls out of the oven.  They are heavenly.  It was my very first time making homemade cinnamon rolls, but I took the easy route, this dough did NOT require any yeast.

A baker's dream.

Stay tuned.

  1. I love cottage cheese, and I'm sure it tastes great in these pancakes! I mean, many dessert recipes call for ricotta...so, it makes sense to me! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    I like the idea of adding cottage cheese to pancakes - and these look so fluffy!
