Cottage Cheese Pancakes With Raspberry Sauce

Posted on
Another favorite breakfast at our house is

Cottage Cheese Pancakes.

These are delicious, high protein,

and will remind you of a delicious
cheese blintz, only these are
so much easier to prepare.

I top them with raspberry sauce, a
dusting of powdered sugar and a
dollop of sour cream. Like I would a blintz.
Yum!

Here are the ingredients.

Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl, then
add the cottage cheese and whisk until
well blended.

Whisk in the sugar and lemon juice.

Stir in the flour starting with ¾ C
until it’s the right pancake batter
consistency. You may need to add a bit
 more. Don’t make it too stiff. Stir just
until the flour is blended.

Use about ¼ C for each pancake and flatten
then with the back of the scoop or spoon.

Fry in hot butter/oil until on MH
 heat until the edges are nice and crispy
and the bottoms are browned. Flip to
cook the other sides.

For the raspberry sauce I use a
bag of frozen raspberries.

Combine the sugar, water, lemon juice
and cornstarch in a small saucepan.
Bring to a simmer and stir until
thickened and clear.

Add the raspberries and heat
to boiling stirring to combine.
Let cool a bit.

Spoon the warm sauce over the pancakes.
I always serve pancakes on warmed plates.

If I don’t use all the sauce I freeze it
in small 1C containers.

I’m way ahead for the next time we
have cottage cheese pancakes.

I like to garnish the plate with a few
fresh raspberries, a dusting of
powdered sugar, and sour cream

This is such a great flavor combination.

If you don’t want to make the raspberry sauce
you can cheat and use raspberry jam
thinned with a bit of lemon juice and warmed.

That’s good too.

I’m going to try it next time with my
cranberry chutney or easy cranberry sauce,
warmed a bit. I think that would be
tasty and give it that holiday flavor.

This recipe is easily divided in half for just
 the two of us. Half the recipe will make 8 small
3″ pancakes. They mix up so easily we can enjoy
them any anytime. Makes your morning special.
