Simple Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Recipe by  

"These are an old favorite of mine. I use small-curd, low-fat cottage cheese. They come out thin and delicate, somewhere between a classic pancake and a crepe. A nice addition to a reduced-carb diet."

The batter was too thick so it didn't spread well in the pan. They were thicker than I expected. I only had large curd cottage cheese, and that wasn't the best thing to use. Next time I will add use small curd and see if it spreads better, and I will add some cinnamon and vanilla next time. This is a great recipe though if you are watching your carb intake.

I didn't want to wait 1 hr to dry out cottage cheese so I did what I do when a recipe calls for dried out spinach. I placed it in a hand towel and twisted until all excess moisture is gone! Scrape off the towel into the bowl. The pancakes turned out great!

Yes, I would make again! Next time I would add 1/2 t vanilla, 1/2 t baking powder. Thank you for great recipe!

These are very tender and I think the blueberries made a big difference. They are a little eggy compared to a crepe or pancake. Overall these were well received.

awesome recipe. I added a 1/4 tsp baking powder to make them fluffier, turned out great. If you like cinnamon add a shake or two.
