Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

  • Whisk eggs, cottage cheese, milk, lemon zest and vanilla in a medium bowl.

  • Make a well in the dry ingredients; add wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Fold in blueberries.

  • Moisten a crumpled paper towel with canola oil and use it to lightly oil a large nonstick skillet and heat over medium heat. Spoon on about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake and cook until bottoms are golden and small bubbles start to form on top, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is browned, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Lightly oil pan between batches. (Adjust heat as necessary for even browning.) Serve hot.

These were very tasty the lemon zest really makes a difference. The batter is quite thick so they take quite a while to cook and because of the blueberries they stick to the pan. If I can figure out how to thin these down just a bit I think they would be much better. As it is the center seems not quite cooked. I serve w/ just a very light sprinkle of sugar. Read More

these were possibly the best pancakes i've ever made! the cottage cheese made them so light and fluffy and of course i didn't add the blueberries till i poured out each individual pancake. i didn't add the lemon zest either (i'm not a big on lemony taste) overall five stars! i'm definitely going to be making these again and again Read More

Awesome! I love the cottage cheese in these! I want to try some variations maybe... replacing the blueberries with bananas and the lemon with cinnamon? Other seasonal fruits would be nice too. Read More
