I wanted to share a Kapple family tradition with everyone: Cottage Cheese Pancakes. Now, I know that right now you are thinking about how disgusting that sounds. I thought the same thing when my husband told me about them while we were dating. But, once he made them for me, I quickly fell in love with them. I would actually venture to say that I prefer them over regular pancakes. Reid made them for us this weekend and I had to document their deliciousness. Please just give them a try!
If you don’t like cottage cheese, that is ok because they don’t taste like cottage cheese. Once you cook them, the cheese kind of melts and it creates a salty/sweet result.
The end product is more similar to a crepe than a pancake. They are very delicate.
We eat them with syrup and powdered sugar. Reid puts a little lemon juice on his. They’d also be delicious with berries in the summer months.
Here is the recipe:
Cottage Cheese Pancakes
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup cottage cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup flour
2 Tbs melted butter
1 tsp lemon juice (optional)
Beat eggs and mix everything in with the eggs. Oil a skillet and cut by the 1/8 cup. Serve with syrup, powdered sugar and lemon juice.
