"Cheesecake" Pancakes Printable Recipe1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar (or less, we use 2T)
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon lemon zest (or we use lemon juice)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Dash salt (or if you use unsalted butter use 1/4 t salt)
1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese
Whisk milk, sugar, egg, butter, and vanilla together in a large bowl. (Also add lemon juice if using instead of zest. )
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in small bowl. then add to egg mixture, stir just until incorporated.
Stir in cottage cheese (and zest if using that.) Don't mix too much as it will affect the fluffiness of your pancakes.
Use 1/3 cup to measure onto hot griddle. Cook until bubbly and light brown and flip. (Add blueberries or other fruit here before flipping.)
When you flip the pancake you will see the baking powder in action and it will rise a little as it cooks.
We serve with strawberry sauce or fresh strawberries and whipped cream, sliced bananas, nuts and whipped cream or syrup. Can be frozen and reheated.
