Labor Day Pancakes

Pin It Now!
False alarm -these aren't really Labor Day pancakes. I just made them on Labor Day weekend. They are called Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes, but if put that in the title of my post would you even open it or would you just gag?
They are a recipe from They are quite different from traditional pancakes, but I liked them a lot.

Here's the recipe:

Serves 4

In these moist and tender pancakes, the cottage cheese adds quality calcium and protein. Serve with a bit of butter and maple syrup or, for a special treat, top with fig spread.


1 cup unbleached flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
4 eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
Canola oil cooking spray


In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, cottage cheese, milk and oil. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and whisk until completely blended.

Spray a large skillet or a griddle with canola oil spray then heat over medium heat. Working in batches, form each pancake by spooning about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet. Cook, flipping pancakes once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to plates and serve.Drop batter by the quarter cup onto the hot skillet.
