Sunday afternoon I was looking for an entirely unrelated previous post on teh blog, and came across this recipe for cottage cheese pancakes made with applesauce. It made me hungry (it was 2:00 and I hadn’t had lunch yet). But I had no applesauce, and anyway, it’s not my favorite ingredient.
So I made these instead- they aren’t as pretty, but they taste fabulous, IMNSHO.
Break eggs into blender, add cottage cheese. Blend until well mixed, add strawberries and coconut and blend until the strawberries are smooth. Add oil and flour and blend until nearly smooth (this doesn’t take long, about a minute at most).
Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto a hot, oiled gridddle. Cook just until there are bubbles on the top and the top is dry, flip and brown other side.
These break easily when flipping,so be careful. They are not as pretty as the ones without strawberries- they are darker, not golden, and look overdone even when they aren’t. They also don’t taste exactly like pancakes, but I enjoyed mine immensely and so did The Boy (we were the only ones home at the time).
You know how people will share a recipe for something that has no sugar and tell you it doesn’t even need sweetening? Or some food you usually top with butter is so rich that you don’t even need to butter it? I never believe it, either, but I am telling you, this is delicious plain, without any butter or syrup. It might be even better with butter and a cold glass of raw milk on the side, but it’s pretty tasty as is.
You might think it would be a good idea to try reducing the flour.
