Cottage Cheese Pancake Recipe

Light, fluffy, and packed with protein, these cottage cheese pancakes make for a delicious and nutritious breakfast or brunch option. The cottage cheese adds a creamy texture and a slight tang, making these pancakes a unique twist on the classic recipe.


  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Butter or oil for cooking


  1. Prepare the Batter:
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cottage cheese, eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; some lumps are okay.
  5. Cook the Pancakes:
  6. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a small amount of butter or oil.
  7. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges look set, about 2-3 minutes.
  8. Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  9. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more butter or oil as needed.
  10. Serve:
  • Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as fresh fruit, maple syrup, honey, or a dollop of yogurt.

Enjoy your delicious cottage cheese pancakes!
