Who doesn’t love a good pancake?!? Okay, yeah sometimes I am worn out of eating pancakes. Miss GoGo is on a pancake trip and asks for them all meals and snacks of the day. So on about breakfast 3, I am over pancakes! This morning was no different, but this time I decided to play as I was out of buttermilk, and even a homemade substitute, wasn’t going to cut it. I opened the fridge and surveyed the options!
I had some cottage cheese and light sour cream and I’ve had sour cream cakes and they are moist and tasty, but together in a pancake?? Why not! The results were amazing! Very tender pancakes and when you add chocolate chips and syrup to them, even Miss GoGo devoured it!
Cottage Cheese and Sour Cream Pancakes!
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup Cottage Cheese
- 1/4 cup Sour Cream
- 1 tbsp Milk
- 1/3 cup Flour
- Olive oil for the pan
Step 1) Cream together the egg, cottage cheese, and sour cream. Break up as many of the cottage cheese chunks as possible. I did this with a fork, and only broke up most of the cottage cheese chunks.
Step 2) Add in flour and mix to combine. If it seems a little thick add some milk to it. The thickness will vary depending on how liquidy the cottage cheese and sour cream you are using is. Once just combined set aside and heat your pan over medium heat; with a little olive oil to keep them from sticking.
Step 3) Cook them over medium heat, watching for the edges to start firming up before flipping. They are tender cakes, so they will not take to rough handling when flipped. They also cooked a little faster than the traditional pancakes do. If desired add chocolate chips when you add the batter to the pan.
And there you have Cottage Cheese and Sour Cream Pancakes! A quick simple breakfast that even pleased the Miss GoGo!
Notes: As you see there is no added salt, sugar, or baking powder in this recipe. The salt content in the Cottage Cheese and Sour Cream is enough for me, so I didn’t add any. I didn’t add sugar because of the chocolate chips and syrup that goes pancakes, and not desiring to add more to a breakfast meal. I didn’t add baking powder, simply because I didn’t. Yes, it helps make fluffy pancakes, but my goal was simple pancakes for chocolate delivery to Miss GoGo.
