Cottage cheese pancakes?

Lee Mar 12, 2005 05:35 PM

Can you make them with pancake mix? Anyone have a good recipe?

    Why of why would you bother with the pancakes mix?

    There is a recipe on foodtv.com for cottage cheese pancakes and probably on epicurious

      "bother with" pancake mix? Huh? And if she wanted the epicurious recipe, she would have gone there, not asked here.

        Ummm, I have pancake mix, so I asked. And as for asking for recipes, of course I can look them up, but I like to hear about what other people have cooked and enjoyed enough to recommend.

          Well, you see, the person that attempts to use a pancake mix in my view may well have never heard of epicurious. It displays a certain un-chowishness.

            UNchowishness? Please! Williams-Sonoma has some good pancake mixes, as does Esther's. No room for mounting a high-horse at Chowhound!

              Esther's pancake mixes? Can't find them on the web.

        Here's an easy recipe I make a lot:

        Cottage Cheese Pancakes:
        1 lb. cottage cheese (any kind)
        3 eggs
        1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
        1 cup flour
        1/4 - 1/3 cup sugar
        1 tsp. vanilla
        1/4 - 1/2 cup milk

        Mix cottage cheese, vanilla and eggs in a food processor until smooth and all lumps are gone. Add baking powder and sugar, mix, and add flour. Mix just until blended. Add milk to thin, starting with 1/4 cup. The consistency should be slightly thinner than sour cream.

        Cook on a buttered griddle until done on both sides.
        You can also add blueberries, etc. to the batter after the flour is added. These are great with blackberry jam, as well as maple syrup.

            I have a cousin who used to make them, but I never found out just how. They're apparently too plain or something to have made it into any of my cookbooks.

              I believe these may be derived from recipes for ricotta cheese pancakes, which are wonderful but I
              don't have a recipe. The ricotta has a finer grain and taste than cottage cheese, but you can probably substitute if you want. Look on Epicurious or Google for ricotta recipes.

              Joy of Cooking has a recipe that I'm made a number of times. Good change from "regular" pancakes.

                Yes, we make the ones from JOC a lot in our house, they're really good, fluffier than regular pancakes.

                Despite what I think of Martha Stewart, she has a recipe for orange-ricotta pancakes that are so easy and so outrageously delicious. Try them!

                  I know this is an ancient post, but I stumbled on it while looking for something else: this has to be the easiest healthy breakfast EVER. I did a blog post about it, but you don't need to go to my site: basically equal parts of cottage cheese and plain oatmeal, add 2 eggs or an equivalent volume of egg substitute/ eggwhites per cup of the mixture. Blend in blender until smooth, cook as regular pancakes and serve. They are not only high-fiber, whole-grain and gluten-free - they taste like a cross between a pancake and creme brulee.

                  Here's the link to the post, but you don't really need it, just follow the instructions above: http://quipstravailsandbraisedoxtails...

                    Hey, mhays, just had to bring this back from the dead, I made these pancakes today and they were fab! Four ingredients and idiot-proof. Thanks. :)

                    I did whip the eggwhites separately then added the rest from the food processor. Doubt it made a difference but I had to play.
