Cottage Cheese Pancakes



My sister Vera has been making these pancakes for years. They are always a welcome breakfast treat!

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

6 eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt

Add all ingredients in a blender and blend at high speed for one minute. Stop and scrap down the sides of the blender.  Continue blending until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Pour onto hot griddle or pan that is lightly greased. Flip when browned on one side and continue cooking until cooked through.
Serve any way you like with syrup or powdered sugar. Add some breakfast meat of your liking and some fresh fruit.

This recipe serves 4 people.

*You can also add one ripe banana to the ingredients in the blender for Banana Cottage Cheese Pancakes.

*If you don’t have a blender just mix with a hand held mixer or by hand.

  1. Oh this has many more eggs than the recipe I used earlier in the week (National Pancake Day in the US). My hubby ate them, but later complained that the batter was too wet. I'll need to give them another chance because that cottage cheese is good for extra protein and sometimes I have cottage cheese that needs to be used up. They look yummy and sound delicious!

  2. I have been making cottage cheese pancakes similar to this. I separate the eggs and beat the whites until soft peaks form and then combine with the rest of the ingredients. They are the lightest fluffiest and highest protein pancakes I've found. Friends with Krystal (friesen) Sawyer

  3. I wonder what this recipe would be like if you cooked it in a hot oven like Dutch Babies without the oil? Nice big buttered cast iron pan?

    They look yummy the way they are but I am always curious!

  6. I was hungry for potato pancakes for lunch and I clicked onto our blog ...and up comes your recipe for cottage cheese pancakes. I had just bought some cottage cheese this morning !
    Well.. I whipped up your recipe (making it GF of course -- substituting white corn flour instead of the wheat) and they turned out wonderfully! Vic and I really enjoyed them and this is a repeat for sure !!!
    Thanks, Ellen !!!

  7. Just a quick question - should we use dry cottage cheese or creamed?

    1. I use just regular cottage cheese, I guess that is the creamed kind? Delicious!

  12. I've always wanted to make pancakes for breakfast but the recipes here in Australia are so complex. Yours sound simple. But I do have one question: what kind of oil do you use? Olive oil or another type?

    1. Just regular vegetable oil Mozette. Olive oil might be a little overpowering in its flavor.

  13. Definitely use dry cottage cheese for this recipe, and to make them the true Mennonite way, don't use the blender, just stir it all together in a bowl, and use butter on your griddle.
