Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Say WHAT? Cottage Cheese? Think of this as a Ricotta alternative. The pancakes are gorgeous, fluffy and moist and you don't taste the cottage cheese - but it does add a lot of protein and cuts way back on the fat!

Good morning! If you follow me, you know I’ve been upping my breakfast game since I’ve been cooking for my fave octogenarians, the folks, Pat & Chuck. These Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes are one way I’m trying to improve the protein of their favorite breakfast fare.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes: Light, rich & airy all at the same time. There's just a hint of lemon but orange or vanilla is great, too.

First, to my children: These are not your Momma’s pancakes. I was the worst Mom in the morning and I apologize. I’m surprised you didn’t starve to death or die of malnutrition. And now, here I am making pancakes (and all kinds of breakfasty things) for the folks all the time. Secondly, even when I did make pancakes, they weren’t these Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

Best Basic Pancakes (Betty Crocker)

Betty Crocker Pancakes - these are the BEST no fuss, easy to make pancakes, ever!!

One Saturday morning, I woke up to two beaming youngsters. My daughter had pulled out a couple of cookbooks and found this recipe in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. To my mind, it’s the first thing she ever really made, and she was around 10. I’m still boggled! The logistics of making and cooking pancakes is a lot for a child that age. Heck, it’s a lot for me (not a morning person.)

More and more brunch! I want brunch all the time, now! Do you ever get like that – just go on a kick like a runaway train?

Apple Oven Pancakes

It’s no secret that I’m not a morning person. And I’m really not that into much breakfast food. So I’m not likely to be standing around the stove flippin’ pancakes at 7:00 a.m. No flippin’ way! But there are some breakfasts I can get behind and this Apple Oven Pancake is one of them.

Swedish Pancakes

These little silver dollar pancakes will never be mistaken for your typical American flapjack. The outside is beautiful with just the right amount of crisp, the inside, light and airy. Ethereal. Insanely good, really. It’s almost an insult to call these pancakes!
