Cottage Cheese Pancake Recipe -Quick breakfast chockful of delicious cottage cheese (think - protein), comes together in a jiffy and is eaten even faster!

I’m so excited to share this Cottage Cheese Pancake recipe, because it is absolutely delicious, simple and quick to make! We like to eat cottage cheese as is, with a tablespoon of honey or jam, but I am so used to getting a tub of cottage cheese every time I shop, that I got an extra one without realizing that I did so.

That meant just one thing, we were having Cottage Cheese Pancakes! Any excuse is good enough for me to have pancakes 😉 I get the large 36 oz tub since it goes fast in our house, so to keep things fresh I decided to use the surplus to a delicious use and make some Cottage Cheese Pancakes.

Because of the amount of cottage cheese in this recipe, the cottage cheese melts as it is heated which creates soft, gooey consistency. As soon as it cools, the texture firms up a bit and you get a cross between a regular pancake and a swedish crepe.

Cottage Cheese Pancake Recipe

Ingredients for Cottage Cheese Pancakes:

  • 2 cups (16 oz) cottage cheese
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

How to make Cottage Cheese Pancakes:

Whisk together 4 eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, 16 oz cottage cheese, 1 cup buttermilk,1.5 tsp of baking soda and 1 tsp of vanilla extract until homogenous. Now add 2 cups flour and  and whisk until combined.

Heat a nonstick medium sized skillet with a little oil over medium-low heat until hot. Add a heaping spoon of batter (or 1/3 cup)  to the skillet and spread around until about 1/4 inch thick. Cover with a lid and cook until the bottom is golden in color and the top is almost all set with no runny batter, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip the pancake and cook on the other side until it is golden. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve with syrup, honey, sour cream mixed with sugar or jam. Enjoy!

TIPS for Success: nonstick pan in this recipe is essential, as the pancakes tend to stick quite a bit. If you have a nonstick pan and it still sticks, add a little more oil to the pan.
Once you add the flour, do not mix more than needed to bring everything together. Overmixing creates tough pancakes.
Covering the pancakes with a lid between flips, speeds up the cooking.
