Here is the recipe a la Mama Chamberlin:
6 eggs, separated
2 cups small-curd cottage cheese
2/3 cup flour
2 TBS sugar (I add a bit more for a bit more sweetness)
Dash of cinnamon (I definitely add more than a dash. J)
1/8 tsp cream of tartar (don't worry if you don't have this)
Oil or butter for frying
Optional garnishes: sour cream, preserves, honey, apple butter, powdered sugar, fresh fruit or our family choice: maple syrup
Beat together the egg yolks, cottage cheese, flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until they are stiff but not dry. Fold the beaten whites gently into the cheese mixture.
Drop the batter by large spoonfuls onto an oiled griddle or skillet. Fry the pancakes until golden brown on both sides and puffy. Serve at once (important) with choice of garnishes. (Do NOT try to make this recipe ahead of time.)
Perfect protein breakfast for a morning sweet-tooth!
Serves 4 generously and is very easy to make a half recipe for two.
