Honey-Lemon Cottage Cheese Pancakes


Cottage cheese makes these lemon pancakes remarkably tender. Flip with care since the extra moisture in the batter makes the pancake recipe delicate.

16 pancakes


  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 16 ounce carton cottage cheese

  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Butter, maple syrup, and/or berries


  1. In a large bowl stir to combine eggs, cottage cheese, honey, butter, vanilla, and zest. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir just until moistened. (Batter should be slightly lumpy).

  2. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook over medium about 2 minutes; flip when top is bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Cook an additional 2 minutes or until both sides are brown. Keep warm in a 200°F oven while cooking remaining pancakes. Serve warm with butter, maple syrup and/or berries.
