Quick and Easy Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Cottage Cheese Pancakes are much to be desired! They have delightfully crispy edges and a very moist center that could make you hooked. Needless to say, pancakes are one of the best quick desserts made for breakfast. Cottage cheese is not a popular choice but this recipe might make you yearn for these yummy curds every so often!

To garnish these pancakes and make them look more appetizing, a variety of toppings can be used just like any other pancake. Drizzle maple syrup, jam or warmed honey. You can also top them with fresh or stewed fruits and complement them with a cup of warm coffee. Dusting over a good amount of confectioners’ sugar is also a great option to make a perfect finish. Serve them right away while they are still hot and the cheese inside is melted for the best results, making a perfect breakfast finish!
