Black Cherry Cottage Cheese Pancakes for Meatless Mondays
I am a breakfast for dinner, lunch and brunch person and would be happy, eating omelets, pancakes, French toast and other breakfast treats, three times a day. That would mean, missing out on too many other good foods, so I don't do it, but I certainly could.
For lunch today, we had cottage cheese pancakes and I integrated black cherry jelly into the batter. That made delicious pancakes even better and we finished them, quickly with satisfaction.
Pancakes are easy to make and most of my cottage cheese recipes are similar as is this one from Martha. I think, I have better recipes and have to locate them and compare.
Black Cherry Cottage Cheese Pancakes (adapted from Martha Stewart)
3/4 cup sorghum flour, (spooned and leveled)
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup low-fat (1 percent) cottage cheese
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 teaspoons oil
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in cottage cheese, milk, egg and vanilla.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Working in batches, drop cottage cheese mixture by tablespoon fulls.
Cook until bottoms are set and tops have small bubbles, about 1 minute. Turn pancakes and cook until just firm in the center, 2 minutes more. Repeat, using remaining 3 teaspoons oil for the other batches.
Eat and enjoy at any time.
