Now, nobody get a wild hair that I am pregnant from this post title! It just happens to be a favorite old song of mine and kinda fits this subject. lol! Anyway, I thought I would put up this recipe for a very good, and a little unusual pancake, that I happened upon. I like this recipe because it has a high protein content, as opposed to most pancakes that are all carbs. Due to being slightly hypoglycemic, I can't eat a lot of sweets or high carb meals. I have to have enough protein to balance it and this protein helps me have the energy to do the kind of work I do also. This recipe is just about right for 2 people but it can easily be cut in half.
Churchill House Cottage Cheese Pancakes
1 cup small-curd cottage cheese ( I use the low-fat)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 or 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
now, the original recipe calls for 6 tablespoons but I cut it to 2 or so with no problem. You could probably cut it more or maybe substitute a couple of tablespoons of a light cooking oil.
Beat eggs in a bowl; stir in cottage cheese. Add flour and mix until just blended but still lumpy. And melted butter (or oil) and blend gently to combine.
Melt a pat of butter or add a little oil to a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto the skillet. Cook until edges are golden brown and bubbles form. Turn and cook until light golden brown.
You can serve these with syrup but I like to add a little fruit too. What you see in the photo is sliced bananas that I quickly sauteed in a little butter. I top the pancakes with the bananas and then pour a little syrup over it all. Yuuuuuuummmm!
Well, I meant to get a post up yesterday for Solstice but things have been a bit busy around here. I did get my tree up and decorated and I have still had a few people coming by to purchase some pottery for Christmas gifts. In fact, Rurality and a couple of other local friends all met here this morning to peruse crafts and purchase stuff. I scored some of the great soap for gifts and they got some pottery to give! And we got to visit and talk for a while. I haven't even had a lot of time to visit my blogs I like to read; but I will catch up to ya'll!
I will try to post again soon and let ya'll in on some of the goings-on around here, complete with pics of decorations and all that sort of stuff.
