What Type of Cottage Cheese Should I Use for These Pancakes?

What Type of Cottage Cheese Should I Use for These Pancakes?

If you can get your hands on it, 4% cottage cheese is super tasty for this recipe. But don’t worry if you can only find 2%, it works just fine too. I wouldn’t recommend using nonfat cottage cheese though, as it won’t give you the same yummy flavor and texture.

Do I Need a Blender to Make These Pancakes?

It’s best if you use a blender because it helps make the batter nice and smooth by blending the cottage cheese and adding some air into the mix.

Can I Freeze These Pancakes?

Absolutely! Just let them cool down first, then pop them into the freezer. To prevent them from sticking together, freeze them in a single layer or use parchment paper between layers in a freezer bag. Oh, and try to get out as much air as you can before sealing the bag.
