Cheese Pancakes (from Personal Trainer)
Place the cottage cheese in a bowl and gently break it up. Add the sugar and lemon juice in the bowl.
- 3 and 1/2 ounces cottage cheese
2 and 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon beaten egg
2 teaspoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cooking oil
1 Tablespoon raisins
Gradually add the beaten egg and stir it in well with a rubber spatula. Add the all purpose flour to the bowl. Next, add the baking powder and mix it in.
Heat the oil in a frying pan over low heat. If your pan isn't big enough to cook all the batter at once, use only as much oil as you need for the amount you are cooking.
(A quick note: This refers to when the stove is at a low heat setting. On a gas stove, this is when the flames are not high enough to touch the pan.)
Put the batter into the frying pan for each pancake. Top each dollop of batter with a few raisins.
Cook both sides of the pancakes, turning each one over when the edges of the batter begin to brown.
Transfer the pancakes to a plate. They're ready to eat!
Makes 2 servings.
Utensils needed: mixing bowl, rubber spatula, frying pan, kitchen scale, measuring spoons and pancake turning spatula.
Time: 20 minutes
Tips & Warnings:
When cooking the batter, heat it slowly so it doesn't burn.
The batter is quite runny, so if it isn't cooked well if you turn it over, you will make a mess.
For the best results, wait until the batter turns golden brown before turning it over.
Substitutions and Variations:
Try using other toppings like walnuts or peanuts to accent the flavor of the fritter.
These are bite-sized cheese cakes topped with raisins. Your whole breakfast will cost about 32 cents.
