Pfannkuchen!

Lately I've been on a cottage cheese kick. It is just so delicious! But a girl can/should only eat so much of it straight from the carton, so I needed a plan for using some of it up.

Glenn didn't have school today, so we went running this morning, and then I made pancakes (aka Glenn's most favorite food in the world). AND THEY WERE SO GOOD! They were blueberry-cottage cheese pancakes, and they were amazing. One of my least favorite things in the world are flat, pale pancakes. These were fluffy and golden brown, spiked with cinnamon, loaded with blueberries, and tangy and moist from the cottage cheese.

I got the recipe here, and mostly followed it, but I used wheat flour, and it made them so good.
p.s. Glenn still says he likes my oatmeal pancakes the best, but these were my favorites I've ever made. fyi.

  2. Annie, it means pancakes in German! Glenn took German in high school. Naturally, he calls them Pfannkuchen instead of pancakes.

    2nd- cottage cheese pancakes are the best! that's how i make them too! we've started adding like a half cup oatmeal to them too and it's like a perfect mix between the oatmeal and cottage cheese recipes.

    3rd- i dare you to try adding half a can blueberry pie filling to blueberry pancakes. it's out of this world!
