    3. Cook the pancakes until the cottage cheese pancakes’ edges are set and have a golden bottom. Flip the pancake carefully and cook for another minute or two.
    4. Place the first batch of pancakes on a plate, and repeat the steps until you use up all the batter.

The cottage cheese pancake batter is thinner than other pancakes, so it’s best to use a nonstick pan for cooking. 

  • Make sure to cook the pancakes in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Overcrowding will make it harder for the pancakes to set and get crispy edges. 
  • The pancake batter doesn’t bubble up like a typical pancake batter. Keep an eye on the color of the pancakes to measure their doneness. 
  • Refrigerate any extra pancakes in an airtight container for a max of 5 days.
