Apple Cheese Pancakes




Mary-Jo likes to serve these pancakes with local maple syrup and homemade blueberry or strawberry preserves. Most guests can not decipher the ingredients and are surprised when they hear the recipe.


  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup grated fresh apple
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


In large bowl, mix apple, lemon juice, honey, egg yolks, cottage cheese, flour, cinnamon and salt together. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites into batter.

Pour pancakes, approximately 3 inches in size, on greased hot griddle and fry until brown on both sides. Serve with your favorite syrup and butter.

Note: To make low-fat pancakes, use low-fat cottage cheese and substitute 7 egg whites for 4 eggs. This recipe serves 4
