So, these “Cloud Pancakes” get most of their texture from small curd cottage cheese, it might sound weird, but it actually kind of works.
This is the second time I’ve used cottage cheese in pancake batter, (the first time was with these carrot cottage cheese pancakes) and both times, the pancakes came out fairly interesting. To jump to the recipe, click here, and for the original recipe, go here.
Like the carrot pancakes, these were also very very soft. Almost a little too soft, I like my pancakes with just a bit of toothsomeness. The other thing was that the overall flavor was kind of plain with a hint of cheesiness. It was really neither savory nor sweet and I would’ve preferred a more definitive flavor profile one way or another.
I ended up eating these topped with nutella, which made them delicious, although, nutella generally has that effect on most things. If I were to make these again, I’d definitely add some zest to the batter, orange or lemon depending on how I was feeling, or maybe even some apple chunks. Either way, these pancakes definitely need a kick in the pants to earn some more stackies.
