Best Blueberry Cheese Pancakes Recipe
Waking up to a morning with someone making you a hearty breakfast and strong coffee/tea!!! That's bliss! But unfortunately since that's clearly not happening in any foreseeable future of mine, I do the next best thing! I make it myself - better that than Starbucks mocha whose flavor changes every time I order it - not every time pleasant! But then making a breakfast like this whose aroma fills the house right in the morning is worth getting up to anyways! This recipe of Blueberry pancakes made with cottage cheese is one of the best, I have tasted - EVER!
Best Blueberry Cheese Pancakes Recipe
Mornings are when you gotta eat like a king - lots of protein not necessarily fat but full of flavor that when you get up from breakfast you are full but not sluggish! The day seems worth looking forward to! That's the kind of breakfast I prefer and this pancake does that to you!  This recipe slightly adapted from Chef Simon Rimmer in which I reduced the fat content where it wont harm the flavor. Using Low fat cottage cheese , egg whites and low fat milk makes it not only nutritious but also low calorie. Adding blueberries or any fruit in a pancake is something which I absolutely love doing. I had some frozen blueberries on hand and it works best in this.
  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Serves: 2 people
  • Yields: About 6 large pancakes
Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 egg whites, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 stick (4 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk (low fat/ fat free also works)
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese (low fat/fat free is good too)
  • 1 generous cup blueberries
  • zest of 1 small lemon
Tips
For making Substitutions please refer my handy chart:
1) Baking substitutions
2) Egg Substitutions
Method
1. Mix the flour, soda and sugar together in a bowl.
2. In another bowl, combine the egg whites, butter, milk and cheese
3. Then stir the wet into the dry
4. Gently mix the dry and the wet together. Stir in the blueberries and lemon zest.
5. Mix until well blended.
6. Spoon some of the mixture (1/4 cup for medium pancakes and 1/2 cup for large) into a slightly warm skillet, greased lightly either with butter or oil. PAM spray works best.
7. Pat it down with the back of the cup into a rough circle
8. Cook for 1-2 minutes until golden.
9. Do the same on the other side. Repeat for rest of the pancakes.
Serve with fresh blueberries (optional) and maple syrup Best Blueberry Cheese Pancakes Recipe

What exactly are blueberries...where do we get them??Can we use raisins or grapes instead?

By sana on Aug 29, 2011

can I leave out the butter? or reduce the amount? will it affect the pancakes? thanks

By McKenzie on Jun 14, 2011

These are SO gooood. I used canola oil instead of butter and it worked out perfect (:

By sana on Oct 28, 2010

can i use grated paneer? :?:

By Sasha on Sep 3, 2010

Those pictures make me want pancakes, even though I know that I don't really like them. I used this recipe as inspiration to turn my whole wheat flax waffle mix into blueberry cottage cheese waffles and they were AMAZING!!! I have what seems like a freezer full of blueberries and I will definitely be doing this again.

:) I wonder what is the purpose of egg whites? For richer taste or for the stickiness? The answer will help me to find substitute best suited and what happens if I omit it altogether?

Well I use egg whites to substitute whole eggs - fewer calories and more protein. But in this recipe I think it is added for added richness. Just add in more milk instead :) Hope this helps :) --DK

By Parinita on May 20, 2010

hey DK, what's the substitute for egg whites in pancakes??? eggs not allowed :cry:

Pls refer this list for making egg free substitutions - http://chefinyou.com/egg-substitutes-cooking/ --DK

I altered two of your pancake recipes (this one and strawberry pancakes) and arrived at my own recipe! Mainly because blueberries were not available, and hubby is not a fan of strawberries, so made Apple pancakes instead! Added a dash of cinnamon too and it gave it a nice flavor. Thanks for your recipes, they are the reason why I got the confidence to make pancakes at home in the first place..it was really easy :) I'm gonna try banana nut pancake next :)

Dhivi , Can u also a post Indianised version of the this ?? I dont know where i can get self raising flour , lemon zest etc.,

Self rising flour is nothing but all purpose flour added with soda and salt. For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Lemon zest is nothing but grated peel of lemon - just grate it lightly - too much will make it bitter. Just the surface :) --DK

hey thanks for this yummy recipe...but i was wondering if i could get blue berries in India..and if not whats the next best substitute... pls pls PLSSSS help...i really wanna try this yummy recipe ...thanks :)

You can try strawberries, I am sure it will work equally well too :) --DK

Do you have any leftovers?I am coming to get them...

By nandita on Mar 11, 2010

I can imagine how delicious that tasted...its sad we don't get fresh or frozen blueberries here - i ask for dried ones when people come to India - but the fresh ones have a burst of flavour that's sorely missing in the dried :( WIsh i could dig a fork into that pile!

By Sharmila on Mar 11, 2010

The pancakes look great! I love them slightly thickish like you have made ... every bite has a good amount. :-)

By shankari on Mar 11, 2010

I have never used cottage cheese. What does it taste like?

By Srimathi on Mar 11, 2010

The pancakes look good. Thats what we make for breakfast for out daughter on weekends. We use the multi grain version that is sold in Trader Joe's.

By Joie de vivre on Mar 11, 2010

Yesterday, my son asked me for blueberry pancakes for dinner. Of course we couldn't have them last night, but I told him next week. I'll keep your recipe in mind.

Thanks Joie :) There is also a whole grain version of blueberry pancakes here in case it interests you - http://chefinyou.com/2009/07/wholewheat-blueberry-buttermilk-pancakes-fat-free/ --DK

By soumya on Mar 11, 2010

yummy!Looks delicious.Never tried pancake at home but sure would love to try this way :) .

Once you start making them, you find that they are so easy!You can always prepare the dry ingredients together the previous day and just add the wet in the morning! Makes life a little easier in the morning :) --DK
