This is an old brunch favourite in our house.  Great if you’re looking for something a little different and super simple, these Cottage Cheese and Apple Pancakes are really lovely.  The recipe is originally from the Moosewood Cookbook (the original one), which is probably my most used cookbook, full of wonderful vegetarian staples.

This revised vegetarian cookbook is essential for your kitchen

4 eggs, separated (use all or as many of the yolks as you’d like)
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup grated Granny Smith apple (about 1 large apple)
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of nutmeg

1. Beat the egg whites until stiff

2. Combine all other ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well.  Fold in egg whites.

3. Heat butter in skillet on medium high.  Drop batter into pan and fry on both sides will golden brown and firm.

4.  Serve immediately with maple syrup, fresh berries, and/or fruit compote!

Happy Pancake Tuesday!
