Cottage cheese Pancakes with lemon syrup

You probably know that saying:

When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila and salt!

Let’s skip the alcohol today. 😉

Instead I turned those lemons into a sweet and sour syrup that goes so well with fluffy pancakes made with cottage cheese!


Don’t worry! It might sound adventurous but it tastes like a classic! Get your pots and pans ready for those recipes:


Lemon Syrup

makes about 500ml

  • 240 ml lemonjuice
  • 240 ml water
  • 200g sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch


Combine all ingredients in a little pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes or until it thickens. Remove from heat and pour the syrup in a clean bottle while it’s still hot.




Cottage cheese pancakes

makes about 18

  • 120g flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 225g cottage cheese
  • 120 ml milk
  • 2 tbsp oil

Mix flour, baking soda, salt and sugar in a little bowl. In a second bowl combine eggs, cottage cheese, milk and oil. Add flour mix and stir until combined.

Heat a large pan over medium heat. Spoon little amounts of batter into the hot pan and cook from both sides. Best served with lemon syrup.


Easy peasy, lemon squeeze…  ready, set, go & get yourself some lemons to try this dish!

Have a lovely Easter weekend and HAPPY #PANCAKEAPRIL!
