The farmers market has been full of fresh local blueberries for the last week or so and I have certainly been enjoying them. I have mostly been having them for breakfast on plain yogurt or cottage cheese with some maple syrup syrup on top. Over the long weekend I decided that it was time to do something else with them and the first thing that came to mind was pancakes. Blueberry pancakes are a staple every blueberry season and I seem to do something new each time. I had recently come across the idea of a cottage cheese pancake and I thought that they would be even better with some blueberries. The cottage cheese pancakes had a bit more liquid in the batter than I am normally used to but they turned out great! They were nice and moist and light an fluffy and good! Most of the cottage cheese had melted into the pancakes but some of the larger pieces were still visible and they added a really nice texture. Of course I smothered the pancakes in maple syrup which goes really well with blueberries. What a great way to kick off blueberry season!
Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 2 tablespoons butter (melted, or oil)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and sugar in a large bowl.
- Mix the cottage cheese, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla extract in another large bowl.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
- Mix in the blueberries.
- Heat a pan and melt a touch of butter in it.
- Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into the pan and cook until the surface starts to bubble and the bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
- Flip the pancake and cook the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.

Yummy! Haven't the blueberries been fantastic this year?
I've never had cottage cheese pancakes but now you've got me craving some!
These look great, and thanks for a small batch pancake recipe.

I love blueberries and using them for pancakes are the best thing to do. Adding cottage cheese was something i dint know. Anyways looks tempting!
I would like to have one piece 😀
Great idea I have tried the Ricotta pancakes and the texture turned me off, I gotta try this!
Winner! As is, of course, serving it with real maple syrup! 🙂
Just wonderful Kevin. I never can resist breakfasts like this!
That's really cool. I've never added cottage cheese to pancakes before!
Now…that is really different. I haven't heard of cottage cheese in a dish like this! Nice work.
How gorgeous is that!
Nice. Blueberry pancakes sounds really good right about now. They're really in abundance right now. It's it great!

If it works with ricotta, it's gotta work with cottage. Sounds like these would be some fluffy cakes!

umm .. YUMMY ! i love the idea of cottage cheese in pancakes!
i love it by itself with blueberries, so i bet i would love these pancakes! i think i know what i will be making this weekend for breakfast!
These look like they would be addictive. The addition of cottage cheese would make them all the better.
I'm a huge fan of both cottage cheese pancakes and blueberry pancakes…I can't believe I never thought to combine them.
Now I can't wait for the weekend to come so I can give these a try (not that I wasn't already wishing for the weekend…that starts by, oh, 10am Monday).
Great pic, too, by the way~

they looks delicious. I just read an article about how good blueblerries are good for you. They contain more anti-oxidants than acai. I've been buying acai for a while for its nutritional value while blueberries are even much better. I've been addicted since then. And they're in season. Gotta make some blueberry pancake for breakfast tomorrow for my man. Thanks for sharing
I love blueberry pancakes and the abundance of berries right now means more pancakes!! I've done the cottage cheese many times and was skeptical at first but love!!
What a delicious breakfast! I was craving blueberries recently and had thought about blueberry pancakes. You posted this just in time! Thank you 🙂
I'll take some tomorrow at 7:30am. Thanks! (ha ha)
Nicely done, Kevin.
Beautiful! I've been eating lots of frozen blueberries lately, can't wait until we can get some fresh ones.

You think frozen berries will make it mushy? I've got a few punnets in my freezer. And it's difficult to get cottage cheese where I stay, I'll probably just use cheddar cheese.
mmmm. yummy! with cheese 🙂
Blessed Homemaker: Frozen blueberries would certainly work. Just mix them into the batter last while still frozen.
I've never heard of putting cottage cheese in pancakes! I bet it's good and even better for you!
It's too bad my BF won't eat blueberries. These look great!
Blessed Homemaker says
Finally made these and they are really tasty! Definitely a keeper!
i stumbled on your website through tastepotting. i tried these they were delicious! Thanks!
I just made these and give them two thumbs way up! Thanks for the recipe!
Just made these last week and wanted to tell you that they were by far the fluffiest pancakes I've ever made! The texture is as light as a feather and the flavor is just right. They soaked up the maple syrup like it was going out of style – YUM. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!
