Yes, it’s happening! I am slowly running out of the recipes for pancakes. Thankfully there are still some left in the interweb. This recipe come from here. I have mixed feelings about these pancakes. I think I am not a big fan of orange taste in them. I still think it is a good option for a breakfast though, especially that it seems to be healthier than the other “normal” pancake’s recipe. Try it!

Ingredients for 12 pieces:

3/4 cup cottage cheese
3 large eggs, separated
4 tbsp butter,  melted
1 tbsp orange juice
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of ground cinnamon
1 tbsp orange zest or 1/8 teaspoon orange oil

Place the cottage cheese, egg yolks, melted butter, and orange juice in a food process or blender, and process until the cottage cheese is smooth, about 30 seconds. Add the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon and process again. Scrape the mixture into a medium bowl and stir in the orange zest or oil. Let this mixture rest for 10 minutes.

In the bowl of your electric mixer, whip the egg whites until they’re stiff but not dry. Use a rubber spatula to stir a spoonful of the whites into the batter to loosen it, and then gently fold in the rest of the whites.

Pour the batter in 1/3-cupfuls onto a preheated pan. Cook the pancakes till golden brown on both sides.
