Cottage Cakes with Applesauce

Courtesy of Bethany Weed

1 1/2 c. cottage cheese
4 eggs, beaten
4 T. brown sugar
4 T. butter, melted
1/2 c. + 4 T. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Drain cottage cheese. In medium bowl, mix cottage cheese, eggs, brown sugar, and butter. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt. Stir in dry ingredients until combined. Heat griddle over medium heat. Use cooking spray/melt butter to grease griddle. Drop batter onto hot griddle. Cook about 2-4 minutes each side. Serve with applesauce or light powdered sugar.

***These are basically pancakes with cottage cheese in them. Soooo good. I know some people do not like cottage cheese, but it's not really noticeable in the finished product.***
***I had no idea how to "drain cottage cheese"; I put it in a colander, lightly rinsed it, and then let it drain. Seemed to work***
***I rarely do the separate-bowl-for-dry-ingredients thing. I added them all to the wet ingredients one after the other, and then stirred them in together***
***I used a frying pan, not a griddle, because I hate washing my griddle***
***This recipe would probably only fill two, maybe three, people...you might want to double it***
