Cottage Cheese Pancakes

This is my favorite recipe for pancakes.  It is a good way to use your left over, expired (really! it's okay), tubs of cottage cheese.  They are so creamy, too. 
This recipe is easily turned into low fat.  Just use low fat or fat free cottage cheese and use only egg whites.

3/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup cottage cheese
2/3 cup milk
2 large eggs whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 teaspoons vegetable oil

Put together flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.  Mix together with a wire whisk.

Add cottage cheese, milk, eggs, and vanilla together with flour mixture.  Stir together with spoon.  Batter is supposed to be lumpy. 

Spread some vegetable oil on a griddle or in a pan.  Take a paper towel to spread the oil.  Fry for a few minutes on each side.  The pancakes will be golden brown on the outside becuase of the sugar.  Enjoy!
