I have a new obsession: baking. It has been going on for a while now and I am making bagels right now! I will post the recipe tomorrow, and maybe pictures. I posted an pretty neat feed about baking with lots of techniques, tips and recipes. Hope you'll enjoy it.

Farmer's cheese lemon pancakes

This pancakes were eaten before I could even think about taking a picture. The next time I will be ready but, in any case, it's only a bunch of pancakes! Everybody knows how they look like...

Servings: 2 (4-5 mini pancakes)

  • 1/4 cup of farmer cheese*
  • 1/4 cup of organic whole milk
  • 1 cage-free egg
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1/3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Zest of 1/2 organic lemon
  • Butter to grease the pan
  • Organic maple syrup, unsweetened jam or honey to serve
*cottage or ricotta cheese would work as well

  • Whisk together farmer cheese, milk, egg, sugar, vanilla and salt in this order. Add flour, baking powder and lemon zest until all ingredients are blend into a thick batter.
  • Drop the pancake batter on a hot, greased pan, two at a time. When a couple of bubbles appear on the surface, gently flip pancakes and cook until golden (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Serve side-up with maple syrup, jam (e.g., raspberry, strawberry) or honey.
