Pancakes at 3 AM revisited

I've been having trouble sleeping. I get to sleep fine but no matter what time I go to bed I wake up at about 3 AM. I just lay there and start to think too much and that is never a good thing. So I've been getting up and making pancakes.

Here's my latest version...

By coincidence, today, March 31st, is Oranges & Lemons Day.

Shelly's Cottage Cheese Lemon Pancakes with Orange Marmalade

1/2 cup Cottage Cheese (I use pre-mixed cottage cheese with pineapple)
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons Whole Wheat Flour (I use Arrowhead Mills Multigrain Pancake Mix)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Lemon Pudding Mix, dry
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Orange Marmalade (I use Smucker's Simply Fruit), nuked

Whiz in mini food processor. Spray pan with non-stick spray. Cook on low till bubbles appear, flip. Cook till done. Nuke SF Orange Marmalade for 25 seconds so it drizzles well. Serve each pancake with a drizzle of warmed marmalade. Makes 4 small pancakes (pictured) or 8 silver dollar size.

These are very tender pancakes so smaller is better for flipping. They won't get any style points but they taste yummy. OMG they are soooo good! They totally remind me of those French crepes at IHOP.

You'll flip for these other Eggface Pancake creations:

Shelly's Pistachio Cottage Cheese Pancakes (aka Leprechaun Pancakes)
Shelly's Banana Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Sliced Strawberries
Shelly's Potato-less Potato Pancakes
Shelly's Blueberry Pineapple Cottage Cheese Pancakes
Shelly's Chocolate Monkey Pancakes

When you say cottage cheese pre-mixed with pineapple, do you mean Cottage Doubles?

Nope. Cottage Cheese & Pineapple. At your supermarket. Brands: Knudsen, Breakstones, Mine is a local dairy Driftwood, some stores have their own brand. Check it out it's with the regular cottage cheese.

Michelle, ANOTHER recipe of yours added to my arsenal! I've made cottage cheese pancakes, but my word, I tried adding vanilla pudding mix to them tonight and they were AMAZING! I did end up having to add 2 tbsp milk to it to get it well blended (my little Magic Bullet was chuggin along roughly), but they are so yummy!

The pudding definitely helps the consistency and tenderness, and the vanilla was a great base to warmed sf strawberry preserves. I still have 3 left, can't wait to reheat them for the morning!
