Waiter, there's something in my breakfast

As I've said before, we're big breakfast fans. Not during the week, because even good breakfast doesn't outweigh some extra sleep time for me, but to make up for it, we go all out on the weekends. Usually Siim is the pancake chef and I'm more on eggs and sandwiches, but today I made pancakes in a new way - specially for the WTSIM.

Buttermilk, banana and raspberry pancakes:

2 eggs
300 g creamed cottage cheese with real vanilla
~150 ml buttermilk
~100 g flour
1/tsp baking-soda
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 ripe banana, peeled and diced
fresh raspberries
oil for cooking
sour-cream for serving.

Mix the eggs, 1/2 of the buttermilk, creamed cottage cheese, salt and butter. Add the flour and baking soda. Stir until even. Add the rest of the buttermilk. The dough should be more on the thick side. Add the bananas and raspberries and gently mix.
Heat the pan and the oil and use a table spoon for making the pancakes, the pancakes have to be small and thick, so a table spoonful of dough is just right.
Cook the pancakes on medium heat, otherwise they will burn (it takes them longer to cook through because of the fruit).

Serve with sourcream and fresh raspberries.

Hi Kat! The addition of raspberries sounds wonderful - I must try mine with berries in too.
