Before we start:
Pancake is a kind of dish that is probably universal. I mean if you go to any country in the world you are likely to find pancakes in their cuisine.

Pancakes have a long history. In the past, they were believed to be an extremely nutritious food. This is because they combine in themselves a rich spectrum of nutrients - carbohydrates from flour, proteins and fat from eggs and milk, as well as many vitamins and minerals.

Today, pancakes may have gained a reputation of a high-calorie food which can contribute to weight gain. However, it is only true if you eat too many pancakes. Well, this is true for any kind of food.

Too much of anything is not healthy!

Pancakes, in fact, are a very nutritionally balanced dish, as I have mentioned before. The nutritional value becomes even greater if you add some good filling to the pancake.

There are hundreads of varieties of pancakes. They can vary both in the type of dough of the pancake as well as in the filling.

The recipe we are going to look at contains cottage cheese filling, which adds even more high-quality protein to the dish.

We will also use wholemeal flour instead of plain white flour. Wholemeal flour contains much more proteins, vitamins and minerals than plain flour.

Here is some nutritional information about the cottage cheese pancakes:

  • rich in protein
  • rich in high-quality carbohydrates
  • rich in B vitamins, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Selenium, Sodium, Calcium
