Our Pond Mountain Inn guests love these pancakes! After emailing the recipe to so many of our guests we decided to make it easier for everyone. These delicate pancakes at this bed and breakfast are wonderfully light and fluffy – Vermont Maple syrup complements the tangy tartness of the fresh squeezed lemon.
Kay, one of the hosts at Pond Mountain Inn, is known for creating extraordinary breakfasts.

Beat the egg whites until firm, then set aside.
In a food processor or blender, combine the egg yolks, oil, salt, baking powder, cottage cheese, maple syrup, lemon juice, lemon zest, and flour, blending until smooth. Pour the batter into a bowl. Fold in the egg whites.
Meanwhile, heat a nonstick griddle or large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat, then lightly brush with melted butter or oil.
Pour the batter, about ¼ cup for each pancake, onto the cooking surface.
Cook until the tops are bubbly, then turn and cook until the bottoms are golden browned.
