I can honestly say that at first, the idea of cottage cheese and oatmeal pancakes did not instantly ignite my taste buds. However, their redeeming qualities of being flour free, super healthy and full of protein convinced me to give this recipe a go.
I was pleasantly surprised. Once ground up, oatmeal has a similar texture to flour, and the cottage cheese provides the pancakes a yummy tang.
Our sunny Autumn morning started with a coffee at Soldier On in Prahran, then into the city for a New York style lunch at Bowery to Williamsburg. A photo walk took us through China Town’s laneways, then over to Curtin House for a browse of one of Melbourne’s best (and remaining) bookshops, Metropolis. Finally, what better way to end a glorious Melbourne afternoon than a cheeky donut or two at Shortstop.
Baked Donna Hay’s flourless carrot cake with cream cheese icing. She’s not wrong, it’s certainly beyond delicious. Find the recipe here.
Happy weekend baking!
