Ingredients
  • Serving suggestion:
  • 2 cups strawberries, chopped into quarters
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon best-quality vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Directions
  • Put the strawberries into a bowl and sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and sugar. Stir before covering with plastic wrap and leaving to steep while you make the cheesecakelets.

  • Mix the egg yolks with the sugar, beating well. Add the vanilla, cottage cheese, and flour. Then, in another bowl, whisk the whites until frothy with a hand whisk and fold into the cottage cheese mixture.

  • Heat a smooth griddle or nonstick skillet and dollop the batter onto it make cakelets of about 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Each cheesecakelet will take a minute or so to firm up underneath, then you should flip it and cook the other side, and remove to a warmed plate when ready.

  • Turn the strawberries in the ruby syrup they've made and squish some pieces with a fork at the same time. Serve with the hot cheesecakelets.
