Cook time 15 minutes
Servings 4


200g cottage cheese
200ml sour cream
3 eggs
1 cups self-raising flour
½ tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tsp nutmeg

10g butter, melted
30g cheddar, grated

Cottage Cheese Pikelets


Whisk together the cottage cheese, eggs and sour cream.

In another bowl sift the flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Make a well in the centre and add the wet ingredients. Fold to combine without over mixing.

Heat a pan over a medium heat. Brush with melted butter and dollop in dessert spoonfuls of the pikelet batter. Sprinkle over a little cheese and cook until the bubbles begin to pop on top and the pikelets are golden on the bottom. Flip and cook for a further 30 seconds – 1 minute on the other side.

In another pan add the bacon and bring the heat up to slowly render the fat. This will ensure the bacon is crispy. Cook for 4-5 minutes.

Serve the pikelets with bacon and drizzle of maple syrup.
