  1. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Whisk in the eggs, milk, honey and cottage cheese. Stir in the raspberries.
  2. Put a little butter in a nonstick frying pan set over a medium-low heat. When it starts to sizzle, spoon 3 tbsp batter into the pan to create a small round pancake. Depending on the size of your pan, you will be able to cook 2-3 pancakes at the same time.
  3. Fry for 3-4 mins until the underside is golden, then flip over and fry for another 3-4 mins, until golden and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter, until you have 12 pancakes.
  4. Serve in stacks of 3 pancakes with 1 tbsp of jam spooned over, a dollop of yogurt, a few berries and a dusting of icing sugar.
