Cheesecakelets with Strawberry Sauce

» Brought to you by


  • 2 cups strawberries chopped into quarters

  • 0.5 teaspoon Balsamic vinegar

  • 0.5 teaspoon Sugar

  • 3 Eggs yolks and whites separated

  • 2 tablespoons Sugar

  • 1 teaspoon best-quality vanilla extract

  • 1 cup cottage cheese

  • 0.33 cup all-purpose Flour


  • 1.

    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.

  • 2.

    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.

  • 3.

    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.

  • 4.

    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.
