Source: Mommy Logan
- 5 large eggs
- 1 tbs sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup small-curd cottage cheese
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter, cut into small pieces
- 2 - 3 peaches or nectarines, sliced (optional)
- powdered sugar or maple syrup (optional)
- 1 cup sour cream (optional)
Place a 9 by 13-inch baking pan in the oven while it preheats. Meanwhile, in the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat eggs, sugar, and salt together until thick and about tripled in volume.
Add milk, cottage cheese, flour, and baking powder, then beat until well mixed. Add butter to the hot pan in the oven; when butter is melted, swirl it around to coat pan bottom. Pour egg batter into pan. Bake in oven until well browned and puffed high around sides, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven, cut into squares, and lift out with a wide spatula. Offer the fruit, powdered sugar, syrup, and sour cream as toppings for individual servings.
