Cheese Latkes with Raspberry Sauce

Written by chanie on December 19th, 2011

If you follow my blog, you know that I’m not much of a baker. You also know that I’m working hard to stick to my diet plan. Which might explain why I’m not about to post a recipe for delicious, chewy, deep-fried jelly donuts or crunchy golden potato latkes. Instead, I decided to whip up a sort of deconstructed jelly donut in the form of cheese latkes with raspberry sauce. These fun mini cottage cheese pancakes are reminiscent of the classic chanukah treat with just a few less calories. Fry them up nice and golden, dust with powdered sugar, and don’t forget the whip cream!

    I actually make these with fat free cottage cheese and fry them in Pam spray.

    These look delectable! Such a clever take on the typical doughnut – and I’m sure far tastier. Amazing!

    I love that you used whole wheat flour and cottage cheese. I can totally make (and eat!) these.

    As an update, I made these with non-wheat flour for my nephew (he needs gluten-free) and they were a hit across the board, even with those who don’t have celiac disease.

      I’m glad! What type of non-wheat, gluten-free flour did you use?

      Hi my name is Rachel and I”m also having issues with glutens. May I ask what kind of flour did you use to make it gluten free?

      was there anything ells that you changed?

      Thank you so much for your reply.

        Hi Rachel, I’m not sure where you read about these being gluten free. Unfortunately, I did not make them with gluten free flour but you may use soy flour or perhaps almond meal would work.

        Good Luck!
