Cottage cheese is mild in taste, and easy to break down for mixes, so it provides a very easy way of adding protein to your baked goods while enhancing their taste. This recipe is very simple and calls for eggs, sugar, butter, corn starch and of course, cottage cheese. The mixture will be light and fluffy, and the end result will be the same. Depending on the size of your muffins, baking time is between twenty and twenty-five minutes, so they're sure to be ready by brunch time.

  • 125 grams flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 180 grams brown sugar
  • 25 grams butter

  2. Beat well, and let rest while you prepare the filling.
  3. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  4. Use a fork to mash the cottage cheese. Stir in the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, butter, and cornstarch. Mix until creamy.
