Here’s a delicious new brunch idea…and it’s pretty, too!

I just love this dish!  It’s very soft and fluffy – eggy, cheesy, light.  You could add any seasonings you had on hand – even some cooked broccoli, green peppers, cooked sausage.

A fragrant freshly baked coffee cake and a fruit salad and brunch is done!

I’ve made it for supper, served with whole wheat english muffins and tomato slices.



Vegetable cooking spray
6 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup milk
1 cup cottage cheese
4 ounces cream cheese cubed
1 cup cubed sharp cheddar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9×9-inch baking pan with vegetable spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Whisk in flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, seasoning, milk, and cottage cheese. Stir in cubed cheeses. Pour into greased 9×9 inch pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until puffed, golden and set. Makes eight servings.

    Only just stumbled across your blog and I really like the idea behind it… Keep it going, I wouldn’t mind more light cake / cookie recipes :D!

    This recipe looks amazing as well and I am definitely going to try it out, probably with less cheese though :).

    I just made this recipe to the letter, preheated double oven with no uneven baking problems and it wasn’t even close to done in 35 minutes. I continued baking another 20 minutes before it was cooked.

    Making this dish now and I’m on my 3rd 10 minute extra cooking time after cooking the 35 minutes. How did anyone have a finished dish at 35 minutes? And I cooked for a living. I’m hoping the taste is worth all the time it’s taking.
