  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the egg yolks, flour, cottage cheese, butter, sugar, salt, and lemon zest; stir to combine.
  2. In another mixing bowl, add the egg whites; beat until soft peaks form.
  3. Gently fold the whites into the batter just until blended.
  4. Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat.
  5. Spray griddle with nonstick cooking spray.
  6. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto griddle; lower heat to medium-low.
  7. Cook pancake until the top is covered with small bubbles and the bottom is lightly browned.
