I am giving this 4 stars based on the fact that it needed a little bit of work. But the final product deserves 5 for sure! I read the reviews of everyone else on here and decided to plan ahead and work with the recipe so as to avoid a flat dense pancake. I looked at a few others and these were the changes I made: I used 4 eggs, 1 cup of 2% milk (what I had on hand), and 2/3 cup flour. The rest I left the same. I did however use 2% cottage cheese since that is what I had as well. I also allowed the cake pan to get hot in the preheating oven for about 3 minutes first after reading some reviews on another recipe. Then I sprayed it down and poured in the batter. It cooked for about 12 minutes and was PERFECT! It puffed up so beautifully and the entire thing was light and fairly thick. The sauce was gritty by itself but GREAT on the pancake. And the strawberries were a nice addition. I also shaved a bit of chocolate on the top and a dollop of fat free whip cream to top it off. It was almost too pretty to eat! I wanted to add that it is important not to open the oven until the time is up or you run the risk of it deflating.
