A slightly modified recipe for a sort of medieval omelette. Orginaly this would have been seen on tables pre 16th century, on the tables of (specifically German) nobles and poorer folk with access to flour. It is basically a fried egg, but the weird addition of flour, and being fried not baked, makes it a 'flat cake'


  • 2 tablespoons cottage cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Beat the egg and cheese together. Add the flour and beat until smooth. Heat the butter in a large skillet. Add the egg mixture and cook until egg is firm. Flip once. Cut the fritter into small pieces in the pan using a spatula. Cook until browned. Remove the fritters from the pan and arrange on a serving plate. Sprinkle with sugar. Serve hot.
