  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Blend the cottage cheese, sour cream, the 1 tablespoon of honey, vanilla extract, and salt in a blender until very smooth. 
  3. Step 3

    Beat eggs in a medium bowl until frothy. Beat in the cottage cheese-sour cream mixture.
  4. Step 4

    In a small bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Gradually stir into cheese-egg mixture, careful not to overmix.
  5. Step 5

    Lightly dust the banana slices with some flour and set aside.
  6. Step 6

    Brush a griddle pan with a small amount of vegetable oil. Heat over low heat, then increase to medium heat until a few drops of water splashed on hot surface continue to sizzle for several seconds. Drop batter by spoonfuls (or a scant 1/8 cup measure) onto the hot griddle. Immediately top each pancake with one of the prepared banana slices in the center.
  7. Step 7

    Spoon about a small amount of batter on top of each banana slice. Cook pancake 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until bubbles form on the surface. 
  8. Step 8

    Turn pancakes over and cook another minute or so until golden and puffed. Remove pancakes to an ovenproof platter and keep warm in the oven set at the lowest setting. Lightly re-oil griddle pan as needed and continue to cook the remaining pancakes.
  9. Step 9

    In a small saucepan, heat the remaining 1/2 cup honey and the 2 tablespoons lemon juice over low heat just until warmed, about 2 minutes.  
  10. Step 10

    Serve the hot pancakes on the platter or warmed individual plates. Pass the warm honey-lemon syrup for drizzling on top.
