Mix eggs, salt and sugar in a blender, add milk and flower and continue to mix. Add oil and mix until smooth. Heat a frying pan, add oil for every pancake. Pour the mixture thinly into the frying pan, turn over and fry until ready.

Strain cottage cheese if it contains liquid. Mix with eggs, add sugar and 1 drop of vanilla essence (optional).
