These Russian Farmer Cheese Blueberry Syrniki/Pancakes (Творожные Сырники) make the perfect breakfast, lunch or a dessert. Nice and crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Serve with sour cream or jam, or both!
I was so excited to find Lifeway Old Fashioned Farmers Probiotic Farmer Cheese at the Sprouts Farmers Market recently.
First of all the Sprouts has the BEST, freshest, and most delicious produce at unbelievable prices. We bought cherries, peaches, apricots at 98 cents per pound! I was ‘On cloud nine‘!
Then I found the Lifeway Farmer cheese for Syrniki!
This particular farmer’s cheese is not as dry as the White cheese (Tvorog) from the Russian store so just add a bit more flour to it.
It works perfectly for the Syrniki!
As you can see I didn’t add blueberries to the Syrniki this time, but rather made a homemade fruit jam to go along with them. So Delicious!
This is how many I was able to make from the recipe below.
You can add more sugar if you like, it’s all up to you.
Cook on low and slow. I often cover the skillet with a lid so they cook better on the inside.
I bought White cheese (Tvorog) from the Russian store and decided to make the Traditional Syrniki! Syrniki are very popular in Slavik kitchens and have been enjoyed for many generations. My family Loves them!
One of the Secret ingredients that I always use for pancakes, muffins, cakes, and other sweets, is my beloved – Baileys’ Coffee Creamer – Crème Brulee!!! I have tried other flavors, but find this one is the Best, for us.
I Always have it on hand since I like it in my coffee daily! It gives an Excellent Flavor and Aroma to your baking goods as well, I prefer to use it instead of adding vanilla. Give it a try. I add it to my oatmeal with milk in the morning or with buckwheat and milk – Delicious!
Unfortunately, I can’t find this one at the store any longer, so use Vanilla extract that it always available.
When making Syrniki, pancakes, kotletki, or similar, try to make them smaller in size.
First, smaller is fool-proof, meaning it will be much easier for you to handle, flip, and will not fall apart.
Second, smaller cooks faster.
And third, smaller looks more Elegant on the plate, like someone took the time to make it “just right”!
There is a fourth reason, lol, smaller is better when you watch calories, you can portion what you eat better!
