Syrniki | Russian Chef | Russian Cuisine

The best breakfast on earth! Believe me.

Syrniks (singular: syrnik).

You'll need (for 4 syrniks):
  • 250 g cottage cheese;
  • 1 egg;
  • 65 g flour (about 1/2 cup);
  • 45 g sugar (about 1/4 cup);
  • sunflower oil.
Mix together all the ingredients and make 4 flatten balls. Roll them in some flour.

Warm up the pan with some sunflower oil and fry syrniks on a slow fire to the colour as seen on a picture.

You can eat it with cream, caramel or jam. Good with tea, coffee or orange juice. Amazing breakfast)).

* You need a cottage cheese like this one:

  2. Sir is Ukrainian word not Russian.

    Excuse me, where have you read this?
