Breakfast Series: Russian Syrniki

20140711-145638-53798165.jpg
Syrniki is a traditional Russian breakfast meal (you can surely eat it anytime) and normally served with sour cream or some sort of jam or both.

Definitely one of my favourite effortless breakfasts!

 

Ingredients

 

1 pack of cottage cheese/ creamy quark

4 tbsp flour + 1 extra cup

1 egg

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp sunflower oil

fresh strawberry

100 ml sour cream

 

How To

 

In a large bowl place quark, sugar, salt, flour and egg and mix well. 

Put a plate with flour near you and start forming small balls out the mixture dipping it in the flour to make it non-sticky, eventually turning them into small little pancakes.

In a large frying pan heat 2 tbsp of oil on a medium heat and cook your syrniki on each side until cooked and golden (normally about a couple of min. on each side).

Repeat with the rest of the mixture. 

Serve immediately with sour cream, berry of your jam and/or jam.

Serves 2

 

INGREDIENTS

 

300 g good sandwich bread

4 eggs

70 ml milk

70 ml thin (pouring) cream

3 drops natural vanilla extract

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 pinch salt

2 tsp sugar

40 g butter or 2 tbsp neutral cooking oil

maple syrup/butter/berry of your choice to serve

 

PREPARATION

 

Cut the loaf into 2-3 cm slices. The loaf can be fresh, but slightly stale is even better.

Mix all of the other ingredients, except the butter or oil, with  a fork or a whisk until combined.

Soak the bread in this mixture for a few minutes on each side until the slices are fully saturated.

 

COOKING AND SERVING

 

Brown the soaked slices in a frying pan over medium heat in the butter or oil for 2-3 min each side.

The slices should be golden on the outside but still moist on the inside.

Serve with maple syrup, butter and some berry.
