Breakfast Series: Russian Syrniki

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!




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.
