World Breakfasts: Syrniki


This week’s stop on our breakfast tour of the world is Russia and the morning favourite, Syrniki.

The name syrniki is derived from the transliteration syr, meaning ‘cheese’, which is the key ingredient in these pancakes. Syrniki are the breakfast of choice across Eastern Europe, are really easy to make and can be enjoyed all year round. Serve with a side of jam, sour cream, honey, butter or apple sauce to set you up right for the day.

Once you’ve got the hang of this recipe, try adding raisins to the mixture for a bit of extra flavour.

What you’ll need(Serves 4):

500g cottage cheese

150g all-purpose flour

2 eggs

2 tbsp sugar (or vanilla sugar)

Coconut oil or vegetable oil to fry

Pinch of salt

What you’ll need to do:

1. Pour the cottage cheese and egg into a food processor or bowl (a food processor makes life a little easier) and combine until smooth. Add the sugar and salt and mix a little more to combine.

2. If you used a food processor for Step 1, transfer the cheese mixture into a bowl and add about half a cup (120ml) of water. If you hand mixed the cottage cheese and eggs by hand, simply add water to the bowl you are using. Add the flour and work the ingredients to form a dough.

3. Lightly flour your worktop. Form the dough into golf ball-sized balls and roll them out into pancakes.

4. Put a frying pan over medium heat and warm the coconut oil. Fry the pancakes for about 2 minutes on one side until it turns golden brown. Flip the pancake and fry on low for a further 5-6 minutes.

5. Serve hot with a side of jam, sour cream, honey, butter or apple sauce.
