Babushka's Russian Syrniki, rustic, creamy and delicious. Made from Tvorog, Quark, or Farmers Cheese is a delicious Cheese Pancake. Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, topped with sour cream and jam. One of my favorite breakfast recipes.

1lb/500g Tvorog Farmer’s Cheeseтворог
½teaspoonsalt to taste
½cupflourplus ⅓ cup flour for floured surface
In a bowl, mix the Tvorog, eggs, sugar and salt until combined.
Add ½ cup of flour and mix together. The mixture will be very very sticky.
Place ⅓ cup of flour on a work surface.. Make small balls of Tvorog - about 2-3 tablespoons - rolling them like small meat balls on the floured surface. Flatten with your palm, making them into a patty.
Heat oil over medium-high heat in a frying pan. The oil is hot enough when you flick a bit of flour into it and it sizzles.
Fry the Tvorog patties until they are golden brown and flip over. The coating will be crispy on the outside, and creamy on the inside.
Remove from frying pan and place onto a paper towel. Serve immediately with sour cream and jam.
This recipe will make about 12 Syrniki Cheese Pancakes.
