Farmer’s cheese, which resembles ricotta cheese in some ways but is drier and crumblier, is used to make syrniki pancakes. Farmer’s cheese works well when combined with a little flour, sugar, and eggs to create dishes for breakfast and dessert, such as syrniki.


  • 1 lb farmer’s cheese 
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cup all purpose flour 
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Optional: ½ cup raisins
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Making the batter: If your farmer’s cheese isn’t crumbly, drain it first before using a fork to break it up into little pieces in a large dish. View notes.
  2. Mix thoroughly after adding 2 eggs. Add 1/2 cup flour, sugar, and salt . Using a fork, break up any flour or farmer’s cheese clumps as you thoroughly combine. When using raisins, add them. Instead of being thin like traditional pancake batter, the “batter” will be thick like dough.

  3. assemble the syrniki pancakes: You will dredge the pancakes in a small bowl that has been prepared with about 13 cups of flour.
  4. Scoop out roughly 14 cups of pancake batter at a time. To form a little patty, gently press the dough with your hands. Sprinkle flour on both sides of the pancake. Before beginning to cook the syrniki pancakes, shake off any excess flour and set aside.
  5. Syrniki pancakes should be cooked as follows: Heat 3–4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a big skillet, then use a spatula to carefully add the flour-dusted cheese pancakes to the pan. Cook on medium-low heat for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown on all sides. 
  6. Cook the pancakes sparingly; if required, in two or three batches.
  7. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar or drizzle with maple syrup, honey, or whipped cream to serve. Alternatively, try eating these syrniki the old-fashioned Russian way, with sour cream and your preferred fruit preserves.
