Farmers Cheese Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce {Сырники}

I make a lot of tvorog ( homemade ricotta, farmers cheese). So my favorite breakfast is syrniki that's farmer cheese pancakes. Syrniki (named for the Russian word, "syr," for cheese), which are fortified with tvorog, a fresh curd cheese similar in flavor and consistency to farmers' cheese. Syrniki are healthy and a wonderful food as for small children as for adults. 
      Ingredients:
2 cups ricotta or farmers cheese (homemade tvorog )
2 eggs
3 to 4 tbs sugar
4 tbs flour (I use Canadian flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
Salt to taste
Oil to saute (I used avocado oil)

   Blueberry Sauce:
2 cups fresh blueberries
3 tbs honey
1 tbs orange zest
2 tbs orange juice 

Put all ingredients together.
Mix well. Set aside for 15-20 min. It's much fluffier if you let it sit for a while.
Heat up oiled skillet first. Add a full table spoons of batter into a skillet.   Cook on med low heat, cover the skillet.
Pancakes will get puffy. Turn each pancake on the other side very gently.
Cook until golden brown and cooked inside. You can enjoy it with sour cream and sugar or with blueberry sauce.










Blueberry Sauce

2 cups fresh blueberries
3 tbs honey
1 tbs orange zest
2 tbs orange juice
Grade zest from the orange.
Add to the saucepan with blueberries.  
Add orange juice.
Bring to a boil and simmer on low stirring occasionally  for about 15 minutes. 
Enjoy warm!!!

  3. Tried this recipe this morning and it turned into a mess! They were really runny and nearly unflippable, didn't get puffy, and were incredibly too sweet! Maybe it is because I left the batter overnight in the refrigerator. Usually I make sirniki without baking soda or powder. Oh well!

    1. Hi, Polina,
      There are a few things that maybe a help for next time; When you make syrniki next time make the batter and leave it for 15 min on the counter top. This way it will get puffy. And if the batter is too runny, it will not get puffy. Just add more flour. Sometimes if you use a different type of flour than Canadian it will be a a difference, or tvorog had some water in it.
      Hope it works better for you next time:)))
