  • 16 oz farmers cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour (+ more for dusting if desired)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Sour cream and jam (for serving)


  1. mix the farmers cheese, eggs, 1/2 cup flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. It should be a fluffy texture, still a bit sticky.
  2. If you want your syrniki to be extra round, scoop them onto a floured surface and gently roll into a ball. Place them under a water cup and gently spin to get a really round shape (see video). Otherwise, dollop directly onto the skillet in the next step.
  3. Preheat a large skillet over a medium flame. Add the oil and butter and let sizzle. Gently add the rounded syrniki in the pan or scoop directly in like pancakes.
  4. Cook a 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crisp.
  5. Serve with sour cream and jam.


Leftover batter can be stored in the fridge for a day or two and used the next morning.
