Pancakes Made with Farmer's Cheese
Recipe Type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Russian
Serves: 10 pancakes
Baked farmer's cheese cakes are similar to the Russian syrniki, but are made in the oven for an easier morning.
  • 1 cup farmers cheese (it’s sold by cream cheeses in most grocery stores, look for the kind without potassium sorbate)
  • 2 pastured eggs, slightly beaten
  • ¼ cup sugar, or any sweetener you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup of all-purpose einkorn flour (I like Jovial) or coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (how to make ghee)
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoonMeasuring spoon – 1 tablespoon
  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl until you get thick cookie dough consistency. The mixture will stay grainy because of the cheese.
  3. Scoop one tablespoon of dough in your hand, shape to the form of a pancake. Continue until all the dough is gone.
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes, turning the pancakes once half way through, until both sides are nicely brown.
  5. Brush with melted butter or ghee before serving.
