Сырники, Syrniki or syrnyky are delicious fried cottage cheese pancakes, garnished with sour cream, varenye, jam, honey or apple sauce. The cheese mixture may contain raisins for extra flavor. In Russia, they are also known as tvorozhniki. They are a part of Belarusian, Russian, Ukrainian, Latvian and Serbian cuisine.

Heat a medium nonstick pan over medium heat, add 2 tbsp of oil, I prefer to use the sunflower oil since it doesn’t have a strong flavor.

On a big wooden cutting board add a few tbsp of flour, using a tbsp gently turn the batter into pancakes. This step is more clear on the video demonstration.
