Russian Syrniki for Breakfast

This traditional Russian dish is served for breakfast or dessert. It is made with quark (tvorog in Russian) which is an Eastern European fresh cheese which can be found in many international food stores. If you are unable to find quark, you can substitute it with cottage cheese. It is usually served with sour cream.

Ingredients: 2 cups of quark or creamy cottage cheese, 2 tablespoons white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, 3 tablespoons of flour for dusting, 1 egg, canola oil or butter for frying.

Take a large bowl. Add 2 cups of quark. The quark that I used was in a pressed packaging. Usually I use loose quark but either one works well.Add 2 tablespoons of white sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour.

Add 1 egg and mix all together.

Shape the mixture into oval cakes and dust in flour on both sides.

Fry on both sides in butter or canola oil.

Serve with sour cream, jam or honey.
