Traditional Syrniki (Russian pancakes) BrunchBeing of Russian heritage I enjoy a variety of Russian foods. One of my favorites is Syrniki pancakes. I have tried many recipes and non compares to the most recent, found in the Wall Street Journal. I whipped up a batch for New Year's bunch.
Amazingly there is little flour in these pancakes. A few tablespoons of flour and cream of wheat, along with eggs (I get mine from free-roaming happy chickens that are never killed), are the binding agents. Salted Farmers cheese is the main ingredient. Raisins soaked in black tea give the pancakes an old world flavor. Check out the recipe at the WSJ.
Note that if you live in this area you may have to think ahead when making this. I could not find the salted cheese anywhere in Crisfield or Salisbury. Still waiting on a Wegmans in the Bury.
