Syrniki are tender pancakes, made out of farmer’s cheese (tvorog). They are a traditional dessert in Russia and will make an excellent breakfast as well.
Mix together cheese, sugar, egg, vanilla and lemon zest.
Add raisins, then flour and gently work into soft dough.
Scoop a mixture with a table spoon and form little balls.
Coat each ball in flour.
Flat each ball, making a patty.
Cook pancakes in the oil on the skillet on medium heat for four minutes on each side, or until golden-brown.
Remove pancakes from the skillet and place on apaper towel to absorb excess of oil.
Dust over with some powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream or fruit jam.
