Baked Russian Syrniki – Farmer Cheese Patties

One more version of Russian breakfast meal. Two way to serve it: like it is, with sour cream and/or fruit compote (I made peach-plum compote in microwave) or jam or syrniki casserole with sour cream.

Baked Russian Syrniki – Farmer Cheese Patties

Yield: 2 servings (6 cakes in each)

1 3/4 cups farmer cheese (low-fat or non-fat is good too)
1 egg
1 tbsp. sugar
pinch of salt
pinch of soda (optional, added if cheese is too sour)
2 tbsp. semolina flour
For serve: sour cream (optional)
1 medium peach, sliced (optional)
1 medium plum. sliced (optional)
1 tsp. brown sugar

Combine cheese, egg, salt, sugar, soda and semolina flour, mix to make soft dough.

Preheat oven in 350F with sprayed or oiled baking pan in it.

Drop dough into heated pan with two tablespoons (I used my Norpro Stainless Steel Scoop). Bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Serve hot with sour cream or fruit compote.

For fruit compote: combine fruits and brown sugar in microwave-safe bowl and cook, uncovered, about1-2 minutes until fruits became soft and juicy.

For casserole, mix 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 tbsp. sugar. In baking dish place 6 syrniki, spread with half sweetened sour cream, place more 6 syrniki and pour remaining sweetened sour cream on top. Bake in preheated oven about 10-12 minutes, let cool and eat like cake or take one by one.

1 serving( without sour cream) is about 270 calories
