Some time ago I came across the recipe for sirniki: a classic Russian breakfast for donuts with cottage cheese. I had in mind to check the recipe someday but there was always something else to prepare and cook. Until today, when I had to figure out a quick and easy afternoon snack for my daughter. I experimented with the recipe and added coconut sugar and coconut sawdust, and instead of frying the sirniki, I cooked them in the oven. The result is a sweet-salty magic, especially irresistible when served with honey and fresh strawberries.
I got 8 pieces sirniki from the following products, so you can safely double or triple the proportions if you want a larger dose. The recipe is really very quick and easy to prepare – try it yourself. And don`t forget the honey!
Sirniki with cottage cheese and coconut sawdust
What you`ll need:
250 g cottage cheese (or ricotta or cream cheese)
50 g flour
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
1 tablespoon coconut sawdust
How to cook it:
Preheat the oven to 180° and prepare the backing tray with baking paper.
Crumble the cheese and grind it with a fork. Add the sugar and mix.
Sift the flour and add to the mixture. Finally put the egg and coconut sawdust and stir well. A homogeneous and sticky mixture should be obtained.
Using a spoon, scoop some of the dough and shape the sirnki on the tray, leaving a gap between them – they rise slightly while backing.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until golden. Leave on a wire rack to cool. Serve with honey or jam.
