Description

These buttery pancakes are easy to make, but impossible to resist.

This recipe makes 8 pancakes.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Quark Cheese (Or Ricotta If You Can't Find Quark Cheese)
  • 2 whole Egg Yolks
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 cup Flour, Plus More For Forming The Pancakes
  • 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Lemon Zest
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ¼ sticks Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Oil
  • Sour Cream And Jam, To Serve

Preparation

Place a colander over a large bowl and cover with a piece of clean cheesecloth. Put the cheese over the cheesecloth , wrap into a tight bun and allow the whey to drain, about 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

To make the batter, discard the whey, remove the cheesecloth and place the strained cheese into the bowl.

Beat the yolks and egg together and add to the cheese. Add the flour, sugar, salt, zest, vanilla and incorporate everything together using a fork. Dad finds a potato masher works well.

If you’re not ready to eat them yet, cover the bowl with plastic and store in the fridge for up to 1 day. The dough travels well, too, if you want to take them to your daughter’s house and spoil her.

When you’re ready to fry them, gently start heating a nonstick pan, add a dab of butter and a drizzle of oil, so the butter doesn’t burn.

Cut a piece of parchment paper and place it over a clean plate/tray. Put some flour onto another plate/tray and cover your palms with flour. Take a heaping tablespoonful of dough and roll it into a ball about the size of a lime. Rest it on one palm and with the flat of the fingers of your other hand, pat the ball down into a patty about 1/2 inch thick. Shape the rest of the pancakes.

Once the butter/oil has started to bubble and brown, gently place the pancakes, one at a time into the pan. Take good care not to splatter any hot oil onto your hand. After about 2 minutes, lift a pancake slightly to see how crispy brown the bottom has gotten. Flip the pancakes and rotate the pan for even heating.

Serve hot with cold sour cream and your favorite jam.
