  • 1 cup Farmer's Cheese

  • 1 Egg

  • 3 tablespoon All Purpose Flour (plus 2 tablespoons more)

  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder

  • 1 tablespoon Cane Sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

  • Oil for frying


  • Combine all the ingredients together (use 3 tablespoons flour) in a bowl and mix the dough well.

  • Put the other 2 tablespoons in a shallow dish. Take a spoon full of dough and put it into flour. Form the patties by rolling the dough in the flour. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough (I made 10 pancakes from this dough).

  • Heat up a skillet with some oil in it (I usually use sunflower oil because it has less smell and is great for frying). Place the formed patties into it and fry until golden brown on both sides.

  • Serve hot with whatever toppings you like. Enjoy!


You can find Farmer's Cheese in the dairy section of the store near cream cheese. In Whole Foods it is usually in the section with fresh pasta and store packed ricotta cheese.
