Syrniki is a traditional Russian and Ukrainian dessert from cottage cheese (curd cheese, quark). Usually syrniki is fried on the pan in hot oil. Classic recipe of syrniki is here.

But, here I propose a different way to cook them. It’s much easier and super-healthy! We will bake them! If you’re interesting in a low-calorie food just use fat-less or skim cottage cheese and/or replace sugar with honey or stevia (or another sweetener and sugar substitute).


  • 350-400 g (12-14 ounces) cottage cheese (curd cheese, oak)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar (or honey, or stevia, or another sweetener and sugar substitute)
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons raisins
  • Vanilla sugar to taste
  • 1 banana mashed mashed with fork

Let’s get started!

  1. Preheat oven up to 180°С or 356° F.
  2. In a big bowl whisk egg and sugar until white and smooth. Add vanilla sugar, cottage cheese, flour and mix well. Add raisins and mashed banana if you desire. Thoroughly mix everything with a spoon. Let batter to rest for 10-15 minutes at the room temperature.Mixed pastry for syrniki in a glass bowl with a silicone spatula closeup.
  3. After the rest mix batter again and put into small silicone muffin cups (each one fill full). Place cups with batter on the oven tray and bake syrniki in the oven 20-30 minutes until golden.Cooking cheese and vanilla syrniki as cupcakes or muffins, in colored muffins cups closeup.Cottage cheese syrniki, baked as cupcakes or muffins, in colored muffins cup on the oven-tray closeup.

        I made these sirniki in a muffin tin for Valentine’s Day and they are amazing! Fluffy and lightly scented with banana. I have been searching for a recipe that uses just a little flour, yet sirniki hold their shape! Delicious!
        I will be using this recipe from now on!
        Thank you!
