I've never made these, but evidently they are quite messy to make because the batter is very thin. Please read the comments of people who made them so you won't end up with an unpleasant surprise ;-)

Serves:
16-18 pancakes
Prep:
15 Min
Cook:
25 Min
Method:
Pan Fry

Ingredients

14-15 oz
farmer's cheese or ricotta (2-2 1/2 cups)
2
eggs
1/4 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
sour cream
2 tsp
vanilla
1/2 c
flour plus another half cup for dredging
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
raisins (optional)
butter or oil for frying

Step-By-Step

1Place farmer's cheese in food processor and pulse until smooth, add eggs, sour cream, sugar and vanilla, pulse until smooth.
2In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, salt, then add to the wet mix in the food processor and pulse until combined.
3Add raisins, if using, and mix with spatula.
4Heat 1 tablespoon butter or oil in a non-stick skillet on medium low heat. The oil has to become really hot, so be patient! If it's not hot enough, the pancakes will soak up too much fat and become greasy.
5Place remaining 1/2 cup of flour on a shallow dish, scoop about 1/4 cup of batter onto floured dish, dredge and then fry until golden brown.
6Serve warm with sour cream, fruit or jam.
