The secret to fluffy cottage cheese pancakes lies primarily in the right cottage cheese. It should be dry enough so that you don't have to add a large amount of flour. If the cottage cheese seems moist to you, it's better to put it in cheesecloth, squeeze lightly, and let excess moisture drain. In addition, the cottage cheese for cottage cheese pancakes should be in small lumps, not soft. Cottage cheese in bricks is perfect for casseroles or souffles, but not suitable for cottage cheese pancakes - they will turn out to be cottage cheese fritters. And another secret is that for fluffy cottage cheese pancakes, it is better not just to mash the cottage cheese with a fork, but to strain it. Since today I will be making fluffy cottage cheese pancakes, I arm myself with a sieve and carefully strain the cottage cheese. This takes more time, of course, than simply mashing the cottage cheese with a fork, but believe me, the efforts will pay off.

To the strained cottage cheese, I add eggs, cinnamon, and salt. I don't add sugar to the pancakes, they are delicious without it. But if you are used to sugar, then at this stage, add sugar to your taste.

I add semolina and corn flour to the bowl with the cottage cheese mixture, and don't forget about the baking powder. This is another secret to fluffy cottage cheese pancakes. Instead of baking powder, you can use baking soda, but you should be more careful with it - an excess will result in an unpleasant aftertaste.

Thoroughly mix everything and start shaping the syrniki. Sprinkle a little cornmeal on a plate - 1.5-2 tbsp. will be enough. Spoon the cottage cheese dough and roll it into a ball in your hands, then gently press it with your palms. Roll in flour, shaking off excess.

Heat a frying pan, add a little vegetable oil and fry the syrniki on a low heat with the lid closed until golden brown on both sides. That's it, fluffy cottage cheese pancakes are ready. They are amazingly light and tender right from the pan. And if you leave them in the refrigerator overnight, the syrniki will become slightly denser, but won't lose any flavor.
