Recipe for flourless cheesecakes

Recipe for syrniki without flour

Flourless cheesecakes can be made with semolina, but if the requirement is to be completely flourless, we will not add anything wheat-based... And to better meet dietary requirements, we will not fry them in oil on a pan, but instead bake them in the oven in suitable small molds with a round bottom. Based on this recipe, the cheesecakes can be made as sweet desserts or savory snacks.

For the cheese pancakes, it's preferable to use dry cottage cheese rather than moist. If needed, you can even drain off any excess whey by hanging it in cheesecloth. The fat content of the cottage cheese is not crucial and any type will work. To avoid having large curds in the pancakes, pass the cottage cheese through a sieve or use the vertical blade attachment of an immersion blender to prepare the batter. Separate the egg whites from the yolks using a special tool or by transferring the whites from one eggshell to another. The requirement is that the eggs must be fresh, as eggs nearing their expiration date may have a harder time separating the whites from the yolks.

Thoroughly mix the prepared cottage cheese with the small egg yolk, sugar, a pinch of salt, and optionally, vanilla sugar, using a fork or blender attachment, until you have a homogeneous mixture. If it still looks excessively raw or watery, add one to one and a half tablespoons of cornstarch for a better texture. However, the taste and structure of the pancakes are more harmonious with just the egg white.

To prevent the protein mass for syrniki from becoming liquid, it must be beaten beforehand. Beat the egg white first at medium speed, and then at high speed until it increases in volume. Add the protein mass to the cottage cheese, stirring it with a spoon or directly with your hands if the amount of mass for syrniki is significant.

From the obtained mass, you can make syrniki in several ways. Traditional option: fry portions of the cottage cheese mass, spooned onto a pan with oil, like pancakes. Dietary option: baking in the oven. I will focus more on the baking method. Silicone or other non-stick molds for small muffins, which do not need to be greased, are especially suitable for this purpose. Place a portion of the mass for syrniki, about 1-1.5 cm high, into each mold and bake in the oven at 180-200 degrees for about 15 minutes, but the time depends on the oven's characteristics. Monitor closely to avoid over-drying.
