Cheese Latkes
  • 1 pound farmers cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Blend using a hand blender or mix very well by hand.
  2. Lightly grease a non stick skillet or griddle. Place a heaping tablespoon of the batter in pan and cook until bottoms are lightly brown. Carefully flip over and cook the second side. Repeat with remaining batter.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature with some confectioners’ sugar.


Alternative: Don’t have sour cream? You can omit the sour cream and milk and replace it with a rich yogurt such as J & J Deluxe. Just add an additional egg.

  1. Best recipe!! Been making these for 15+ years!! You can freeze them and then reheat in the oven on a cookie sheet (although I rarely have any left to freeze!). Serve topped with sour cream and raspberry preserves. Yum!!
