For brunch we tried Syrniki from Cooking the Globe. This was our first experience with the Russian cottage cheese pancakes. They turned out very light and fluffy. We topped them with some caramelized apples. The pancakes were accompanied by some tea with honey. A nice relaxing and indulgent way to begin our Sunday.
