Mix everything thoroughly using a fork or a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. The mixture will be very sticky and that is normal.
Shape: Using a large ice cream scoop scoop the syrniki mixture and drop it directly into flour. Then, roll into a ball and flatten into a 3/4" thick pancake. Coat the outside in flour as needed to prevent sticking.
Or, press the dough into a dough ball, then roll into an even log. Cut into 12 pieces with a sharp knife. Coat the outside of each piece in flour, as needed to prevent sticking and shape into a 3/4 inch tall puck-like pancake.
Pro Shaping Tip: to make these Russian pancakes into perfectly round puck-like pancakes drop chunks of syrniki mixture into flour, coat it well then roll into a ball. Pat it down to about 2/3 inch thick, then place a cup over the flattened pancake and on a well floured surface, quickly, in rotating motion swirl the pancake with the help of the cup. This will create perfectly neat sides of the pancake.
Fry in a skillet: Add couple tablespoons of oil and/or butter to a skillet and preheat it over medium heat. Fry Syrniki in batches until deep golden on both sides. Add more oil and butter as needed to prevent the cheese pancakes from sticking.
Serve with sweetened sour cream and jam or fresh berries.
