Childhood favourite. Every now and then my granny makes these. Even now that I'm all grown up.
aka Estonian curd cheese fritters
750g curd cheese*
330 - 350g flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
Mix sugar into curd cheese.
Add eggs one by one.
Sift baking powder into flour and add a bit of salt.
Combine flour mixture with egg and curd cheese mixture. Mix thoroughly.
Leave the batter to rest for half an hour.
Fry spoonfuls of batter in plenty of oil until rising to the surface and golden on all sides.
*Ricotta may be used as a substitute but it does have a firmer, drier consistency. Might have to reduce the amount of flour by a couple of spoonfuls.
