Cheese Lat-cakes

What do you get when you cross cheesecake, pancakes and latkes? Cheese Lat-cakes! I have come to the end of my Shavuot recipe-a-thon and I decided to end with these which also doubled as Gourmet Brunch Wednesday. I can't think of a bad thing to say about the delectable lat-cakes- they taste basically like the inside of the most delicious cheese blintz but pan fried in a pancake- how can you go wrong with that? The only thing missing were some fresh berries like strawberries and blueberries which are not in season here to serve with them but I improvised with a strawberry jam topping. Make these and prepare for rave reviews!!


1 lb Farmer's cheese ( I used 2 pkgs of Tuv Taam cheese or even better, 1 package of Tuborg cheese)
5 Tbl Cottage cheese
4 Tbl Cream Cheese
1/4 cup milk
4 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup + 2 Tbl sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Topping:
1/4 cup strawberry Jam
2 Tbl water


 Mash the farmer's cheese until mostly smooth (it's ok if there are a few lumps). Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until it resembles a pancake batter but thicker. Fry by quarter cupfuls in either oil or cooking spray about 2 minutes on each side. Mix the jam and water over low heat in a sauce pan until it is sauce consistency about 2 minutes. Serve with the pancakes.
