Cheesecakes - a dish of Belarusian cuisine is traditionally prepared in the Masleniye week. Cheesecakes with oatmeal and apples without flour, with a minimum amount of sugar - the most useful and tasty pancakes on Maslenitsa. Since Maslenitsa is celebrated the whole week before Great Lent and, if you honor the traditions of the ancestors, you can gain a lot of extra pounds, which will be hard to lose even during fasting. Therefore, try baking cheesecakes from low-fat cottage cheese and low-fat sour cream, instead of flour, take instant oatmeal, and sweeten cheesecakes with sweet raisins and apples.
The recipe for cheesecakes with oatmeal and apples is suitable for those who do not eat foods containing gluten, and if you add a substitute for sugar instead of sugar, you will get diet pancakes, no matter how strange it sounds.
Be sure to add soda to the dough at the very end of the dough, because, getting into the liquid and acidic medium, the soda immediately begins to “act”, air bubbles are formed, which make cheesecakes fluffy and airy, which means they are very tasty. Cheesecakes can be prepared from slightly acidified sour cream and cottage cheese, it even improves the fermentation process and pancakes are more lush.

Method of making cheesecakes with oatmeal and apples
We mix cottage cheese, sour cream and granulated sugar in a deep bowl, cottage cheese can be rubbed through a fine sieve so that its grains are not found in the cheesecakes.
Add the raw yolk, a pinch of salt and oatmeal to the bowl, stir, leave for a few minutes so that the flakes swell and the dough becomes viscous. It is best to use quick-cooking cereal in baking; you can add a mixture of four cereal flakes.
We wash the raisins with running water and soak it in boiling water for a few minutes, then pour out the water, dry the raisins with a paper towel and add to the dough. Remove the core of the apples, rub them on a large grater, put in the dough with ground cinnamon.
We mix all the ingredients of the dough well, beat the egg whites separately to a state of solid peaks, add proteins and about half a teaspoon of baking soda to the dough, mix well and you can reheat the pan - the dough for cheesecakes is ready.
We lightly grease the frying pan with vegetable oil for frying, it is very convenient to do this: we cut the raw potato in half, we prick the fork, before we put a new batch of cheesecakes on the pan, we dip the potato in a bowl with vegetable oil, we cover the frying pan with a thin layer of fat. Fry cheese cakes for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown crust is formed.
Hot syrniki thickly pour sour cream, served with strawberry jam or jam.
Cheesecakes with oatmeal and apples are ready. Bon appetit and happy Shrovetide!
