Glums Koki..Cottage Cheese Cakes

I remember my Mom making these often. I loved them then and still do! I make these cakes when I have leftover cottage cheese when making perogies. The recipe is in the Mennonite Treasury..must be the one my Mom used.

1 1/2 cups dry cottage cheese
3 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
Combine cottage cheese and eggs and mix well. Add the flour and salt and stir till well combined.
Drop from spoon onto hot greased pan. Cook for approx 10 min, turn them after half of the cooking time so they are browned on both sides.
I served them hot with applesauce and a green salad. Mmm..mm good!

  1. These look so yummy! I'm wondering where you find the dry cottage cheese. A family favorite that has been passed down from my grandmother is veranika (sp?) which also calls for dry cottage cheese. I haven't been able to find it at local grocery stores. Is there a way to use the regular cottage cheese for these recipes?

  2. Yummy Yummy!!! I too remember these. Although my memories are more of Dad making them....regardless who made them they were always very tasty. Haven't made them in a while, but after seeing the posted picture & recipe, will definitely be making them in the very near future...thanks again Betty!!

  3. I'm not sure if mom ever made these...the name sounds familiar. Yum...this looks good Betty and like something I should definitely try. I'll tell you how they turn out. Would they have been served with any sauce ever? Like a sour cream sauce? Just trying to remember them.

  4. leraningtofollow..I have a friend who makes verenecki using creamed cottage cheese, she drains the liquid in a sieve then using a spoon or fork to press the last of the liquid out. Might just work for these cakes too..maybe a bit more flour as well.
    Trish..my Mom never served these with applesauce..we ate them plain..you could eat them with a sour cream sauce.
    Norma..yep I remember dad making them too..he was always in the kitchen!

  6. I remember the name...and think my grandma made these...but I wasn't ever willing to try anything with cottage cheese 'back in the day'. Now's the time to give it a try! I'm thinking they'd be perfect with Roger's golden syrup.

  8. I can't remember ever having these, but I think they would taste good with sugar, for some reason. I also prefer Verenike pan fried and then sprinkled with sugar.

  10. Glums Koki were a common dish in our family. As a kid I wasn't very fond of them though! Definitely a Mennonite recipe from the Old Country.

  18. these look great, i think I will try them. I've recently moved from Ontario to BC, away from all of my mennonite roots and what's worse is that I don't have anyone to cook for anymore! (and we all know there's no such thing as cooking in single portions.) haha. I really enjoy your site. thank you!
