  • 3 eggs

  • 1 baking powder
  • fat (butter/oil)
  • ingredients for seasoning
  • 1 cottage cheese (in a tub/tinfoil)
  • milk or water


  • Mix flour with baking powder in a bowl.
  • Crack the eggs and separate the yolks from the whites.
  • Beat the egg yolks with sugar and fat.
  • Add the cottage cheese to the yolks, mix carefully.
  • Mix the loose mixture into the dough prepared in this way.
  • Beat the egg whites and mix them into the dough.
  • If the dough is thicker, we can add an adequate amount of milk or water.
  • Bake the cake in a slightly preheated oven long enough for it to bake well. If it gets too dark on top, cover it with aluminum foil.
  • We continuously check with a skewer whether the cake is already well baked or if it still needs a few minutes in the oven.
  • The baked cake can be sugared, or wait until it cools down and then cover it with chocolate glaze.

Tip for you: In order for the cheesecake to turn out better, we place it on a towel soaked in cold water and give it some time – ideally we only turn it out when the towel is completely dry.
