Cheese cake

Fluffy cottage cheese babovka

A cake with coffee or tea is simply a part of our lives. Can you imagine a weekend without a cupcake? Catastrophe. Prepare a quick, supple and above all very good cake with your favorite cottage cheese.


  • 1 1/2 cups semi-coarse flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 bag of vanilla sugar
  • 1 baking powder
  • 1 soft cottage cheese in a tub
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cube of softened Hera
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried lemon peel


  1. Let’s start by making stiff snow from the egg whites, which we will put aside for now.
  2. Put softened Hera, egg yolks and sugar in another bowl, beat thoroughly and add cottage cheese, baking powder, vanilla sugar and flour.
  3. Beat well and finally mix in the egg whites. We just carefully mix with the dough with a wooden spoon so that it remains fluffy.
  4. Prepare a cake mold, it can be silicone, which does not need to be cleaned or classic, which you clean and sprinkle with flour or breadcrumbs (depending on what you prefer to use).
  5. Pour the batter and place in the oven preheated to 180°C. Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on the type of oven. The baked cake can be sugared or sprinkled with chocolate glaze, or neither, if you prefer less sweet pastries.

TIP: If you want, you can pour only 2/3 of the dough into the mold and add a little milk or 1 egg yolk and 2 spoons of cocoa to the last third, mix and pour into the mold with the rest of the dough, where you mix it lightly with a wooden spoon to create a marble.

Cottage cheese fruit dumplings

Fruit dumplings are perfection itself. Beautifully supple, delicate and amazingly tasty. They are mostly made from yeast dough, but they are also made from potato or cottage cheese dough.

The filling is up to you, after all, some people prefer apricots, others strawberries, and still others molasses. Try making strawberry cottage cheese dumplings.


  • 250 g of cubed soft cottage cheese
  • 250 g semi-coarse flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 teaspoons of powdered sugar
  • whole strawberries

For decoration: grated cottage cheese, melted butter, powdered sugar.


  1. Pour flour into a bowl, add cottage cheese, powdered sugar, salt and work everything into a smooth dough, which we turn out onto a rolling pin.
  2. We roll out a plate with a thickness of 4 mm and divide it into squares using a rolling pin. If you don’t like it, a knife will do (the squares must be bigger than the strawberries).
  3. We always put a strawberry on each square, wrap it, shape it into a round dumpling in the palm of our hands. This is how we process all the dough with strawberries and let the water boil.
  4. As soon as the water boils, we start dropping one dumpling after another, continuously mixing with a wooden spoon, which prevents the dumplings from sticking to the bottom.
  5. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, until they float to the surface. Take the finished dumplings out of the water, put them in a bowl and pierce them all with a fork to release steam.
  6. It’s a good idea to brush them with melted butter, so they don’t stick together. Before serving, just stack them on a plate, sprinkle with sugar, grated hard cottage cheese and drizzle with melted butter. If you like, you can also sprinkle them with cinnamon, cocoa or your favorite Grank.
