Cook Time: 45
Servings: 8

Ingredients:

For a dough:
1 egg
0.5 cup of sugar
1 tb spoon sour cream
100 gr unsalted butter
1 tea spoon soda with 1 tb spoon of white vinegar
250 gr farmer cottage cheese
2.5 cups flour

For a filling:
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
250 gr farmer cottage cheese
1 tb spoon sour cream
2 plums

 

I would say this cake is a kind of a Russian style of a cheesecake with fruits. Instead of a crust there is a soft dough with a tender texture. The filling is made with a home made cottage cheese, which is dense, unlike regular American cottage cheese. It can be bought at a Russian grocery store.
It’s a perfect idea for a variety of breakfast meals.

Bring butter to a room temperature, so it becomes soft and easy to work with.
