Cottage cheese pie with rasins



This is another traditional Lithuanian dish that I used to enjoy most of my childhood Sundays. Cottage cheese is a very common ingredient in Lithuanian cuisine and Lithuanians have numerous ways of preparing it. And all of them are absolutely delicious!!!

What we need:

500gr of cottage cheese

2 eggs

150gr of sugar

4 tbsp of semolina

1 teaspoon of lemon zest

200gr of rasins

0,5 teaspoon of baking powder

80 ml of cream

a pinch of salt

butter for a baking tray

What we have to do:

1. Use a fork to smash cottage cheese, add sugar, cream, semolina, lemon zest, baking powder, rasins and egg yoks. 

2. Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt and carefully mix in cottage cheese batter.

3. Butter baking tray and sprinkle some semolina, then put the batter. 

4. Bake in a 200C oven until golden brown for about 30 min. Serve with cream, jam or yogurt. This time I served with homemade black current jam.
