How to test a cake for doneness
Nutrition per serving
- butter (melted, for greasing)
- loaf pan
Preheat the oven to 160°C/320°F. Grease a 1 kg loaf pan with melted butter.
- 33⅓ g butter (melted)
- 166⅔ g cottage cheese
- 1 eggs
- 33⅓ g sugar
- ⅓ bag vanilla sugar
- 33⅓ g semolina
- 33⅓ g flour
- ⅔ tbsp raisins
- bowl (large)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and leave to swell for 15 minutes so that the semolina absorbs some of the liquid. (Instead of cottage cheese it is even better to use syr (see Mamusia page 109) or Polish twaróg).
- strawberry jam (for serving)
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, until the cake is firm and a golden brown crust has formed. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then turn out. Serve warm or at room temperature with a dollop of (gooseberry-) strawberry jam.
