The ultimate cheesecake

Christmas time goes on. Table is still full of food, meat, fish, meat, vegetables, meat, desserts, meat… at our home meat dishes are most popular, I must agree. But we also have different types of cakes to eat after meals, with a latte macchiato, tea or other cappuccino. My definite number 1 is cheesecake.

When I was a kid my mom made the ultimate cheesecake each Christmas and also each Easter. The moment I moved abroad I had to take care of this by myself. After research and combining of few recipes I found my favorite, which I want to share with you.


* 750 g fat cottage cheese (or semi-fat)
* 1 cup milk (more than 3 % fat)
* 1/2 cup of heavy cream (30% fat or more)
* 50 g of butter
* 3 (big) tablespoons cornstarch/potato flower (I used vanilla pudding powder)
* 6 eggs, (separate yellow from white part)
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 package vanilla sugar (around 16 g) or vanilla extract to taste
* biscuits if you want for bottom
All ingredients should be at room temperature.

Crumbled cookies at the bottom of the form


Heat the oven up to 160ยฐC. Cottage cheese mix to a smooth paste with butter, eggs (yellow part) , sugar, potato flour(or vanilla pudding powder), cream, vanilla sugar/aroma. Add the milk and mix (mass will be very liquid). Do not mix for too long, so you do not aerate the whole stuff – aerated cheesecake grows strongly and then falls.

Beat the whites to stiff peaks and gently using with wooden spoon with the rest of the mass.

Round cake form with a diameter of 24 cm seal well and put baking paper in the bottom. Pour the cheesecake (for me, it reached almost to the height of the form). At the bottom I put also some biscuits. You could either just put whole biscuits or make crumbles and cover the bottom with them. You could as well forget the biscuits ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bake for about 75 – 90 minutes without convection. Cheesecake grow over the form, then gently falls. Ready cheesecake should be golden/brownish, beheaded and elastic on top. Cool down in the oven (you can leave the oven little open), then cool in a refrigerator for about 12 hours. You can put chocolate, fruits, whatever you wish on top, I smeared Bounty cream, which was a bad idea ๐Ÿ™‚ Just see how it looks like :))

Time: 10 min preparation + 75-90 min in the oven + 12 hours chilling.
Kcal: 0 ๐Ÿ˜‰ seriously I have no idea, but also who cares when it tastes so good.

It is delicious! Soft, delicate, airy, sweet, but not exaggerated. I am in heaven eating it. What about you?
