Cottage Cheese Cake with Berries !

But I think happiness springs from another source, a far deeper one that doesn’t depend on will because it comes from love.

Henryk Sienkiewicz

Dough ingredients:
– 1 cup (1 cup = 250ml) flour
– 150g cottage cheese or quark
– 80g sugar
– 4 tbsp olive oil
– 1 egg
– 1 pinch salt
– 1/2 tsp butter for buttering the baking form

Filling ingredients:
– 300g berries mix (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries), I used frozen ones
– sugar to taste

Method:

1 Filling
1.1 Wash (unfreeze) berries and let them dry for 20-30 minutes
1.2 Add 20-40g sugar and mix (I do not add sugar to the filling as the cake is sweet enough without it but one can add some sugar!)
2 Dough and cake
2.1 Preheat the oven to 200C
2.2 Mix dough ingredients and knead the dough
2.3 Separate the dough into 2/3 (for the base part) and 1/3 (for the upper part)
2.4 Roll out 2/3 dough part into 20cm round and put in the buttered form
2.5 Put the berries mixture over the dough
2.6 Roll out 1/3 dough and cut 1cm width stripes out of it. One can also make some decorations with a cookie cutter 🙂
2.7 Put the stripes over the berries mixture
2.8 Bake the cake at 200C 25-35 minutes
2.9 Sprinkle with sugar powder and serve with a cup of green tea !
