This is an easy version of Ostakaka, a swedish cheese cake. My husband's Grandmother made this for special occasions and gave me the recipe to make for my husband when we were first dating. Fifteen+ years later, I am still making this on special occasions for him and our children.


3 Eggs
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese; (12 oz size container)
1 tbsp flour
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Whipping cream

Original recipe makes 9 Servings



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly beat eggs, and add creamed cottage cheese (creamed= mash cottage cheese with a fork or potato masher - leaving some small chunks). Stir flour into sugar, then add to the cottage cheese/egg mixture. Lastly, add the rest of the wet ingredients. Mix until blended. Pour into small pan. Bake for about 1 hour or until a knife comes out clean. Some browning around the edges is normal. Serve warm or cold with fruit or a fruit syrup.

I really liked this dish it is true to time and came out really well. It is a good dish for people that need to have less or no sugar it still bakes well with sugar and with the splinda.
