How to make cheese cake with stuffing
This recipe is very easy especially when you have leftover cheese in the fridge. The cake dough is airy, fluffy and really delicious to eat.
- Cottage cheese – 1/2 lb. (250 g.)
- Eggs – 2 pieces
- Salt – 1/2 tsp
- Soda or baking powder – 1/2 tsp
- Sugar – 1/2 tsp
- Sunflower oil – 1 tbsp + oil for frying
- Flour – 1.5 cups
- For the filling: 3 medium potatoes, 1 large onion
Mix the eggs and sugar. Beat up the mixture with a fork or mixer.
Add baking soda (you can substitute with vinegar or citric acid, dissolved in warm water).
Stir it thoroughly to remove lumps and make blend smooth.
Combine the egg mixture with the curds. Knead it very carefully until completely smooth with no lumps. It takes about 2-3 minutes to totally obtain a smooth consistency. You need to stir continuously.
Start to pouring flour in batches, each time stirring constantly. It’s uncertain how much flour will take this blend, it depends on how watery the cheese is and how large the eggs are.
As you finish adding the flour, add a little sunflower oil.
Then mix again. You can tell that the dough is ready when it does not stick to your hands. Do not overdo placing flour otherwise the dough will be too stiff. Sculpt dough into sausage shape and cut into pieces. You can make 12-13 small cheese cakes with these amount of ingredients.
To get filling you have to make mash from cooked (don’t forget to add salt during cooking) potatoes. It will make our dish more fragrant if add a fried onions.
Roll out a piece of dough in your hands, put in the middle a bit of stuffing.
Pinch the edges together, forming any shape of cake – oblong, round or triangular depending on what you like. Cook them to a pan with hot sunflower oil. Fry until the golden crust. As these are cooked, you will notice that cakes will grow. So do not put them too tight to avoid sticking.
Fry pies on both sides. Bon Appetit!
- You may use any kind of filling. You may try something sweet – cherry, raspberry, prune. You may also add more sugar to the dough.
