Swedish cheesecake


The photo doesn't do this justice at all, but I still wanted to tell you about it! I had dinner last night with Dagmar and Courtney of Coco Cooks and Dagmar had cooked a wonderful meal with very Swedish flavors. For dessert, she made this Swedish cheesecake that's nothing like any other cheesecake. It's made totally from scratch, making the cheese from milk and whey. It has lots of toasted almonds in it, making it grainy and almost a little like a rice pudding. It's always served with whipped cream and jam - we were served a delicious red currant vanilla jam that was perfect with the soft sweetness of the cake. Yum! I might attempt this myself sometime!

Hej Anne, is this recipe similar to Ostkaka?

Anne said...

Patrice, absolutely! It's a "Småländsk Ostkaka".

clarissa - it's sold at Apoteket! (And I hear rumors that it might be at Willys, but I haven't looked.)

I grew up eating this! It's fantastic! I've got an old church cookbook from the midwest (Nebraska I think)that has this recipe. We used cottage cheese in place of the curds. Think I'll have to go make some. Thanks for the flashback.
