Method of cooking cottage cheese muffins with carrots, raisins and cinnamon
Making the dough for cheesecake. In a deep bowl lay out fresh dry cottage cheese. I advise you to cook it from fat cottage cheese, there are fewer lumps in it.
Curd mix with sugar, add ground cinnamon, a pinch of fine salt, to balance the sweet and sour taste of cottage cheese cakes with carrots.
Then break into a bowl two raw chicken eggs. If the eggs are small, it is better to take three pieces.
Mix the ingredients with a spoon, no need to whisk. At this stage, you only need to dissolve the sugar.
Scrape the raw carrot, three on a small vegetable grater, add to the wet ingredients, mix.
Melt the butter, cool slightly and pour it into a bowl. You can mix in equal shares butter and olive oil.
Next, pour the semolina and 1 \ 2 teaspoon of baking soda. If you are cooking sweet pastries from fermented milk products, then I advise, in addition to baking powder, always add a little soda. Pour baking powder into whole-grain wheat flour, sift it all together through a sieve and add to bowl.
Put scalded raisins, quickly knead the dough for muffins, leave it for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, heat the oven to 175 degrees.
Silicone tins for baking cakes grease droplets of vegetable oil (odorless). We fill the molds with dough for 2/3 volumes.
