The composition of many sweet curd casseroles includes: raisins, dried apricots, flour, etc., but we will try to make a classic version of the dessert (this is exactly the casserole that is traditionally served to children in each kindergarten), which you next time be able to add any of your favorite ingredients based on previous experience.
You will need 4 servings:
- 300 g of cottage cheese;
- 2 chicken eggs;
- 100 ml of condensed milk or 100 g of granulated sugar;
- 3 tbsp. semolina;
- 2 pinches of salt;
- drain. oil for lubrication form.
Having decided to cook a cottage cheese casserole as a kindergarten, first purchase the cottage cheese and be sure to taste it before you buy it, otherwise you risk to buy a low-quality product. For baking, not too greasy and not sour cottage cheese is perfect, which will not produce extra liquid. Divide chicken eggs into whites and yolks in different containers. When using homemade eggs, your casserole will become more orange in color.
Boil the water and pour boiling water over the semolina, giving it time to swell while you do the rest of the cooking steps. That semolina will be the basis for wheat casserole.
Mash cottage cheese with a fork and pour condensed milk or granulated sugar into it - what is available.
Add the cottage cheese to a bowl of chicken yolks and mix the whole mixture thoroughly to make it more uniform. It is at this stage that you can add raisins, dried apricots, etc., to the dough, only be sure to roll them in wheat flour beforehand, otherwise the dried fruits will remain at the bottom during baking and because of them the curd dough will not rise.
Beat the chicken proteins with a mixer for about 7-10 minutes until creamy with a few pinches of salt.
Add the swollen semolina to the curd mixture and either puree or whisk using a mixer to distribute the cereal evenly throughout the mass.
Introduce proteins into the egg mass with gentle movements, taking care not to interrupt the air bubbles.
Grease a baking dish with butter, going to the sides and pour the curd dough into it.
Place the casserole in the oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes at 180 ° C. If suddenly the surface of the casserole already acquires a ruddy crust, and when piercing the wooden toothpick becomes wet, turn off the upper heating and bake the dish on the lower 5-7 minutes. Allow the finished casserole to cool for 10-15 minutes without removing it from the oven, and then remove and remove it from the mold onto the dish.
Sprinkle the dessert with powdered sugar and cut it into portions, serving freshly brewed tea. Enjoy your meal!
