At first glance it may seem that the curd with flour is cheesecakes, cottage cheese casserole, but not a cake blank. But if you take a closer look at this method of cooking biscuit and understand, then the cottage cheese cake can be a favorite recipe for housewives, thanks to its simplicity and guaranteed success in its preparation. Let's just see.
Cheesecake sponge cake - the basic technological principles
Comparison always gives the opportunity to see the advantages of one or another method, helps to make the right choice. No, no one calls to abandon the traditional technology of making biscuit semis in a cold or hot way, or on an oil basis. Everyone chooses what they are used to, what works best.
We compare. For a classic sponge cake, we take flour, sugar and eggs. Let us leave aside for the time flavoring and aromatic additives that do not affect the splendor of the semi-finished product, the convenience of cooking.
A lush, classic sponge cake is made by correctly beating eggs, adding sugar and flour correctly. The proportion of dry and wet ingredients - 50/50. These are quite feasible conditions, if not for one, the most jewelery stage in preparation, because of which many beginners and even experienced housewives do not like to bake homemade cakes, but prefer to buy them, even knowing that there is nothing better than homemade dessert . This “cunning” stage is the mixing of dry flour with eggs, which are already perfectly whipped, and their pomp cannot be destroyed in any way so that the sponge cake does not turn into a heavy, tough and coarse cake. Careless movement - the dessert is spoiled, we must start all over again, and think about what use to find spoiled products.
Not everything is so sad. You can add margarine or butter - you get tasty muffins. However, if we take into account the volume and weight of four eggs, a cup of flour and a cup of sugar (the average amount of ingredients for a biscuit cake), then you will have to add too much butter, it will be very fat, and the cupcake is not the goal, but you need a cake for cake. We take out a pack of cottage cheese from the fridge, add, beat, for greater confidence in the rise - a spoon of soda, and the problem is solved! What changed? And here's what: the dough was saved by a fermented milk product, with a content of casein (milk protein), lactic acid, which in reaction with soda released carbon dioxide, again providing the lost pomp to the semi-finished product. If you look even more closely, then the ratio of liquid and dry matter in the dough is also not broken, which means that the sponge cake will have the necessary moisture and elasticity, and the dessert will be a success. And it's all!
Details can be thought out in the process, but the principle is already clear. Just do not get carried away by the addition of cottage cheese. Milk and egg whites, despite their similar properties, while whipping and baking, still have a different taste, and casein, moreover, has a greater density after exposure to high temperatures. From an excess of cottage cheese biscuit can get tighter and "rubber".

Cottage Cheese Sponge Cake - Tips & Tricks
Soda in combination with fermented milk products is never noticeable in the finished product, unless, of course, to abuse it. Therefore, add it to any dough, combining with a small amount of kefir, yogurt or sour cream.
Do not believe it when they say that soda should first be quenched with acid, and then added to the dough when it has already entered into the reaction, released into the air all the carbon dioxide that had to stand out in the dough to make it lush. Combine the soda with flour and other dry ingredients, and add the acid to the liquid part of the dough. Do not rush, at the same time, send the finished dough into the oven. Give it a “think” because the soda should dissolve slightly in the liquid, start interacting with the acidic ingredients, and release at least a little gas before the dough is baked in the oven.
In unleavened dough, “with the participation of soda,” it is especially good to add some strong alcoholic beverages. Baking get more lush, fragrant.
For sweet teeth: if you like very sweet pastries, then it is better to add sugar to the filling or cream. A large amount of sugar in the dough makes it dry, crumbly and brittle. Because of the large amount of sugar, the biscuit dough rises badly and burns.
