Mango, apple cake with cottage cheese
I am a sweet addict! I can't live even a day without sweets, this is my biggest weakness:)Though, I try to watch my weight and try to bake healthy treats for my family.
100 grams of butter
100 ml of sour cream
1 tsp of baking soda
Plain flour as needed
200 grams of cottage cheese
200 grams of mango preserve
1 medium sized apple
Half cup of sugar or less (depends on how sweet is mango preserve)
Grate chilled butter and mix with 1 cup of plain flour and start to rub between hands, until it will resemble bread crumbs. Add in 1 tbsp of sugar, egg yolks, b.s and sour cream, mix all together.
Start adding more flour until you will form medium hard dough. Wrap the dough and chill for 1 hour.
Divide the dough in two, one part smaller then the other. Bigger part must be rolled out and layered in to the bottom of the baking pan.
In another dish, mix preserved mango and cottage cheese until smooth.
Slice apple in crescent shapes. Layer mango mixture on top of the layered dough, place apple slices over it.
Whisk egg whites until peak and add in the rest of the sugar. Layer on top of apples.
Now take the smaller part of the dough and grate over egg whites.
Bake in preheated oven until nice golden color. Sprinkle over with powdered sugar while the cake is hot.
Cut and serve. Enjoy this delicious cake!
