Russian sweet cottage cheese bake

Linna is a bigger help in the kitchen than Nelle. Nelle would love to live in the city but Linna dreams of walks in the woods, mushroom picking and bike rides.

Linna is like me… so we baked together! This dish reminds me of my childhood in the kindergarten and school too. I loved Biezpiena sacepums (cottage cheese bake) with ķīselis (kissel).


This was a big portion for… I don’t know for 10 people I guess!?
