Cottage Cheese Donuts


A delight in Sunday afternoons was to eat delicious cottage cheese donuts made after our grandmother’s recipe and served with raspberry or apricots jam. 

Mix the Cheese With Ingredients

Put the cottage cheese in the bowl and add the egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, and lemon zest. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated.

Donuts Dough

Take the egg whites and beat them until you get a foam. Mix all the cheese ingredients with flour and incorporate the egg foam.

Frying Donuts

Heat the sunflower oil and, using two spoons or wet hands, make not too large balls that we put to fry. Fry them for one to two minutes on each side until they get a golden colour.

Fried Cottage Cheese Donuts

After the donuts are fried, take them out in a bowl lined with a paper towel and continue to finish all the dough.

Serving the Donuts

These cottage cheese donuts are served sprinkled with powdered sugar and with raspberry or peach jam.
