Print Recipe


  • 800 g soft cheese cream or cottage cheese
  • 5 pieces whole eggs medium-size
  • 150 g granulated sugar or powdered sugar
  • 80 g semolina
  • 200 ml sour cream
  • 50 g unsalted butter melted
  • 1 sachet vanila sugar
  • 50 g raisins
  • 200 g French glace cherries
  • 1 piece lemon zest


  • Put the cream cheese in a mixing bowl with the five eggs. Over them, pour sugar, semolina and sour cream, add the vanilla sugar and the melted butter.
  • Mix them with an electric mixer and put them in the fridge to rest for about half an hour.
  • After 30 minutes, add fruits like raisins, glace cherries, and the grated lemon peel.
  • Take a springform cake pan, and grease it with butter. Pour all the batter in this form, put it in the preheated oven to 180 degrees and bake it for about 45-50 minutes until it turns golden.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool, then take it out of shape and put it in the fridge to keep it better and slice it more effortless.
  • It can be served either warm before putting it in the fridge or cold with other fruits such as grapes, blueberries or raspberries.


Soak the raisins in hot water and rum essence.
Instead of cream cheese, you can use cottage cheese or curd cheese.
