Gentle curd cake "Tears of an angel." Step by step recipe

  1. Prepare the bottom layer: mix the baking powder with dry ingredients - flour, salt, sugar.
  2. Take the oil. Three through a grater, dipping into flour, so as not to stick and melt less. Grind into crumbs.
  3. Add sour cream, do not knead much. We collect the dough in a lump.
  4. Prepare the form. We cover it with parchment.
  5. Tip. If the form is silicone, then it is not necessary to cover it.
  6. We level the shortbread dough evenly, forming the sides. I use the shape of 18 centimeters: if more, then the cake will be slightly lower.
  7. We pierce the dough with a fork below: so it will not be inflated. Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.
  8. For the cake “Tears of an angel” from the curd dough we make the second layer. Grind cottage cheese through a sieve or using a blender: until soft, without lumps. It is advisable to take cottage cheese natural.
  9. Pour vanilla and regular sugar, sour cream and yolks into the curd (leave the proteins on the next layer). Stir with a spoon until smooth.
  10. On a sandy basis, immediately distribute the layer of cottage cheese. At the same temperature (180 degrees), bake for 30 minutes. The mass must grab on top.
  11. 10 minutes before preparing the curd layer, prepare the last layer of proteins.
  12. Beat the remaining proteins with the addition of powdered sugar. If you use regular sugar, then it will take a little longer. The mass should become thick, but at the same time drain from a spoon.
  13. When the protein layer is ready, carefully level it on top of the curd. As you level it, so it is baked.
  14. Bake another 10-15 minutes, leaving the temperature 180 degrees. Bake until creamy top.
  15. We take out the finished pie with the tears of the angel curd from the oven, cool in the form for 2-3 hours: after about one hour, the droplets on top that we were waiting for will begin to appear! Over time, they become more and more, the droplets acquire a cream color.
  16. Before serving the curd pie, it should be cooled (in the refrigerator) for at least one hour: thus, the curd layer in the pie will become denser - it will be more convenient to cut it. Curd pie at home - it's easy!

Of course, I could not resist! Cut into pieces in a few hours. The recipe for a shortcake with cottage cheese is very simple! And the cake is delicious, delicate and beautiful. It is not difficult to cook it: it decorates itself - surprise your relatives and friends. Cook with me and "Very tasty": you will surely succeed! Enjoy your meal!
