Berry Cottage Cheese Cake

700 g of cottage cheese
3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 3/4 cup berries
5 oz butter
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • Make in large tart pan or cheese cake pan sprayed with Pam.
  • Mix cottage cheese, eggs, sugar and 1 teaspoon of baking powder together until smooth.
  • In a separate small small bowl, mix flour, butter and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.  Chop with a knife into a fine crumb.
  • Sprinkle half of the above crumb evenly over pan.
  • Spread an even layer of half the berries over the sprinkled crumb.  If you are using sour berries, you can sprinkle them with sugar. 
  • Next, pour in the cottage cheese mixture and spread evenly.
  • Dot remaining berries (and a little sugar?) over the cottage cheese mixture.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining crumbs and place in oven, preheated to 140 degrees, for about an hour -- until you get a golden crust.
