Heaven cake with marscapone, cottage cheese and strawberries


Hi Dears! 
Do You have a dessert custom for Easter
Since it will be next week, I'm thinking about it for a while, what to bake/make for dessert. 
Here the usual dishes are boiled eggs with ham and milk loaf. 
But milk loaf is not a dessert in my opinion, it's a really tasty bread-like pastry, which happens to be sweet. We eat it as a side-dish with the ham, and sometimes with jam or with the nice company of honey and butter. 
Usually I bake a cake, or funny, fruity muffins for the occasion. Like my Bunny cake which I made 2 years ago. 
So if You have any suggestion, please leave a comment here. :) 

But now I brought a no-bake cake, that I made for a family gathering (again). 
It was a huge success, with the light creamy marscapone and cottage cheese.
 It was really like a tasty cloud from Heaven, and the strawberries were like the angels sitting perfectly on the cotton wool-like-cake.

For the base of the cake I used diabetic crushed cookies, just because I had them, but any cookies would make it perfect. :)
Ingredients:
  • 200 g = 4/5 cup of crushed cookies (1 general package)
  • 50 g= 1/5 cup of butter/margarine (melted)
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • ----
  • 250 g = 1 cup of marscapone (1 little box)
  • 500 g = 2 cups of cottage cheese
  • 250 ml = 1 cup of whipped cream (1 little box)
  • 2 tbsp of vanilla sugar
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 150 g = 3/5 cup of icing/powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp of sour cream
  • -----
  • 500 g = 2 cups of fresh strawberries

Preparation:

1. Crush the cookies with a blender. Pour the melted margarine/butter , and 2 tablespoons of water to it, and mix it well with a fork, then with your hand. 

2. Push this pastry on the surface of a circle shaped baking mold.

3. Put the marscapone and the cottage cheese in a bigger bowl. Add the sour cream and the lemon juice, then the powdered sugar to it. Stir it well.


4. In another bowl whisk the whipped cream with 2 tbsp of vanilla sugar.
Then gently add it to the cheesy cream.

5. Wash the strawberries well, cut it up as many times as You want, and place some of the slices on the cookie pastry.


6. Then pour a little cream on it, and  repeat this until You run out of the ingredients.



7. Decorate the top with the rest of the strawberries, and cool the cake for about 3-4 hours in the fridge.



Enjoy!
