Need some Polish dessert recipes

I used ready made cheese coz grinding it last time was drudgery.

Huh? What cheese are you using normally to grind it? I just buy ready made tubs of Twaróg mielony. I do have a vague memory of some cheese not being minced though....

instead added condensed milk and pudding mix.

That's a new one on me! Pudding mix, do you mean budyń? That seems to go into a few Polish desserts. How did the experiment turn out?

they can be quite filling and heavy on the stomach

After 2 or 3 portions, yes :)

Bars or packets of unground twaróg are in big selection.

Yes, budyń.

Well, the cheesecake is OK, but to me it is again a little failure coz it is too fluffy. It is wet and heavy but too delicate to my teeth, I need sth more al dente. I wonder if I didn`t add too much whisked egg white. I used 11 eggs for 2 kilos cheese. The recipe mentions 6 eggs per kilo.

Grinding twaróg - not my photos - mine are still in the camera..

In case you want to try it out:

In that recipe it says to use unsweetened condensed milk. In the UK, we only have sweetened which is thick, pale yellow and very sweet. I looked up unsweetened condensed milk and it is the same as evaporated milk. The taste of evaporated milk is completely different to condensed milk, and appearance wise, it is off-white and runny. It used to be used years ago as a substitute for milk in coffee. Is this what you used?

I wonder if I didn`t add too much whisked egg white.

That would definitely put lots of air into it. I wonder what it would be like without the addition of egg whites. It would certainly be denser. BTW, it also mentions adding 1 budyń in that recipe. Is that just the powder not mixed with milk? I have used budyń before in desserts but have made it up with milk as you would for custard, which is basically what it is.

No, I used sweetened milk coz that`s what we had at home. Because of that, I added only one glass of sugar instead of two.

You can still buy unsweetened condensed milk milk though it is getting rare, replaced by evaporated milk.

I took a few pieces to work and found out more faults: watery and crumbling. So, nearly a complete failure. The previous one was better. Don`t try this recipe out, it is worthless. hahaha

Or..... ! Was it because I used ready made cheese? It looked like farmer`s cheese that you eat with a teaspoon. It was probably the culprit.

Well, I will check the recipe out again with cheese ground before my eyes.

To be honest, I prefer cheesecakes with a pastry base. I feel like there's something missing if it's just cheese. You'll just have to try out other recipes. A friend of mine makes Sernik Wiedeński which is quite heavy, and she puts raisins in it too.

Really? It looked like cottage cheese? I haven't made a cheesecake for a while now, but I don't remember the cheese in tubs I used as looking like that. I forget the brand I used now though. I don't think I've ever bought Twaróg in the unminced form.

Not yet. I am going to use the same one but with freshly ground cheese.

It looked like cottage cheese?

Yes, and when I opened the tub there was a little water on top. That could be the reason.

Polish Cheesecake is one of my favourites, especially with raisins.

It's my most favourite dessert Milo, I have made a few different ones now. I might make one this week as I'm currently off work, and need to find something to do :) I particularly like sernik z rosą.

Do you you cheesecake cheese from Polish shop or some British equivalent?

From a Polish shop Lenka. There isn't really a British equivalent. I wouldn't use cottage cheese for it. The closest cheese to Twaróg is one called Quark, which I have seen only in the last couple of years over here, but is common in the US. I expect supermarkets stock Twaróg Sernikowy in the Polish section, but I prefer going to the Polish shops as I usually pick up things there that I know the supermarkets won't have.

To much work.
I make a no bake cheese cake using cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, vanilla and a graham cracker crust garnished with chopped strawberries.
Very easy and very good.
Recipe available by PM.

Easy but not for me sadly. I hate not baked cheese cake

Thanks for the heads up Lenka.
When you come to my house to break bread I will be sure to buy the fanciest one the bakery has just for you.
I do aim to please my friends.

Now that is one I haven't tried so I need to remedy this! It looks really tasty.
