Bread Crumb Dessert
- 300g fresh black rye bread
- 30g butter
- 100g sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 300g lean cottage cheese
- 200g 30% fat sour cream
- 1 tbsp. vanilla sugar
- 250ml cranberry or lingonberry jam
Cut the bread into slices, rip them into pieces and rub them with your fingers including the crust into crumbs.
Melt the butter in a large frying pan, add crumbs, add 50 grams of sugar and cinnamon. Stir and fry for 5 minutes while constantly stirring. Take the pan of the heat and leave to cool.
Run cottage cheese through a sieve. Beat it with sour cream, remaining sugar and vanilla sugar in a large bowl.
Layer the dessert in glasses or little jars: pour a layer of crumbs, add a layer of cheese mixture and a layer of jam. The top layer should be the cheese mixture.
If using jars, screw the tops on, if glasses – cover them with a cling film. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or preferably overnight.
This dessert is delicious both refrigerated and at room temperature. Keep refrigerated and consume within three days.
