The Swedish cheesecake (or Swedish curd cake) is very different from an American cheesecake. In Sweden it is sometimes called “Småländsk ostkaka” (Cheesecake from Småland) which refers to the oldest and most traditional recipe using rennet and milk to create the cheese.
In our recipe we have made it simpler by using cottage cheese instead of rennet and milk.
The 14th of November is the day of the Ostkaka (Ostkakans dag) in Sweden. Join us in the celebration of this lovely cake and bake one yourself!
