Smalandsk ostkaka (Swedish cheese cake)

  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup fructose or sugar
  • 2 cups of light cream or plain soy milk
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped almonds

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Grease a 10” fluted pie pan or 8” cake pan. Pour mixture into pan. Bake at 350°F for one hour, or until knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream and jelly, or frozen raspberries (or lingonberries if you can get them).

And for the weekend: Glögg

Glögg is a traditional beverage drunk by Swedes in the winter months. The traditional recipe is made with sherry and brandy; here is a non-alcoholic version of the mulled wine. This is a warming drink to enjoy after time spent in the wintry outdoors. For those not competing just replace the apple cider of non-alcoholic wine with sherry and brandy!

  • 6 cups apple cider of non-alcoholic wine
  • ¾ cup blanched almonds
  • 5 sticks cinnamon
  • 10 cloves
  • 1 cup organic raisins
  • 10 cardamom pods

Simmer the spices in just enough cider or wine to cover for 15 minutes in a small saucepan. Once it has simmered, bottle the contents of the saucepan with the remainder of the cider or wine. Let sit for 1-3 days, warm thoroughly before serving. Always serve warmed.
