The traditional Swedish cheesecake is nothing like the velvet smooth American cousin, but a grainy almond flavoured pudding similar in consistency to baked cottage cheese. It's served warm, plain or with jam. I adore it.
Homemade always taste better, but is time consuming. I don't mind cheating with cheese cake or ostkaka from Frödinge, the dairy company founded in 1929.
Imagine how badly I've been wanting to sample the ostkaka with saffron, the Swedish christmas spice No.1. Gah! It's enough to consider a christmas in Sweden next year.
