Lviv cheesecake is a hallmark of Western Ukraine. The dessert is based on cottage cheese mass, to which poppy seeds, various raisins, and candied fruit are added. In the classic version, flour is added to the mass to keep its shape. But it would be much better to use semolina.

The idea of making a fluffy Lviv cheesecake without flour and semolina is published on the receptuk.ua culinary page on Instagram. The curd dough will be very tender, airy and not clogged.

5. First put the raisin mixture into the parchment-lined baking dish, smooth it out, then put the curd mixture with poppy seeds on top. Smooth it out well. Shake the mold several times to ensure that the cottage cheese is well distributed in the mold and does not grow, so that it rises evenly.
