  • Egg yolks - 2 pcs.
  • Butter - 100 g
  • Sour cream - 100 g
  • Sugar - 80 g
  • Vanilla sugar - 20 g
  • Zest of 1/2-1/3 of a small orange (lemon)

2. Add the egg yolks, butter, sour cream, sugar, vanilla sugar, and zest to the cottage cheese. Grind everything again until smooth in a blender.

Preparing the base for the cake

3. Warm the mass in a water bath or in a saucepan over medium heat, without letting it boil. The mass will become more liquid, which is quite normal. Let it cool slightly and add the finely chopped dried apricots.
