Quesada Pasiega, not quite Cheesecake

Quesada Pasiega is a spanish Cheesecake, that is done for long time in the oven, to create a compact tart.
There are different recipes and way to do one, for now, the one I'll give away here, is the one that seems te easiest and yummiest for me. :)

  • 750 g fresh cheese (or quark, curd, philadelphia, yougrt)
  • 190 g sugar
  • 75 g butter
  • 75 g flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ tbs cinnamon
  • optional: ½ grated lemon or orange


Let the eggs rest and be at roomtemperature, like this, once beating, they go up. So beat the eggs with the sugar for 15 minutes. Melt the butter and add it slowly, then incorporate the cinnamon, grated lemon or orange and the fresh cheese. Beat thoroughly until there a nice mixture, then add the flour and don't let any lumps floating.

The Quesada Pasiega mustn't be higher than 2 cm, while baking it will go up, but go down again once cold, so don't worry. It will be cooked in the oven at 180ยบ for 50 mins. After 30 mins, f it get's golden, you can cover it with foil so the top doesn't get burned.

Then let it cool and serve either single piece or with decoration like berries, etc. Enjoy ;)
