Ready for dessert? I got an easy recipe for you!Cuisine: LithuanianDifficulty: Easy
This recipe I got from my friends Evaldas and Indre over 20 years ago. It’s very easy to make and pretty light treat. It looks very beautiful, intimidating (but it’s not) and it is called “Angel’s Tear”, because when it cools down it gets a tiny drops, like tears on the top.
It has 3 layers, sounds complicated, but it’s not. Use the same bowl without even cleaning it for first 2 layers.
- For the 1st layer
180 g or 3/4 cups of butter or margarine
3 egg yolks
3 tbsp. of sugar
1 tsp. of baking soda
4 tbsp. of sour cream
10 tbsp. of all purpose flour
- For the 2nd layer
400 g or 14 oz. of farmers cottage cheese (if you have trouble finding, please let me know I will tell you how to make it at home just from milk and lemon juice)
1 tbsp. of corn starch
3 tbsp. of sugar
1-2 tbsp. of sour cream
- For the 3rd layer
3 egg whites
1/2 cup of sugar
Let’s make it
- Preheat the oven to 355 F
- Lightly grease 9 inch spring form or any other similar size baking dish.
- 1st layer
- Melt butter.
- Add egg yolks (save the whites), sugar and beat lightly with the hand mixer.
- Add baking soda to sour cream (to activate the baking soda and remove unpleasant taste), mix and add it to the batter, keep beating.
- Add flour, keep mixing just until incorporated.
- Place the batter in the baking dish and even it out with the spatula.
- 2nd layer
- To the farmers cottage cheese add corn starch, sugar and sour cream, and beat with the hand mixer.
- Place it in the baking dish on the 1st layer and even it out with the spatula.
- 3rd layer
- Wisk egg whites until becomes frothy.
- Gradually add sugar and beat until very stiff peaks form. If you turn the bowl over, nothing moves. It will look very white and glossy.
- Place on the 2nd layer and with spatula or spoon make some waves like snowdrifts.
- Bake at 355 F for 30 min or until lightly brown.
- Let it cool completely before you slice it, other wise it will be runny.
