On the Polish Easter table there are Easter cakes, mazurka, cheese cakes and poppy seed cakes. Paschal dish is another typical Easter dessert. It comes from the north of Russia. Traditionally, it is prepared with cottage cheese, cream, butter, eggs, sugar and dried fruit.
My sister-in-law usually prepares paschal dish for Easter in our home. We like this sweet creamy dessert very much. I think that my husband loves it the most, because last year he asked for paschal dish for Christmas.
Today, I would like to share with you the recipe for a different, chocolatey version of paschal dish. We liked it. My children especially loved it. They asked for thick chocolate glaze on top. I made an excellent dish for chocolate lovers. It will be a permanent fixture on our menu, not only during Easter.
The recipe comes from the online Lidl cookery book.
500g of cottage cheese
150g of dark chocolate
100g of butter
30g of cocoa
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
100g of dried cranberries
