    My mother and grandmother used to make Kuga (not sure of spelling). It was like a cheese cake, had cottage cheese, cream, eggs, spinkled with cinnamon and sugar and was baked in a pie pan lined with a bread type crust. Does anyone out know what I'm talking about and have that recipe. I have been looking for over a year on the internet and cannot find anything close to it.

    Thank you Molly53 for your suggestions, however none of them were what I was looking for. It had no noodles, no sour cream, no fruit or vegetables. It was very basic, just eggs, dry curd cottage cheese, sugar, and cream. Poured in a bread type crust. I know what went into it I just don't know how much of each item. Who knows maybe gramma made it up. But it was something I always craved for and she always made it when I asked. It has to be out there somewhere.

    I am not familiar with Kuga, although I have made and eaten German coffeecakes many times. The dry curd cottage cheese is called "Quark" in German.

    I did some searchign and did find this version for you:
    http://home.sprynet.com/~csteinhauer/out-of-the-past/kuga.htm

    and this as well

    and this :

    From what I have read while searching online, a Kuga is actually German-Russian cake, so you might also have some luck searchign Russian recipes as well.

    My grandma used to make the same thing! I have been trying to figure out how to make it, my mom doesn't really know the recipe. She also made apple kuchen, which was basically apple pie made in the yeast dough.
    It is the proportions I'm not sure of: it was eggs, evaporated milk, cottage cheese, sugar and cinnamon.

    Well, here's one recipe from Grandpa's family. I don't know if this is right but at least its definitely German!!!
    250 grams. flour
    125 grams cold butter in pieces
    1 egg yolk
    3 to 4 Tbsp cold water
    Sift the flour, add the butter and make a fine crumb mixture. Add the egg yolk and water and mix until it makes a soft dough. Roll this out between 2 sheets of plastic wrap for the pie crust.
    16 oz cottage cheese(cottage cheese here is dryer than stateside so you might let it drain a bit)
    2 tsp flour
    2 eggs, separated, whip egg whites until stiff
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1 cup sugar
    1Tbsp butter
    2 Tbsp cream or milk
    Mash cottage cheese well or press through a wire strainer.
    Beat egg yolks, add the cottage cheese and remaining ingredients, then fold in egg whites. Pour into pie curst, sprinkle with cinamon and make in moderate(350-375) oven for 30 minutes or until brown.

    This sounds like the coffee cakes that are very popular in Latvian cuisine but my Latvian friends bake them in a 9" x 13" pan. If you can wait until I get home tonight, I will post the recipes for you. icon_smile.gif

    Here is the recipe I posted - they were really fast today!
    Apple or Cheese Flatbread[recipe=]

    It's the same base for both cakes so it was easier to post it as one recipe with the two variations. If you want all apple or all cheese, just double the quantity of the topping.

    I too am interested in finding the kuga recipe you discussed previously. My Nana (great-grandmother) used to make it when she made doughnuts, and she topped it with sugar, cinnamon and cream or something. My dad has an idea of the recipe but not exact measurements.

    Were you ever able to find this recipe?

    My mother made a similar recipe. It has a yeast sweet dough and cottage cheese is mixed with half and half, raisins and sugar and poured over the top prior to baking. Would you want this recipe?
    I made it last week and it was delicious. This is my late mom's recipe. She was German.

    Cheese Coffee Cake (Kase Kuchen) This recipe is in my late mother's hand writing. She made her own cottage cheese and in later years had to use the purchased type and always said it never was quite as good...
    4 1/2 to 5 1/2 cups unsifted all purpose flour (place in bowl)
    1/2 c. sugar
    1 1/2 tsp. salt
    2 packages active dry yeast
    1/2 c. 2 % or whole milk (I used skim)
    1/2 c. water
    1/4 c. butter or veg. shortening
    2 beaten eggs
    In a large bowl, thoroughly mix 1 1/2 c. flour, sugar, salt and yeast.
    Combine milk, walter and butter or shortening in sauce pan (I use butter). Heat over low heat until liquids are warm (120 to 130 degrees F) . Gradually add to dry ingredients and beat two minutes with electric mixer.
    Add eggs and 1/2 cup of the flour or enough flour to make a thick batter. Beat for about two minutes. Remove beaters
    Add most of remaining flour to make a soft dough and turn out on floured board. Knead until smooth. Place in greased bowl. Let rise about one hour. Punch it down. Let it rise again, about 1/2 hour. Shape and place in a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Cover with filling. Let it rise 1/2 hour. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. melted butter and bake at 275 degrees F until set, approximately 30 to 45 minuts.
    Cheese Filling'
    1 carton small curd cottage cheese
    3 beaten eggs.
    1/2 c. sugar
    1 and 3/4 c. half and half
    1/2 c. raisins (cover raisins with boiling water thickened with cornstarch and let set while mixing dough and drain well before adding to cheese filling)
    1 tsp. cornstarch
    Combine and pour slowly over top of dough in baking pan.
    Note: When making raisin bread, this cook advises in order to keep the raisins from popping out of the dough, scald raisins in a little water thickened with cornstarch.
