      Found this recipe looking for a simple cake that uses cottage cheese. And this was it, but it was much more elegant than I expected! Fragrant, moist, unusual. The spices did not overwhelm the cake, which was nice, and the lemon and orange flavors did come through too. Being lazy, I didn't bother sieving the cottage cheese (it was pretty small curds to start with). Next time I think I would even skip the bread crumbs; I was out of them and used cookie crumbs instead but it didn't seem like that added too much anyhow. We served it with chocolate ice cream this time because that's what we had, but I think it would be fantastic with vanilla ice cream, or on its own as a coffee cake. Thanks for posting!
