Great cake! Iâ€™ve used some Croatian types of cheese, so Iâ€™m not sure if I got it right. It tastes as Iâ€™ve got it! I used fresh farmer cheese Iâ€™ve bought at the open market from peasants. I wasnâ€™t sure about measurement (we use metrical system), but it was OK. I havenâ€™t got chocolate so I used raisins soaked in rum. Very good. I also separated yolks and white. I made â€œsnowâ€� from egg white and put it just before baking. It cracked at the top but not too much. Maybe our cheese has more fat? Anyway, great cake, thanks!
