Kuchen de ricotta (Ricotta Küchen)




This recipe is a really vintage , and I found it in a magazine  of my mom gave me.
 it's a really delicious küchen ricotta.

Küchen  are something special here in Chile and we    these recipes from German colonies.
For many years there was here an adorable Tearoom  called "Cafe Paula"were they doing the best cakes and pastries, and one of their specialties was the cottage cheese or ricotta kuchen.
It was my favorite when I was to "Cafe Paula".








Really I was happy find  this recipe and discover that is as delicious as remembered.
enjoy! -

Küchen de ricotta















Del Café Paula muchos se deben acordar, durante años fue de los mejores Salones de Té de Santiago, junto con el Santos.
(Por lo menos en el centro) 
Yo trabajé muchos años en el centro asi que muchas veces almorzé allí o me junté con amigas a tomar el té.
Era estupendo.
Los pasteles y las tortas y los sandwichs de pollo pimiento o pollo con palta.
Bueno uno de mis preferidos era el kuchen de riccotta o quesillo con unas pasas pequeñas. 
Esta es la receta y estoy feliz de haberla encontrado.









Ingredientes

400 gramos de ricotta o quesillo 
(si se usa quesillo debe ser de los blandos porque hay que molerlo)
1 taza de crema espesa
4 cucharadas de azucar
 4 cucharadas de harina sin polvos de hornear
 2 cucharaditas de polvos de hornear
2 cucharadas de pasas corinto
ralladura fina de una naranja
3 huevos
3 cucharaditas azúcar en polvo
1 cucharadita canela en polvo

  22. Gloria, Great recipe and a terrific looking Kuchen! This posting also motivated me to research the influence of German immigrants in Chile. Very interesting with about 500,000 descendants living in Chile today... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Thanks David! Is absolutely true!! The most of them arrived in the South of Chile. Was about between 1800 and 1900.
