Creamed curd cheese, which is pretty much one of the two main ingredients in this recipe, is one of my favorites when I need a quick and filling snack. As it is full of protein, I usually increase fats in the already full-fat version of curd cheese by adding a couple of egg yolks and mixing it altogether. Usually with a spoon of erythritol or a hint of stevia, and/or a few drops of vanilla extract.
Well, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t want to take this quick snack onto a whole different level – a cake! A filling keto cheesecake. But a cake without a crust tends to become boring …
I’ve always liked poppy seed desserts, and where I come from, such are relatively popular. Poppy seeds are full of fiber, nearly as fatty as nuts, and can replace flour to some degree. So I’ve decided they would become the second main ingredient of this creation.
Since many of the ingredients come from the Alps (curd and creams), I call this one Keto Alpine Poppyseed Cheesecake. I know, I could think of a shorter name, and I might soon. This dessert has become so popular among my friends and family, I have to keep baking it. I think one could replace curd cheese with ricotta, and I’ll let you know when I try it out!
Trust me, this one is really worth the effort! Take a cool piece out of the fridge, take a bite, close your eyes, let it melt in your mouth, and picture yourself somewhere among the Alps …
