Pashka

all details

This Russian fare is first decorated with a cross and blessed before being served on Easter Sunday. Essentially a crustless cheesecake, it is perfect served with fresh strawberries. The mixture can easily be doubled or tripled, and made in one large mould for a crowd. It is also delicious spread on toast or brioche.
