Frauke san, thank you for posting the Russian Chocolate Cheesecake recipe!! You're my friend forever!!! That looks yummy. I'm sure I'll ruin it, but I'm eager to try it out. I <i>think</i> we have measuring tools with markings for grams (I'm in the kitchen so infrequently that I can't remember if they do or don't!!), but I have two questions on ingredients. Please bear with me, as I am a dumb American. (~-^)<P>First, curd cheese. I have a feeling this is the same stuff we call "cottage cheese," in the States, but I want to make sure. Moist white curds that are kind of creamy?<P>Second, the custard packet. Is this a custard mix, like the ones that come in a box, and if so, what is the size of it?<P>Whew...sorry to be a pain.<P>I'm also looking forward to trying the Røde Grøde med Fløde, which sounds very good! I just hope I can keep from blowing up the kitchen...<P>(^-^)<P>Kaichi Satake

Whoa, Danger Will Robinson!<P>Curd Cheese is not cottage cheese! Cottage cheese is that slightly sour sort of bleah stuff with chunks in it. Curd cheese is a kind of soft cheese with a slightly grainy texture but no lumps. It may be sold as just 'soft cheese', although here in the UK that's the full-fat version. Curd cheese is half-fat soft cheese as far as I can make out. It's tangy but not sour. Bit like Fromage Frais, in fact - you could probably substitute that in a pinch.<P>If you've got a German-US English dictionary, look up 'Quark'. No need to deploy the Electron microscope, though - it comes in large tubs <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>So do not, under any circumstances, use cottage cheese, or the Russians will come and get you! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/eek.gif"><P>About the custard - it's been a long time since I last made the cake, but I think it's just custard powder. Actually in the US you may have something more similar to the original German ingredient - Vanilla Pudding. One sachet. In Germany they come in these little cardboard boxes saying 'Serves four', which is a blatant lie. <P>Frauke<p>[This message has been edited by Frauke (edited 06-03-2001).]

Sigh...I'm posting this for dumb Kaichi, as his own login got messed up, last night, and now he can't post. (mwahahaha!!!)<P>Fortunately for him, <i>I</i> can still post, and am willing to do this for him because he's my buddy--that and the fact that he's holding a gun to my head to make me do it.<P><img src="http://www.kyokipress.com/images/icons/wink.gif"><P>
Kai says:<P>Heh...ok, thanks Frauke san! I'm a big dummy...<P>***tries to duck and cover his embarrassed blush***<P>That's kind of what I thought you meant by the custard. And I agree; it doesn't serve four. It barely serves me, and I'm only one. I think...<P>No need to worry about the knitting, either, as I don't knit. I'll probably have to find something else to use in place of the knitting needle--like, say, a tire iron or something.<P>(And thanks, Gen, for letting me use your login...)<P>(~-^)<P>Kaichi Satake

The site has been updated to explain about how to use the custard <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> (you never knew it came with instructions, right?)<P>You use the custard (or vanilla pudding) powder and mix it as it is with the other ingredients.<P>And remember the knitting!<P>Frauke<P>------------------
