Baking together - Cream cheese Pudding

This recipe is adored by my whole family. I so much miss Russian farmer's cheese, which of course you can buy here but it is prohibitively expensive and is not sold everywhere. Oh, all the wonderful recipes that you can make with it! This recipe uses cream cheese but really tastes like it is made with farmer's cheese - for all my Russian readers. For the rest of you - a very easy tasty everyday dessert/snack. Is isn't really a pudding, I guess, my dictionary translated it as baked pudding, but I have never heard of such a thing. Just try it and see for yourself. Kitten could almost make it herself, it is so easy.
2x 8oz packs of cream cheese - softened
3 tbsp sour cream
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
5 tbsp semolina or flour
Raisins if desired

Mix all the ingredients except raisins together.

Add raisins, mix.
Grease a 7x11 inch pan.
Pour the cream cheese mixture in it and bake in a preheated to 350F oven for 50 minutes or until golden and toothpick inserted in a center comes out clean.
Serve with sour cream. If you try it, let me know how you liked it!


  1. Sounds yummy! I will try it out and let you know! I like how it looks like Kitten indeed did it all by herself :)) Such a serious face expression!


  2. :) She is feeling the weight of responsibility. And actually she is doing a decent job now, she can measure (I just level it off and remind her to fill the spoon to the top), throw stuff in and mix, and she greased the pan very thoroughly, I just did the sides.

  3. What a good little helper you have! So nice to have a daughter :) She will be as crafty as her mommy. I am curious to see how your son would turn out :))) He would probably be a nice addition to any woman's life after your training ;))
