Prize-winning cottage cheese cake recipe

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers, and postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


Cottage cheese may be a common diet food, but this prize-winning cottage cheese cake recipe is wholesome goodness for those with a sweet tooth. Just use moderation rather than starvation, for any new year's resolution weight loss goals.

  1. Lets get into the spirit. Make a nice soda cake. Or do things with apples. And Joys cheese cake sounds delicious. Don't tell her. I don't like cheese cake. But my wife loves it.

  2. This sounds really interesting... why not for a cheese cake. never heard of it, but makes sense

  3. I don't like plain cottage cheese but I do love it in baked goods. I also use it for cottage cheese pancakes and if I am out of Ricotta, I substitute cottage cheese. I would like to try this.
