"Fake" in this case means that I use cottage cheese instead of milk and cheese curd, but otherwise it is a very good classic Swedish dessert which, in my opinion, should be enjoyed with whipped cream and cloudberry jam.

According to wikipedia, it is known that this Swedish dessert has existed since 1538, but also that it is probably much older than that.

Ostkakan also has its own day. Since 2004, this day has been celebrated on November 14.

You can also serve the cake with different types of jam and of course fresh berries such as raspberries, currants, cherries and blueberries.
