While growing up in Montreal, I had a friend whose mother came from Latvia. She used to make a really delicious plain white cake that she called "cheese cake" because it had grated white cheese in it (mixed through it). You could use any white cheese, like Havarti, or Mozzarella, or Colby, etc. And you would eat it like a snacking cake - no icing.
I've looked everywhere to find a recipe for this cake, and I've tried a few of my own versions, but I can't quite nail it.
And I'm not sure if it was even a Latvian cake, because I asked a different Latvian lady about it a couple of months ago, and it didn't ring a bell with her.
Does anybody have a recipe?
