Sweet cream, either poured or whipped is not used in traditional Polish cooking.
Soured cream with the addition of a little icing sugar is often used to drizzle over sweet dishes such as pierogi with fruit fillings or with Polish style pancakes.
I have previously made a super beetroot & chocolate cake and topping this with a lemon butter icing.
This time I just wanted a lighter pouring sauce to go with the cake.
- 100g of yoghurt cheese or cream cheese
- 100g of icing sugar
- Grated rind of 2 lemons
- Juice from 1 lemon.
- Mix all the ingredients together to give a smooth sauce.
The contrast between the sauce and the rich cake is super.
