No affect on the taste. We did not know this was a thing and now we are both craving it.

Same with lithuanian potato pancakes, just add some vodka to the batter. Notify me of new comments via email. The hardest part about making these doughnuts is probably going to be sourcing Lithuanian style curd cheese. While the flavour was similar, the batter was too wet and so the balls did not hold their shape.

This page was last edited on 17 Aprilat My husband and I both love them from one particular cafe where they are extra crispy and quite dark on the outside. I had a vision of a chunk of cheddar sandwiched between two sides of a sugary ring doughnut, similar to a filled bagel.

My conclusion — cottage cheese does not work as an alternative to Lithuanian curd cheese in these doughnuts. However, many people would be put off making the doughnuts if they first had to make their own curd cheese. Any additional tips, other than wetting hands, on making these nicely round in shape? The Lithuanian name is just a literal translation — I think they need to come up with a new one!

I like to grow vegetables and go for long walks with the dog, but mostly I like food – thinking about it, talking about it, travelling in search of it and, of course, eating it. That said, the tastes are similar so I decided to test the recipe using cottage cheese, strained and mashed to resemble the consistency of Lithuanian curd cheese.

A national dish of Lithuania, kugelis is a rich and hearty potato pudding. I tried to adjust the consistency with more flour but the resultant batter was gluey and the doughnuts tough and chewy. I hear you Gary!
