Sunday brunch doesn’t have to be the same old thing. We found a delicious sweet and savory tart recipe, a Ukrainian “babka,” that’s become a new brunch favorite in our house. Its cottage cheese and raisin combination is the perfect balance of creamy and sweet.
This protein-rich dish is perfect for a weekend brunch, especially during the holidays when we have family visiting and we want to serve up something yummy. Our cottage cheese and raisin tart goes great with a little salad or fresh fruit on the side. With so many ways to serve up the same old breakfast foods, we love this as an unexpectedly delicious brunch alternative.
