Ukrainian version of cheesecake made from quark/farmer cheese (tvorog) and covered with chocolate glaze. Lviv is a city in western Ukraine – cultural capital and museum. People here loves coffee and there is many café with cakes and pastries.
This recipe adapted from book of famous Ukrainian pastry chef – Daria Tsvek (general circulation publications is about five million copies!). There is some variation for this cake – some adds mashed potato in dough, some bake sirnik with chocolate streusel, some add raisins or dried apricots. I made light version without fruit additions.
