A traditional Slovakian dish made with eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. The flavour is similar to that of sweet custard.

IngredientsServes: 6

  • 12 eggs
  • 1 litre milk
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:30min ›Extra time:3hr drying › Ready in:3hr40min

  1. In an electric mixer, beat the eggs until mixed well.
  2. Transfer the eggs to a double boiler and stir in milk, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Cook over a medium heat for 30 minutes. Use a metal slotted spoon and constantly stir the bottom of the pan to prevent scorching.
  3. When the mixture looks just like cooked scrambled eggs, pour it carefully into a cheese cloth-lined colander. Carefully gather the ends of the cheese cloth in your hands and pull them together until the cheese forms into a ball. Tie the cheese cloth tightly at the top of the ball. Tie the cheese cloth ends over a tap and let hang for about 3 hours.
  4. Untie the cleese cloth and wrap the cheese cloth ball in cling film before refrigerating. The cheese will keep for about a week. Slice and serve.

This is the same recipe my family makes for Pascha; we call it hrudka. We have an additional step, though. After the hrudka has firmed up and been refrigerated for awhile, put it into a pan or onto a cookie sheet, top with a good pat of butter, and broil until the top browns. Let it cool, rewrap, and refrigerate again.-10 Apr 2007

My mom made this every year for Easter, but she never used sugar or vanilla or nutmeg, only a little salt. We loved it paired with ham on a sandwhich. Also, she told me never to used an electic mixer for the eggs but I dont know why. Also, I find it is an acquired taste, but I have to have it out at Easter, along with the horseradish beets.-22 Feb 2010

    Sorry for interfering, there is a proposal to take a different path.
