To make this cake, I took ricotta, cooked at home. This significantly reduced the cost. To cook it at home, you need to take a liter of milk, bring it almost to a boil, but do not boil it, and pour in 4 tablespoons of lemon juice. The milk will curdle and the whey will leave. The mixture should be cooled and thrown on a sieve on cheesecloth. Homemade ricotta is ready! I wouldn't replace mascarpone, it gives the cake a delicate creamy taste. If you still decide to replace it, then take thick sour cream or heavy cream. If the filling seems runny, you can add gelatin to stabilize it. I didn't need gelatin, and the ricotta and mascarpone were thick. I also prepared the jam for the coating myself. I took a frozen pitted cherry and cooked it with the addition of a gelfix according to the instructions. It turned out a wonderful cherry jam in just three minutes. But you can take any ready-made jam or jam, only then adjust the sugar to taste. Or you can cook a thick berry jelly, it will also be delicious. Take the berries with sourness, they compensate for the sweetness of the cheese base. Cookies will suit any, it will be delicious chocolate or with the taste of melted milk.
