Pumpkin is a great vegetable, which you can use practically in every type of dish. This time we have an idea for pumpkin cheesecake with orange peel topped with white yoghurt-chocolate icing.

Sounds interesting? Let’s do it, as it’s quick and easy.

  2. Mix the pumpkin puree with dry cottage cheese.
  3. Keep mixing it while adding one by one all the ingredients: orange peel, vanilla sugar, vanilla extract, potato starch, creamy pudding powder and sugar.
  4. At the end add eggs and mix for another 5 minutes.

How would you decorate your cheesecake? You can pour it all over the cake or make a pattern, e.g. a flower, checkered or cobweb.
