If you’re looking for a quick tutorial on how to make Quesada Pasiega, a type of Spanish cheesecake, you’ve come to the right place. You may have eaten Quesada Pasiega while on holiday in the Cantabria region of Spain or have even been served it by a chef from that region. All I know is it’s one of the simplest Spanish desserts to make and, although it doesn’t use cheese but instead something called ‘cuajada’ (milk curd you can find in most Spanish supermarkets), it still tastes enough like a cheesecake you’ll really love it.
You can eat Quesada Pasiega by itself or even with a spoon or two of homemade jam. Gorgeous! And, like they tell you on the video, if you can’t find cuajada, ricotta cheese will work almost as well.
The video below is by a YouTube channel called ‘Recipes from Spain‘. They create simple Spanish dishes in very easy steps and all explained in English. They list all the ingredients you need and show you what to do with them to get the desired effect. Couldn’t be better or more authentically Spanish, right?
