Hello everyone (:
Tonight I have a nice recipe for you. It’s a simple, basic cheescake, which you can quickly transform into something more extra, just by adding some interesting toppings like toffee and bananas or chocolate ganache and fresh fruit.
(you can also skip preparing the base yourself by using store-bought biscuits)
- 1 (cold) unsalted butter (200g)
- 1.5 cup rice flour
- 1 cup corn flour
- 1/2 cup xylitol
- 1 egg
- 1 kg (finely minced) white cottage cheese
- 3/4 cup xylitol (you can add less if you plan to top the cheescake with something super sweet e.g. caramel)
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 packets of vanilla pudding mix (sugarfee)
- 5 eggs
- vanilla extract or seeds from a vanilla stick
Put flours, xylitol and butter (chopped into small cubes) in a large bowl. Chop the ingredients, with a knife first, and then knead them with fingers until they resemble bread crumbs. Add an egg and mix everything thoroughly.
Place the dough on a baking pan, spread it uniformly.
Beat up the egg whites with a pinch of salt, until they are stiff.
Mix the egg yolks with xylitol. Add the white cheese, both packs of the pudding mix and vanilla extract. Pour in the milk and mix everything thoroughly.
Then delicately stir in the stiff egg whites.
Pour the cheesecake batter onto the prepared dough (or, if you are using the biscuits, just grease the pan with some oil/butter, and cover it with 2 layers of crushed cookies).
Add some fresh fruit on top if you want.
Bake around 75 minutes in the oven preheated to 160°C.
It’s best to leave it in the truned off, slightly open oven, to avoid the temperature shock, which might make its height drop.
When it cools down, top with whatever you fancy 😉
GOOD ADVICE: IT GETS TASTIER WITH TIME!!! TASTES WAY BETTER IF YOU LEAVE IT ALONE FOR AT LEAST A DAY.
Though I know it might be hard to do that….
