Low fat cheese cake

Submitted by: PERACH

Introduction

In Israel the supermarket sell a lowfat (from .5% - 9%) soft white cheese, about the consistancy of yogurt. I use 500 grams of the 5%. I make it sometimes crustless and sometimes with a mixture of ground almonds and coconut depending on my mood, but for a lowfat cheesecake, it has full flavor but without the heart-ache (double meaning intended).

Ingredients

    Preheat the oven to 180 C.
    1. Separate the egg yolks and whites. Grind the lemon peel.
    2. Mix together the cheeses, vanilla extract (I use a homemade one with vanilla beans soaked in vodka), sugar, lemon juice and lemon grind (the yellow peel) and the egg yolks.
    3. Add the flour. Cornstarch or any flour substitute can be used instead.
    4. Beat the egg whites into a stiff merengue.
    5. Fold the merengue into the cheese batter.
    6. Pour into a spring form. You can prepare a bottom for the cake from sponge cake or a mixture of coconut and ground almonds or crumbled cookies.

    Bake for 1 hour and let cool in oven for 1 hour with the door slightly open.

Tips

After 45 - 50 minutes of baking, check to see that the cake is not burning (it rises considerably while baking). If the cake is in danger, cover it loosely with a piece of alumium foil.
