|3 ingredient cheesecake|
What makes it even more incredible is that it uses only three ingredients.
I lie not.
The recipe is as follows:
120gm (4.3 oz) white chocolate
120gm (4.3 oz) cream cheese
Preheat the oven to 170°C (338°F)
Cut baking paper to fit your cake tin. Line the tin and butter well. This will prevent the cake from cracking as it bakes.
Separate the eggs and place the whites in a bowl. Leave the egg whites in the fridge until you require them (that makes the meringue more stable.)
Break the chocolate into pieces and soften in a bowl placed over hot water (double boiler).
When they are melted, add the cream cheese and mix well. Remove from the heat and add the egg yolks. Again - mix well.

Then add 1/3 of the meringue mixture to the cream cheese mixture and mix in gently with a spatular. Add another 1/3, and finally the last 1/3 mixing gently each time.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and knock gently on the counter to remove large air bubbles. Place in the oven and bake at 170°C (338°F) for 15 minutes, 160°C for 15 minutes, and then switch off the oven and bake with the remaining heat for a final 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave on a wire rack to cool.
I coated the top of the cheesecake with a homegrown granadilla reduction.
RMan's conclusion. Delicious. He wiped most of it lol
Plus, I have a sneaky feeling that I can adapt it to a solar oven recipe...
So, I'm going to try that next summer.
The only problem I encountered - I presumed that my baking tin was "normal" but it was too wide - the recipe asked for a 15cm (6 inch) baking tin, and my smallest was 22cms (9 inches) and the cake, although risen, was "spreadeagled". So - either next time I use a smaller tin, or I make double.
What a stress!! bwahahaha
Whilst I was at it I decided to make John's Amish coleslaw from the recipe which he had been very kind enough to send me

That, too, worked well, and now resides in my pantry :)
Dont'cha love it when plans come together?
