    Lucy's Basque Cheesecake





    • Ingredients

      1kg of cream cheese (room temperature)
      6 eggs
      335g castor sugar
      400g sour cream
      Zest of 2 lemons
      2 tablespoons cornflour
      ½ teaspoon salt




      Method

      Preheat oven to 200c
      Line the base of a large circular springform tin (about 22cm), and grease 
the edges with butter
      Cut the cream cheese into small pieces, place in the blender with all other ingredients. *tip - it might be helpful to do this in parts separating the mixture into 2 or even 4, depending the size of your blender/vitamix/ nutribullet. Blend until smooth
      Pour mixture into the tin
      Bake for 50-60 minutes, you're looking for a slight wobble in the centre, 
while the top of your cake should be a burnish brown
