How to make the Soufflé Cheesecake
120g white chocolate
120g cream cheese
15cm cake tin
Method (Serves 6, 230kcal per slice)
1. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F). Separate the eggs and place the whites in a large bowl. Keep egg whites in the refrigerator to keep them cold until you are ready to use them.
2. Place the chocolate (broken into pieces) in a large bowl. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water (60C/140F). Then add the cream cheese and melt them together. Remove the bowl from the double boiler, add the egg yolks, and mix well.
3. In a large bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until firm peaks form. You should be able to turn the bowl upside down without the mixture falling out.
4. Add 1/3 of the egg whites into the cream cheese mixture and blend well with a spatula. Then add the rest of the egg whites a bit at a time and mix well.
5. Rub some oil/butter on parchment paper and use it to line the cake tin. Pour the batter into the tin and drop the tin lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter.
6. Place the cake pan on a baking sheet. Pour some hot water into the baking sheet. Bake at 170C (338F) for 15 minutes, 160C (320F) for 15 minutes, then stop the heat and bake with the remaining heat for 15 minutes.
7. When it is done, place the cake pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
8. Tuck in to your delicious cheesecake!
