bron's Low Calorie Cheescake
« on: August 03, 2009, 03:25:19 am »
I have made some adjustments based on bron's recommendations for a low calorie alternative from these links:

Low Calorie Baked Cheesecake:


serves 8
Ingredients:
Biscuit base
125g Wholemeal digestive biscuits with no sugar
40g butter

Cheese filling
2 eggs
80g sugar
80g fructose
200g skim milk
500g low-fat cream cheese or similar
juice and peel from 1 lemon
3 Tablespoons of corn flour
Diet strawberry jam mixed with jelly to decorate


Preparation:
Firstly, make the base.  Add biscuits to THX and chop 5 seconds, speed 5, then add butter 10 seconds speed 5. Press into a loose bottom greased cake tin with a metal spoon. Preheat oven 200º.

Blitz the lemon peel. Keep aside.

Then place butterfly in THX and add eggs and sugar and fructose. Program 5 mins, Temp 37º, speed 3. Then program further 5 mins, speed 3 (no heat). Add milk, cheese, lemon juice, lemon peel, and corn flour and mix 30 seconds speed 3. Pour mixture over the biscuit base.


Place in the centre of oven for 40 mins.    The strawberry jam/jelly is spooned over the top whilst cooling.

DO NOT remove from tin until well chilled and set. Best to make the day before!


One further tip.... not too sure why, but my tin always leaks a bit with this recipe, and not with any other cake or sponge, so I always place some foil on the bottom of the oven, to stop the butter dripping onto the oven and smoking the kitchen out.
Could possibly be just my tin...but maybe its the biscuit base  :-\It just leaks a little ::)


bron -let us know what I have done wrong and I will amend it.



Wonder if it may pay to cook the cornflour with the skim milk, sugar and eggs for a little time at 80 degrees - say 5 minutes before adding the cheese and lemon juice/zest?

Oh well done Thermomixer - I haven't got the energy at the moment except to push the print button ;) ;) ;)  Have a nice tea in mind to convert tonight though so will have to find the energy from somewhere.

Change the sugar to half (I used fructose and halved again!)
No raisins.
And strawberry jam heated up with some low fat jelly, wait for it to cool (about half an hour) and then pour over cake and chill to set! Will check exact amounts when I get home this pm! :-*
