My neighbors have been so nice lately, helped me out with a number of favours and had the best intentions in what they have been doing for me. So to say thanks, I baked a cake! They have children so I thought it was best to keep it simple.
I had some as well, it was delicious 🙂 and even though the sides were a little crumbly, thats okat, the topping hid any imperfections. Home baking isnt meant to be perfect anyway.
250g plain biscuits – I used coffee biscuits
150g butter, melted
250g cottege cheese
250g softened creamcheese
2tsp lemon rind
3/4c (165g) caster sugar
tsp vanilla bean essence
1c (240g) sour cream
1/4c (60ml) lemon juice
cream to serve
crush your biscuits into a fine crumb
preheat the oven to 160 degrees
melt your butter
line a springfoam cake tin and butter the sides
combine the butter and biscuit crumb
press the mix into the cake tin and up the sides
place into the fridge until set
make your filling;
push the cottege cheese through a siv and into a bowl. Add the cream cheese and the sugar and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add teh eggs and vailla one at a time and beat until combined, then add the sour cream, lemon juice and zest. pour the mix into the tin. Bake for 1.5hrs. Open the oven door slightly and allow to cool completely in the oven before placing into the fridge overnight.
