Granadilla Cheesecake

I’ve made this Granadilla Cheesecake 3 times and each time it gets the thumbs up. Its easy to make but pricey. The 3 tubs of cottage cheese will cost in the region of R70.00 for a good quality cheese. It’s worth it though because this cheesecake is just delish. Be care to not over mix the egg and sugar as this will cause the cake to crack in the baking process. Not too serious though because the cracks can easily be covered by cream or whatever topping you choose to make.
You will need:
For the crust:
125ml melted butter
1 packet Tennis biscuits
Filling:
4 extra large eggs
250ml fine sugar
60ml lemon juice
3 x 250g tubs cottage cheese
250ml cream
125ml cake flour
Topping:
2 small tins Granadilla pulp
100ml castor sugar
Gelatine to thicken (follow instructions on packet)
Method:
Melt the butter and combine with the Tennis biscuits. Press into a greased 23cm round loose-bottomed cake tin. Whisk the eggs and sugar for about 10 minutes or until pale yellow. Add the lemon juice while beating. Stir in the cottage cheese, cream and flour. Turn into the cake tin and bake for 10 minutes at 180 degrees. Turn the oven down to 140 degrees and bake for a further hour or until firm. Turn oven off and allow cake to cool in the oven or overnight in the oven. For the topping you can be creative and do whatever you feel. I’ve chosen Granadilla which is mixed with the sugar and Gelatine until firm. To quicken the process place the bowl of granadilla mix into a larger bowl of warm water. Once thoroughly mixed through pour over cooled cake and place into the fridge to set. Serve with full cream, sour cream or just plain as is.
