my cheesecake experiment

as it was shavuot last week i improvised a cheesecake only using yogurt, a lemon and four eggs for the filling and a very simple base.

the base 
(if you skip the honey you can use this base for quiche as well):
  • 100g flour
  • 75g oat flakes
  • 75g butter
  • 1 tbsp apple vinegar
  • 3 tbsp water
  • some honey

for the filling:
  • 4 cups of yogurt (if you have cream cheese use half half, that might taste better)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 lemon (best if it is organic as you are going to use the skin too)

what t o do:
  1. mix all the ingredients for the base into a homogeneous dough, cover your baking dish with some butter and spread your dough until it covers the base and the walls of your baking dish. now it goes into the oven for about 7 min.
  2. cut the lemon in quarters and remove the stones (?). now put them in a mixer and mix until you have a smooth something. mix the lemon with the the yogurt and eggs and fill into your baking dish.
  3. bake for over an hour at 140°C/300°F
  4. if you want you can cover the cake with some sugar when it starts to get solid.
  5. make sure to put it in the fridge to get cool (not in the freezer, you wont be able to cut it), and enjoy!!

It looks really nice! I've never made my own cheesecake. Maybe I should be brave enough to give it a try.
