Goat Cheese Cake with Mixed Berries

Goat Cheese Cake with Mixed Berries

This tangy, crustless cheesecake feels light and airy thanks to the addition of beaten egg whites.

Ingredients

  • Unsalted butter (for pan)
  • 3/4 cup sugar plus more for pan
  • 12 ounces fresh soft goat cheese, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 pints mixed berries (blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, and/or raspberries)

Special Equipment

  • A 9-inch-diameter springform pan

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Butter springform pan and dust with sugar, tapping out any excess.

  • Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat goat cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla, and 3/4 cup sugar in a large bowl until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg yolks two at a time, beating to blend and scraping down sides of bowl between additions. Reduce speed to low, add flour, and mix just until blended.

  • Using clean, dry beaters, beat egg whites in a medium bowl until soft peaks form. Fold 1/4 of egg whites into goat cheese mixture just until blended; fold in remaining egg whites just until blended. Scrape into prepared pan and tap pan to level batter.

  • Bake cheesecake until top is set but still jiggles slightly in the center, 30–35 min-utes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool in pan.

  • Run a thin knife around sides of pan; unmold cake. Serve topped with berries.

The lightness of it with the freshness of the lemon and goat cheese makes for a perfect texture without the heaviness of traditional cheesecake. Definitely include fruit/berries for serving - it's the perfect cap to a wonderful cake!AnonymousOak Park, Illinois, USA08/03/20The flour here is unnecessary. We made it with the flour and it was not creamy like a cheesecake at all. Without the flour and it was much nicer. I also increased the amount of the goat cheese to 500gr and added one more egg.AnonymousCzech Republic01/30/19
