"Creamy, with a hint of an orange zest, simply delightful dessert. I like my cheesecake dusted with a powder sugar, but it is as good as with a dark-chocolate glaze!"

Serves 8-10
750g white cheese
1 cup caster sugar
8 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
zest of 1 orange
3 tablespoons potato or sweet corn starch (flour)

Position the baking shelf in the middle of the oven. Grease the inside of the baking tray (26cm diameter) with butter (you can also use baking paper instead of the butter). Preheat the oven to 200C (conventional oven).

For the cheesecake mixture, beat the cheese, egg yolks, vanilla, flour and orange zest with a hand mixer until creamy.

In a separate large bowl whisk the egg whites with an electric beater. Gradually add sugar (a couple of tablespoons at a time) and whisk well between each spoon addition. Egg whites are ready when stiff and glossy     and stand up in peaks. Gently mix the whisked egg whites with the cheese mixture adding the egg whites gradually to the cheese. Spoon the mixture onto the baking tray and bake for about 45-50min. When ready, turn the temperature off and leave the cheesecake in the oven for about 30min (oven's door closed). Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it rest in a room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
