Method

METHOD
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 160°C (150°c fan forced). Grease and line the base and sides of an 8-inch round springform cake tin. Wrap foil around the base and sides to prevent water of the bain-marie baking process from seeping through.
MIX
  • 2
    In a large mixing bowl, whip your egg whites with electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  • 3
    In a separate bowl, melt together white choc chips and coconut oil over a bain-marie or in the microwave in 30 second increments. Set aside to cool to room temperature but don't allow to set.
  • 4
    Place egg yolks, cream cheese, frosting mix, lemon zest, and vanilla in another large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until completely smooth and fluffy (about 4 mins). Then pour in your room temp choc mix and mix for another 3 minutes until combined. Gently fold in your whipped egg whites with the paddle attachment or with a hand held spatula and pour batter into your prepared tin.
BAKE
  • 5
    Create a bain-marie by placing your prepared tin of batter into a large baking dish and pour hot water in the baking dish until it reaches half-way up the cake tin.
  • 6
    Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown and the top feels set. After the 40 minutes, turn off the oven and let your cheesecake sit in the oven for another 10 minutes. Then transfer to the fridge to chill and set for at least 4-5 hours.
STORE
  • 7
    Keep covered in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
