Baked goat’s curd cheesecake

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 10 people

  • 1 kg goat’s curd
  • 2 lemons, zest grated and juiced
  • 7 large (70gm each) eggs
  • 250 gm caster sugar
  • 1 bottle Marc de Gewürztraminer d’Alsace (see note)
01   Preheat oven to 180C. Place the goat’s curd in a large mixing bowl, add the lemon juice and zest and whisk together with a balloon whisk until light and fluffy. The goat’s curd has a tendency to get stuck in the whisk but don’t be tempted to use an electric mixer as it will overwork the curd.
02   Whisk together the eggs and sugar for 1 minute, then add them, little by little, to the goat’s curd mixture, whisking constantly. Pour the mixture into a 25cm spring-form cake tin lined with baking paper and place on a baking tray. Bake for about 1 hour or until golden brown. It will still have a good wobble when it comes out, but don’t worry, it will set as it cools. To serve, cut the cheesecake into slices and pour 1-2 tbsp of Marc over each one.

Note Marc de Gewürztraminer d'Alsace is an eau de vie and is available from specialist liquor stores.
