First, you have to beat the cream cheese and butter till they’re smooth. Next, add the sour cream, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, zest, and vanilla extract and mix. Add the eggs one by one as you’re beating, then pour the mixture into a buttered cake mould covered in foil. Bake it for two hours and 15 minutes at 148°C. Let the cake cool in the oven for two to three hours before putting it into the fridge. Leave it for the night and you’re ready to serve!

Covered in chocolate? Why not?

  • 1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 453g cream cheese

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 226g dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil

Mix the cookie crumbs and butter to form the crust. Press it firmly into the pan to make sure they don’t fall apart when you take them out. Mix the cream cheese till smooth, then add in sugar, salt, cornstarch, eggs, and vanilla. Beat all the ingredients till they’re smooth and pour the mixture into the crust. Bake it at 162°C for 30 minutes, and let it cool in the oven for another 20 minutes. Transfer it to the freezer and leave it there for at least two hours. While waiting for it to freeze, you can melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil. Slice the cake into cubes and dip them into the melted chocolate, then let it set. You can serve after the chocolate has set!
