Dietitian's tipThis recipe is traditionally very high in fat. As this recipe does not contain butter but uses cooking oil it has a much lower saturated fat and calorie count, making it an ideal food choice.
Suitable to be frozen for 2-3 weeks.
Baked Cheesecake with Blueberry SauceMakes 12 servings
Base15 oatmeal cookies sugar free (Mothers®)
1 tablespoon no-fat milk
Filling1 x 16oz tub low-fat cottage cheese 2% milk fat
1 x 4oz ? less fat Philadelphia cream cheese
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup sugar
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
Syrup1 x 15oz can blueberries in light syrup
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C) fan forced.
To make base In a food processor crumble cookies, add milk and blend together. Coat a spring-based cake pan (8") with cooking spray and press base mix onto base of pan using the palm of your hand. Refrigerate while making the filling.
To make filling Clean food processor bowl and add cottage cheese, blend until very smooth, add cream cheese and blend. Finely chop rind then add to processor with lemon juice and extract, blend ingredients. Slowly add in sugar until dissolved. Add egg whites and egg and combine with mixture, add flour. Once combined pour mixture over cookie base. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven then release the spring of cake pan to loosen cheesecake away from the edge. This may help stop the filling from cracking as it cools.
To make syrup Place both ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to boil, stirring continuously. Leave to cool. Pour equal amounts of sauce over each serving.
VariationOmit blueberry sauce for a plain cheesecake or replace canned blueberries with any canned fruit of your choice.
Not suitable to be frozen.
