Quick and very easy to make, this crustless cheesecake is perfect for when you have a crowd to feed. It keeps well in the fridge for several days too so any leftovers can be enjoyed long after your guests have gone.

  • Ricotta cheese, reduced-fat, 1000 g
  • Lemon zest, 1 tablespoon(s), finely grated
  • Lemon juice, 2½ tablespoon(s)
  • Castor sugar, granulated, ½ cup(s), or powdered sweetener
  • Eggs, raw, 5 extra large egg(s)
  • Plain flour, white, ¼ cup(s)
  • Flaked almonds, ½ cup(s), optional
  • Blueberries, 300 g
  • Icing sugar, 1 tablespoon(s), optional, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Lightly grease, then flour a 24 cm springform cake tin. Line the base with baking paper. Place the ricotta, lemon zest and juice, sugar or sweetener and eggs in a food processor. Process the mixture until very smooth, stopping to scrape the mixture down with a flexible spatula as necessary. Add the flour, then pulse just until the flour is combined.
  3. Transfer the ricotta mixture to the prepared tin, smoothing the top so it is even. Sprinkle over the flaked almonds, if using, then bake for 50 minutes or until light golden and just set in the middle. Turn off the oven, then leave the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the door ajar.
  4. Serve the cheesecake in wedges, with blueberries scattered over and dusted with icing sugar (if using).
