A very nice cheesecake with a traditional baked texture. It would be good to have a calorie count with the recipe. I used lime juice rather than lemon juice for a bit more zing. - 12 Jun 2013
very good. I omitted the milk as advised on the US version for Oma's and left out the salt and vanilla. Cannot understand why vanilla and lemon. I am diabetic and have not yet worked out the mysteries of sugar substitutes so used 1 tblsp of sugar as I imagine I would need some sugar to counteract the souring of the cheese and lemon. Whisked the mixture in a bowl and just sprinkled some biscuit crumbs on the base to add a bit of crunch and still keep the carbs down. I have since found a recipe for low carb amaretti biscuits so i might use those in future and flavour with coffee or chocolate. Served with raspberries and extra thick cream. Definitely did not need more sugar. Thank you. Will certainly make again but if we have guests it would only be a side serving to a main feature of something like fresh berries and cream. - 01 Jan 2017
I made this and couldn't even tell it was cottage cheese. I used the lowfat kind, didn't put the milk in and used 1/3 cup honey in place of the sugar. It was amazing. We ate the whole thing and didn't feel guilty about it. Next time I'll try doubling the recipe for an even thicker cake. - 23 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
