    About this recipe: This tastes a little bit like Italian cheesecake. If you're dieting, you don't necessarily need to avoid dessert completely...here's a light and tasty lemon cake made with less sugar than most cakes.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 3 eggs
    • 65g caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 500g cottage cheese, drained
    • 80g plain flour
    • 1 lemon
    • 1 tablespoon candied lemon peel, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 240 C / Gas 9.
    2. Add the eggs, sugar and vanilla to a bowl. Whisk until white and fluffy.
    3. Add the chesse and flour to the bowl; mix well. Add the candied peel, lemon juice, salt and ginger; mix again.
    4. Transfer to a silicon mould (you don't need to grease the mould) or a lined cake tin. Bake for 30 minutes.
    5. Completely cool - it's even better you can refrigerate for a few hours.

    I used mixed peel and philladelphia light instead of cottage cheese. I found it to be quite stodgy but the hubby and kids liked it - 07 Jun 2016
