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