sunday morning cheesecake
it is no necessary to be professionals to bake the cheescake, but in this case the receipe comes from a professional - my aunt basia.
there is nothing to say, she has always been a number one in the matter of baking in the whole family.
what i did was preparing small portions in a tiny cake pans, ideal for a sunday morning breakfast for two in bed...
you will need:
- two eggs
- 300 g of ricotta cheese (or similar)
- 100 g of butter
- half cup of sugar
- lemon and vanilla aroma
- 1/2 spoon of baking powder
- rasins or pieces of fresh peach to add
- shortcrust pastry (better if home made) for the bottom
roll out the pastry in previously buttered small cake pans (preferably pottery), make small holes with a fork and put in the pre-heated oven for 10 minutes. leave aside to chill. work the butter with a wooden spoon or mixer. add yolks, sugar, ricotta, baking powder, aromas and rasins or peaces of peach.
put the mixture in to the pans and put in the oven (pre-heated to 200 C degrees) for 20 minutes.
the best way to eat it is in my opinion a sunday breakfast in bed (especially if you can share it :) with a cup of cappuccino. however is also lovely to taste it after lunch or, as my aunt basia does, at 11.30 am, with a cup of tea or a long coffee, as a second breakfast!
