500g of white cheese

2 eggs

100g of sugar

65g flour

100g of red fruits

zest of 1 lemon

Cake preparation


Preheat the oven to 175 ° C, if possible by convection (by rotating heat).

Butter and line a small mold (ideally 18 cm) with baking paper.

Whisk the cream cheese with grated lemon zest, half the sugar, egg yolks and the sifted flour.

Whip the egg whites until stiff and when they just start to foam, add the rest of the sugar in several batches.

Let the mixer run until you get a shiny and supple meringue.

Gently fold it into the cottage cheese mixture.

Add the red fruits, mix gently and pour into the mold .

Put the cake in the oven for 45 minutes of baking . At the end of the cooking time, turn off the oven and open the door a crack for 30 minutes before removing the cake and delicately unmolding it.
