Paleo Cheesecake

paleo-cheesecake

This is perfect for all cheesecake fans…. The texture is rich and creamy and, curiously, tastes better the longer you leave it – although that wasn’t long in our case!

You Will Need:-

For the Base:

1 + 1/2 cups of ground almonds

ground cinnamon

3 tblspoons melted butter

For the Filling:

4 packs of full fat cream cheese ( 1 lb)

4 eggs

1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract

1.5 teaspoons of lemon juice

1/4 cup of sour cream

1/4 cup of agave nectar (optional)

For decoration

Strawberries and fresh cream

Method:

1) Mix all the base ingredients together push into a pie dish and bake for 8-10 mins at 180 degrees C

2)Mix all the other ingredients together adding one in at a time.  If it looks lumpy, don’t panic!  Keep mixing for an extra minute and all lump issues will resolve.  Pour mixture onto base in pie dish.

3) Sit in a water bath (bain-marie)* and cook for about an hour (at 180 degrees C) (er …..the cheesecake not you)!

(* water bath: simply sit your cheesecake in a larger dish and fill the larger dish with water half way up the sides – don’t allow the water to penetrate the cheesecake at any time)

4) When cooked decorate and eat!
