Treat yourself with this creamy cake… while staying in shape!
Ingredients for 8 persons
- 160 g of tea biscuits
- 60 g of butter
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla aroma
- 1 kg of plain yoghurt (low fat)
- 2 tablespoons of corn starch or corn flour
- A pinch of salt
- 6 eggs
- 120 g of fine sugar
Preheat the oven to 170 °C / 350 °F
Crush the biscuits and crumble them.
Melt the butter in the microwave.
Add the butter on the biscuit crumbs along with a teaspoon of vanilla aroma. Mix all until moistening all the dough.
Spread the dough in the bottom of a mould with high edge. Stuff the dough properly by crushing with the palm of your hand. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, mix eggs, sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla aroma. Then add the yoghurt and mix. To finish, add a pinch of salt and pour the corn starch. Mix all the ingredients until a homogeneous and smooth mixture is obtained.
Put the mixture into the mould on the biscuit dough.
Put in the hot oven and cook for 1 hour at 170 ° C / 350 ° F.
If you use an oven with gas rails or electric heaters… Do not put your cake in direct contact with flames or hot resistance! To prevent the base of your cake from baking too quickly and burning, put an empty baking sheet between your cake and the flames / hot resistance. The diffusion of heat will be more homogeneous in your oven.
After 1 hour of cooking, turn off the oven. Open the oven door and wait 10 minutes before removing the cheesecake from the oven.
After cooling, cover the mould with a plastic wrap and put the cheesecake in the fridge for at least 4 hours before eating. The longer the rest period is, the better the cheesecake. A whole night is the ideal!
Serve plain or with a fruit coulis.
Why is my recipe a « light version »?
The classic version of cheesecake is a real « calorie bomb » with more than 500 kcal, 45 g of fat and at least 50 g of sugar for an average portion.
My recipe is half as much caloric and contains only 10 g of fat per serving. This recipe is also reduced in sugar, but there is still 20 g per serving! Avoid adding on top jam, caramel or other sweetened sauce. Why not eat this cheesecake with a puree of fresh fruit…? It will be one more fruit portion for your daily intake!
