Goat Cheese Cheesecake is YUM!!!

This recipe is past yummy: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/goat-cheese-cake-with-mixed-berries-51169420

That is all.

YIELD Makes 8 servings

INGREDIENTS

Unsalted butter (for pan)
3/4 cup sugar plus more for pan
12 ounces fresh soft goat cheese, room temperature
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 large eggs, separated
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 pints mixed berries (blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, and/or raspberries)
Special equipment: A 9"-diameter springform pan

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350°. Butter springform pan and dust with sugar, tapping out any excess.
Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat goat cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla, and 3/4 cup sugar in a large bowl until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg yolks two at a time, beating to blend and scraping down sides of bowl between additions. Reduce speed to low, add flour, and mix just until blended.
Using clean, dry beaters, beat egg whites in a medium bowl until soft peaks form. Fold 1/4 of egg whites into goat cheese mixture just until blended; fold in remaining egg whites just until blended. Scrape into prepared pan and tap pan to level batter.
Bake cheesecake until top is set but still jiggles slightly in the center, 30-35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool in pan.
Run a thin knife around sides of pan; unmold cake. Serve topped with berries.

It took me many years to try carrot cake.  I like carrots. I like cake.  The two just didn't seem to go together though.  Once I tried it... LOVED it.  Accepting goat cheese cheesecake... I don't know if I have it in me to go with that one.  lol

Six eggs. I don't think the goat cheese would bother me, but six eggs!  I like eggs.  But I don't like my desserts to taste eggy. That's why I don't like custard.  Too eggy.

And when I make my own bread putting I use only one egg.

It really tasted like cheesecake. But lighter and airier.
