New York Cheese Cake Recipe

Ingredients:
24 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup extra-fine whole milk ricotta cheese (refine – put in a food processor for 1 minute)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups sugar substitute (See: Stevia Exchange Amounts)
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
3 egg yolks

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

You need to put a cake pan into 1″ of water to make this type of cake. It needs to sit in the middle of the oven. You thus need a cake pan and another pan (roasting pan, etc) where you can put 1″ of water in it and its big enough to hold the cake pan.

In the bowl, use a mixer to beat softened cream cheese, ricotta, sour cream and “sugar substitute” on low speed for about 1 minute until well blended.

Using a wire whisk, mix heavy cream, vanilla, lemon juice, eggs, and egg yolks until blended.

Turn the mixer on medium speed, and slowly pour the egg mixture into the cream cheese mixture. Beat just until blended. Do not over-whip.

Pour batter into the cake pan. Place pan into the heated “water bath”. Bake for 15 minutes.

Lower the oven temperature to 275 degrees F. Continue baking for 1 1/2 hours. It will be done with the top is light golden brown and cake is pulling away from the sides of the pan.

Turn the oven off when finished cooking and leave the cake in the oven to cool for 3 more hours. (This will allow cake to keep its height)

Then remove cake and refrigerate before serving.

Serve chilled.

Entire cake is 46 carbs. 8 servings – 4.5 carbs/serving.
