Pieter’s Green Fig and Goats-milk Cheese tart
I promised to share my recipe with you.This is one of those desserts or tea time treats that doesn’t impress with looks. It is an awesome taste sensation though. Using Goats-milk cheese along with Green fig preserve and nuts, just bring an absolute divine taste sensation to the table.
If it is a problem to find Green fig preserve in stores, Woolies always have They are not that expensive eather.
Ingredients:
Pre heat oven to 160*C
Crust:
Use a 23cm Spring form pan, lined out with cooking spray
Crush a 1/2 Cup of Cashews with 200g Bakers short crust biscuits( Eat sum more) in a food processor, add 60g of melted butter to it and mix. Press firmly in pan and set aside
Cheesecake Mixture
2x 100g Smooth plain Goats-milk cheese
1 x 500g Jar of Green fig preserve
1/2 cup of juice from the preserve
4 eggs seperated
40g Butter
40g selfrasing flour
Lemon juice from 1/2 medium fresh lemon
60g castor sugar
250ml fresh Cream
Break up the cheese in pieces and add to your blender, add fig juice, egg yellow and melted butter. Blend till smooth. Add the selfrasing, blend and lastly blend in the lemon juice.
Beat egg whites with 60g of Castor till soft peaks form with hand mixer, use the same mixer and beat the cream till stiff. You cant whisk the cream and then the egg whites with the same mixer without cleaning them. Remember that on.
Add the cheese mixture in a large mixing bowl. Slice the whole figs in small pieces, chunky, not fine. Fold into cheese mixture. Fold the cream into the cheese mixture and lastly, lightly fold in the egg whites. Pour mixture in pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes at 160* C. I always turn the oven off, open the door and let the fan run for another 15 minutes, before taking it out. You don’t need to chill this, this cake is stunning slightly cooled.
