Orange and lime cheesecake


  • bowl 1

  • 12 cl of orange juice
  • 225 g of cream cheese
  • 60 g of unsalted butter
  • 75 g orange marmalade
  • 85g cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) of baking powder
  • 35 g cornstarch
  • 6 egg yolks
  • juice of 1 lime

  • bowl 2 (bowl of a hand blender)

  • 6 egg whites
  • 125 g of powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Lightly oil a 20cm springform pan lined with baking paper.

  2. Prepare bowl 1. Pour the cream cheese and orange juice into a large bowl and place it over a pan of simmering water. Add the butter and stir for 5 minutes until the mixture is smooth. Leave to cool well, at least 15 minutes, then add the orange marmalade.

  3. Sift the flour, yeast and starch into a mixing bowl. Also sift it over the cream cheese mixture and mix well. Incorporate the egg yolks with the lime juice.

  4. Prepare bowl 2. Mix the egg whites at high speed then add the sugar, 1 tbsp. tablespoon at a time. Whisk until the mixture forms fairly stiff glossy peaks. Pour 1 large spoonful of whites into the bowl of cream cheese, mix, then incorporate the rest.

  5. Place the mixture in the springform pan and place it in a large baking dish. Fill the dish with very hot water, up to halfway.

  6. Bake for around 40 minutes, until the cheesecake is firm and golden.
