The first is a simple sugar-free cheesecake recipe. As you’ll see, it’s so easy to prepare and the result is simply delicious. These amounts of ingredients are only for a small portion.

Ingredients for the dough

Ingredients for the cream

  • 300g (10 oz) cream cheese (choose light to reduce calories)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 sachet sweetener
  • Sugar-free jam to taste (red fruits give this recipe an incredible flavor)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Lemon juice
  • Oil or butter to line the tin

Instructions for sugar-free cheesecake

  • Starting with the dough: put the sweetener in a bowl and add one egg. Beat well until ingredients are combined and it starts to foam
  • Add the flour, continue beating. Beat well to aerate. This will give good texture.
  • Grease the tin with oil or butter and pour in the dough.
  • Bake in the oven at a low temperature until the dough is crisp and golden.
  • For the filling, beat the two remaining eggs with the rest of the sweetener (1/2 sachet)
  • Mix in the cream cheese, lemon juice and the lemon zest and continue beating until mixed well.
  • When ready, remove the base from the oven and pour the filling on top.
  • Return to the oven at 180ºC. The time it will take to bake depends on the oven. Keep checking its progress. It should be ready after 15 to 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and leave it to cool in the tin. If you try to remove it from the mold while still hot, it will break. Wait till it’s set to do this.
  • Heat a couple of tablespoons of jam until it becomes more liquidy, and pour over the top of the cheesecake before serving.
