Double Cheese Cheesecake


675g ricotta cheese
455g cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
6 eggs
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C.) Wrap the outside bottom of a 10 inch springform pan with foil to prevent water seeping in while baking.

2 Cream together ricotta cheese, cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Add flour one tablespoon at a time, mixing well. Stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Pour mixture into a 10 inch springform pan.

3 Place cheesecake in a large rectangular pan filled with 2 inches of hot water. Carefully put into preheated oven without spilling water. Bake for 90 minutes.

4 After 90 minutes turn oven off, but leave the cake in the oven for another 60 minutes (do not open door).

5 Cool on counter for 60 minutes and then refrigerate. Serve when thoroughly chilled. (Top with fruit, chocolate or caramel!)
