Ricotta Cheesecake with Marsala Soaked Raisins (Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall)

June 29, 2012

Serves six.

100g raisins
4 tbsp marsala
Butter, for greasing
3 tbsp plain flour, plus extra for dusting
250g ricotta
2 tbsp creme fraiche
2 large eggs, separated
125g caster sugar
Grated zest of 1 lemon

Soak the raisins in the marsala for a few hours (overnight, if at all possible) until plump. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Butter a 25cm loose-based tart tin, dust the inside with flour and shake out the excess.

Beat the ricotta until smooth, then beat in the creme fraiche. Beat in the egg yolks. Combine the flour and 75g of the sugar, and beat into the mix along with a good grating of nutmeg and the lemon zest. Use a whisk to get rid of any lumps. Finally, stir in the raisins, along with any marsala left in the bowl.

Beat the egg whites until they hold soft peaks. Keep beating, gradually adding the remaining sugar, until you have a thick, glossy meringue that stays in the bowl if you hold it upside down. Stir a heaped tablespoonful of the meringue into the cheese mixture to loosen it, then lightly fold in the rest, keeping as much air in the mix as you can. Pour into the prepared tin and give it a gentle shake to level the surface. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until golden and set. Leave to cool to room temperature (it will sink, but don’t worry). Remove the sides of the tin and serve in generous slices, perhaps with a little glass of marsala to sip alongside.
