/ 60g Flour
follow instruction on packaging
or sweetener of choice
Gelatin as much as indicated on its instruction for ¼cup / 50ml water
/ 400g Cottage cheese
or sweetener of choice
/ 120g Chocolate
/ 30g Butter
Ø6.5" / Ø16.5cm Baking form
Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
Line a round baking tray by using baking sheets or cover it with some butter and flour.
Separate egg whites from the yolks.
Put egg whites in a medium size mixing bowl ready to beat them. Leave yolks in a cup for later.
Beat the egg whites on high speed until hard peaks form. At this stage, the tips of the egg whites will curl when the beaters are lifted. Peaks have to be stiff.
Add yolks one by one into the egg whites too.
Add sweetener of choice.
Measure flour. Put the unsweetened cocoa powder and the baking powder into the same measuring bowl. Mix dry ingredients well.
Mix dry ingredients into the egg until evenly combined.
Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking tray and put it into the 350°F / 180°C preheated oven for about 25 minutes.
Take it out when baked and place it in a cooling rack to cool down.
Dissolve gelatin in ¼cup / 50ml hot water (122°F / 50°C). Keep stirring it until completely dissolved. Don't let it set but cool it down to room temperature. It sets at 15°C/60°F
Put cottage cheese, honey, vanilla extract and lemon zest into a medium size mixing bowl and mix them evenly.
Pour the cooled gelatin into the cottage cheese.
Whip the cream until hard.
Fold the whipped cream into the cottage cheese carefully.
Cut the top of the cake to get a flat surface so it won't cause any difficulty to spread the cottage cheese on top.
Place the cake base back into the cake tin and spread the cottage cheese on top.
Put the cake in the fridge for 3-4 hours before taking it out of the tin.
Melt chocolate with the butter.
Pour the chocolate on top of the cake.
Spread it evenly.
Put it back to the fridge for another hour before cutting it up.
