Recipe: Dutch Style Lemon Cheese Cake

Wow it’s been a while since I posted any recipes! It’s time I shared some of the goodness again. I made this cheese cake over the weekend for a friend’s birthday and it’s super easy to make. It literally takes about 30 minutes and it’s delish! Here’s how to do it!


– 2 lemons

– 200 grams sugar

– 10 leaves of white gelatine

– 25 grams butter

– 200 grams Bastogne cookies (or graham crackers)

– 500 grams lean or 0% fat cottage cheese

– 250 ml whipped cream


– Soak the gelatine in cold water

– Clean the lemons and grate the zest & squeeze out the juice

– Add water until you have 100 ml of juice/water/zest mixture

– Put in a small sauce pan and cook for 2 minutes

– Squeeze the water from the gelatine and add it to the juice in your pan

– Add the sugar and stir well until completely dissolved

– Let cool

– Melt the butter and crumble the cookies in a food processor

– Add the butter to the cookies

– Grease a spring form and press the cookie mixture into the form with a spoon

– Beat the cream until thick and with a spatula incorporate the cottage cheese & juice/zest/sugar/gelatine mixture.

– Pour into the form and smoothen

– Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
