Ingredients :

125  gm  cream cheese,  at room temperature
120  gm  white chocolate,  chopped
3  egg  yolks  used large eggs, about 70 gm each
1/2  tbsp.  cake flour or plain flour
1/2  tbsp.  corn flour (starch)
1  tsp  vanilla extract
1  tbsp.  lemon juice
1  lemon zest
3  egg  whites
2  tbsp.  dried cranberries,  cut into smaller pieces

Instructions :

1.  Preheat oven to 170'C.  Line a 7-inch cake pan at the bottom and grease the sides with butter, set aside.

2.  Break white chocolate into pieces in a large stainless steel bowl and melt in a double boiler over hot water.  Stir chocolate to smooth.  Then add the cream cheese into it and stir till smooth with a hand whisk.

3.  Remove the bowl from double boiler.  Add egg yolks, mix well followed by vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest, mix well again with a hand whisk.  Sift in cake flour and corn flour, stir well to smooth.

4.  In another clean bowl, whisk egg whites with 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice with an electric mixer until firm peaks form.  Add 1/3 of meringue into the cream cheese batter and fold well with a rubber spatula.  Then add the rest of the meringue and fold well again.

5.  Pour cheese mixture into prepared pan.  Dust dried cranberry pieces with some flour and scatter on top of cheese batter.

6.  Steam-bake the cake at 170'C for 15 minutes.  Then lower the temperature to 160'C for 15 minutes and 130'C for another 10 minutes.

7.  Run a knife around rim of pan so that the cake will not get a waist line.  Leave cake to cool completely before removing from the cake pan.  Chill the cake before consuming (about 2-3 hours) and dust with powdered sugar (or snow powder) if you like...
