  • 250gm cream cheese
  • 50g Ballantyne Rolled Cultured Style Unsalted Butter
  • 100ml milk
  • 60gm 00 flour
  • 20gm corn flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 6 egg whites
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • 140gm caster sugar


  • Preheat fan forced oven to 130C/conventional oven 160C. Lightly grease an 8-inch spring form pan and lin the base with baking paper.
  • In a medium saucepan, bring an inch of water up to a simmer and place a heatproof bowl on top to cover. Add the cream cheese, butter and milk. Stir continuously until well combined and the butter and cheese has melted. Set aside and allow to cool.
  • Once cream cheese mixture has cooled add in flour, cornflour, salt, lime juice and egg yolks and gently whisk to combine, ensuring there are no small lumps remaining.
  • In a stand mixer add the egg whites and cream of tartar and lightly beat until foamy, approximately 3-4 minutes. Pour in sugar and beat until soft peaks form.
  • Transfer 1/3 of egg white mixture into cream cheese and gently fold through. Repeat with another 1/3. Finally, Pour the cream cheese mixture into the remaining 1/3 of meringue and very gently fold through to combine.
  • Transfer to prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Allow the cake to rest in the oven with the door open to avoid a sudden change in temperature. Allow to cool.
