| RECIPE METHOD
TO MAKE CHEESECAKE:
Pour the cottage cheese into a sieve set over a pot and let it drain
overnight in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap, to remove
any excess moisture.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a blender, mix the drained
cottage cheese with the cream until smooth. In a medium bowl, whisk
together the eggs and sugar until slightly thickened. Stir the cheese
mixture into the egg mixture.
Pour the cheesecake mixture into a glass loaf pan, about 8 x 4
x 2 inches. Place the loaf pan in a larger pan and pour hot water
into the outside pan until the water comes halfway up the outside
of the inside pan. Bake for 1 3/4 to 2 hours, or until the cheesecake
is lightly browned on top and set. Turn the oven off and cool the
cheesecake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Refrigerate for 2 to
3 hours before serving.
TO MAKE SAUCE:
Pour the orange juice and honey into a small saucepan. Bring to
a simmer and boil until thickened, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
WHEN READY TO SERVE:
Turn the cake out onto a plate or cutting board. Cut the cake into
slices and serve with a drizzle of the orange honey sauce on top.
