Are you craving for a cheesy dessert? Of course with a fat free cheese. I found an easy ,mix and bake dessert in the blog Nami-Nami . I usually make souffle with just eggs ,milk and cream, fruits in a souffle was a neat idea. I prepared some caramelized peach sauce to add more fruity flavor to the dessert. I made no changes to the original recipe, just made it in a smaller portion. This dessert was Ramadan diet friendly ,meaning prepared in a lesser time with healthier ingredients.
1 cup fat free ricotta cheese
2 large Organic eggs
2 tablespoon semolina farina(Sooji Rava)
1 cup Plain yogurt or Sour Cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 Large Apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon Butter for topping
Sliced Almond and Pistachios for Garnish
Preheat Oven to 350F.
Combine cheese and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Stir well until combined. Mix in the semolina, yogurt or sour cream and sugar.
Wash,peel,decore and thinly slice the Apples and fold it in the cheese mixture.Transfer the mixture in to greased(with butter) baking dish, I used a corning ware dish about 7x7 inches in dimensions.
Sprinkle some sliced almonds all over the mixture and dot with butter. Bake for about 45 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing, about 2 hours.Garnish with chopped pistachios and Serve with any fruit sauce ,I made the Caramelized Peach sauce(recipe follows).
To make Caramelized Peach sauce you'll need
2 tablespoon sugar(I used Brown sugar)
2 Ripe peaches,wash,discard pit and chop(do not peel)
2 tablespoons water.
In medium saucepan add sugar and water.Cook over medium-high heat until sugar is completely dissolved about 1 minute.Reduce heat to medium low, and cook until sugar turns bubbly and dark, about 10 minutes.Stir in chopped peach cover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the peaches are soft, about 15 minutes.
Now puree the cooked peaches until smooth .Serve with the cheese souffle or with pancakes.
