# Glutenfree Cheesecake Inspired by Victor Benes Bakery

I am  infatuated by the Cheesecake from Victor Benes.  I had to figure out how to make it myself and to be gluten free.  So Sunday, I went to Victor Benes Bakery and bought a slice and looked at it carefully. I saw there was a lemon or Orange Curd or Jelly. Then I thought to myself that's marmalade.  So Quickly figured out How to Make and assemble together.

So here is my inspiration,

and here is my creation!

Now here's how you make this fabulous and easy dessert.

Cheesecake Ingredients:
1 Cup of  Powdered Sugar
1 Cup of Gluten Free All Purpose flour
1 Stick of butter (1/2 Cup) Cubed
2 Tablespoons of Marmalade
5 eggs Separated
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
(2) 8 oz Bricks of Cream Cheese
3 Tablespoons  Powder Sugar for Garnish

1 Large Loaf Pan
Parchment Paper
Cooking Spray
13 x 9 Pan to place loaf Pan in water bath
1 inch of water
Saran Wrap
Stand Mixer

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a bowl take 1st 3 Ingredients Butter, Powder Sugar and Gluten Free Flour and mix together until a crumbly texture forms.

Take Parchment and cut 2 Strips to fit Loaf Pan both diagonal and Horizonally then Spray with cooking spray. Next poor crumbly mixture into loaf pan press down until firm. place in oven for 16 to 18 minutes until golden and bubbly.

While Crust is baking start filling by seperating eggs in to seperate bowls.

Whip Whites until Stif peaks form.

Next in seperate bowl add 1/2 cup granulated sugar to yolks and

beat until a buttery yellow texture forms

Next add Cream cheese and bead until semi creamy.

Buy now you will need to pull out the crust out of the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes then spread Marmalade.

Reduce oven heat to 300  degrees and place on Convection setting.

Go Back to your cream cheese mixture and  fold in the egg whites into the cream cheese mixture a 1/3 at a time.

When all eggs are folded in gently scoop cream cheese mixture into loaf pan.

Next add 1 inch of water into your 13 x 9 pan then place loaf pan in and place in oven for a hour.
Let Cool then Wrap container in Saran Wrap and place in refrigerator over night.

Next Day pull out of pan and place on plate and garnish with powdered sugar.

Enjoy and See you soon.
