This week's Culinary SOS: Hot cheesecake from Mount Zion Hotel

September 25, 2011 |  6:30 am


This week's Culinary SOS comes from Nadine Steinberg in San Clemente:

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Israel to attend the wedding of one of his former students. We stayed at the beautiful Mount Zion hotel in Jerusalem, which served an incredible Israeli breakfast. In addition to a wide array of delicious salads, they offered a hot cheesecake dish. The hot cheesecake was amazing: light, soufflé-like, not overly sweet. A perfect breakfast dish! We're still dreaming about that dish and would love to have the recipe.

A crustless cheesecake, Mount Zion's version of this classic is rich, lightly tart and not too sweet, with a light hint of orange. The cake is delicious served either warm or cold.

Thanks, Nadine!  You can find the recipe here.
