Cool

By using almond "flour", will it absorb moisture in the cake while baking ? Or does it absorb only during mixing ???

I am not sure it will work at all, RD, don't bank on it ; its just a suggestion.

I am not a food scientist or a chef or a trained cook. All I can tell you is, I make what seems to be a very wet batter with my almond cakes and it comes out a cake! It is the perfect "moistness" for me in the recipes I use it in.

I really strongly suggest that to evaluate ther properties of it you try making the recipe I PMed you both as it is written and with flour instead. That will give a clear indication of how it works and if you want to incorperate it into your cheesecake.

You are a great experimenter so experiment!

Besides which its a nice cake and will make a good change and if you like cheesecake I think you'll like this. Just try it!

RD you are very sweet, but it can't be a family favourite unless you make it and like it first.

ok, I admit, I don't know what the heck I'm doing. The only thing I know how to do is observe.

What I just did:

In a bowl I mixed at high speed
  1. 2 egg yolks + 4 egg whites
  2. 1 tbsp powdered buttermilk
  3. 2 cups sugar
It bulked up with air to twice its volume. To this I will now mix in 4 cream cheese bars. Done !

Bake 15 min @ 350, 45 min @ 300 and 1 hr @ 250 for a total of 2 hours. Should be enough.

I'm not happy with all the air but too late for that.

I'll tell you what I told you in another thread.
Send your cheesecakes to me and I'll tell you if they're good.
