Apricot Swirl Cheescake
This recipe takes a certain amount of focus. And two or three mixing bowls. And some time. But it’s worth the effort because it’s one of the best I’ve ever made. Rich and dense, with a tart-sweet marbling of puréed fresh apricots – a melting mouthful. Makes 1 9-inch cake.
1/3 cup flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
2 large eggs, separated
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Zest of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons melted, unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Ingredients for Purée:
3-5 fresh apricots: enough to make 3/4 cup puréed.
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1-2 tablespoons sugar

Ingredients for Cheese Filling:
3 cups full-fat cream cheese at room temperature. If using American cream cheese, use three 8-oz. packages. Israelis: I used Ski.
1/4 cup cornstarch
1-1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2/3 cup whipping cream

Helpful Hints
If you use a springform pan and grease it well with butter, you will have a smooth-edged cake. I was chicken about its being hard to remove so I placed baking paper in a pan with a removable bottom and got bumpy edges all around.

Leftovers stay delicious if wrapped well and kept cold, for 4 days.
