  • Add the flour paste and whisk until well combined.
  • Beat the 3 egg whites to soft peaks. Add the lemon juice and sugar, continue beating until the egg whites form glossy, stiff peaks. Carefully fold the meringue into the yolk mixture.
  • Pour the batter in the prepared baking tin and bake for 1 hour, remove from the oven and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the tin, put on a wire rack and leave to cool.

Make the raspberry coulis:

  • Tip the the raspberries, sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat until the raspberries start to melt and the resulting liquid starts boiling.
  • Stir in the lemon juice and mash the raspberries with a wooden spoon to a purée.
  • Pass the pureed raspberries through a sieve using the wooden spoon and collect the coulis in a bowl below.

Assemble the cake:

  • Drizzle the raspberry coulis over the cheesecake, top with the raspberries and garnish with a few sprigs of mint.
