CHEESECAKE SQUARES WITH RASPBERRY JAM SWIRL (GRAIN FREE, SCD DIET) a cheesecake square with a raspberry jam swirl make for a rich and decadent dessert.

I love cheesecake. I was so excited when I found out I could make cheesecake that was still grain free and SCD compliant and actually tasted like cheesecake :O One of the many amazements of SCD life. I’ve tried a few different recipes scattered across the interwebs, and I’ve also did my own after tricking my dad into eating an SCD legal cheesecake for his birthday. Yup. While that was a plain ol’ regular cheesecake, in a springform pan and all, I decided to put a twist on that recipe and make them in a super-easy-to-do square baking dish. And here we are.

Surprisingly, given my undying love for cheesecake when I was child, this is my first “proper” cheesecake recipe and it’s not even a proper cheesecake recipe, technically speaking, it’s not your traditional plain/circular/cheesecake. But it is delicious and I wanted a little bit of something else to look at other than an all-white square, hence the swirl.

Don’t be intimidated by this cheesecake either, it’s pretty easy as you’re just throwing everything in a food processor and pouring it on to your prepared crust. The crust is also quickly prepared, using one bowl only, and baking for ten minutes beforehand. 

As far as the recipe goes, you do need dry curd cottage cheese to fully evoke the true cheesecake quality — at least in my experience– so while you could sub in more thick yogurt (if you’re on the SCD diet, you’ll need to drip your yogurt for 24 hours at least), but I would not sub in more than a 1/2 cup more — meaning, you can also use 1 cup of dripped yogurt, and 1 + 1/2 cups of dry curd cottage cheese total). Finally jam! Jam is also a must (I mean not really, you could hypothetically also make these jam-less and they will simply be vanilla cheesecake squares!)- but it doesn’t need to be raspberry jam. Use whatever jam you like, or have on hand.
