Cranberry-Orange Goat Cheese Pound Cakesouffle

 
1 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 oz. fresh chévre, at room temperature
1/2 cup unsalted butter, slightly soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. grated lemon zest
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup orange liqueur or orange juice

Place cranberries in a small bowl. Cover with orange liqueur or juice. Let soak for 1 hour or longer.

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Generously grease a loaf pan (8 x 5 x 3) with butter or nonstick spray. Coat with flour.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. With an electric mixer beat the goat cheese and butter until very pale. Add the sugar and beat until slightly fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl well. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until blended before adding the next. Add the flour mixture, vanilla and lemon zest, and mix until almost incorporated.

Drain the cranberries and gently fold them into the batter using a rubber spatula.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center, 65 to 75 minutes. Let the cake cool for about 15 minutes and then invert the pan and lightly tap it to release the cake. Cool completely on a rack before serving.

Lemon Tart

 
8 ounces chévre
8 ounces Amazing Acres Fromagina
4 large eggs
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 9-inch pre-baked deep fluted tart shell
Powdered sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the chévre, fromagina, eggs, 2/3 cup sugar and lemon juice in a blender. Finely mince the lemon zest with 2 tablespoon of sugar. Add the lemon-sugar mixture to the chévre mixture and combine. When smooth, pour into the tart shell and place on a cookie sheet and bake about 45 minutes or until puffy and set in the center. Toward the end of the bake time, the top of the tart may crack but will settle back down into place after cooling.

Cool on a wire rack. Dust with powdered sugar and serve at room temperature.
