READY IN: 6hrs




  • FRESH LEMON CURD: In a double boiler, over medium heat, whisk all the ingredients together. Cook the sauce until thick, about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and cool. Makes about 1 ½ cups of Lemon Curd.
  • CAKE: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter and graham cracker crumbs together. Press the crust into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • In an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Beat in 1 cup sour cream, Goats cheese, and sugar until the mixture is smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla and lime juice and continue to beat until the batter is full incorporated and smooth. Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Then place the pan into a waterbath. (a waterbath is a pan larger than the cake pan, filled with water half the height of the cake pan).
  • Bake for 1.5 hours, or until the center reaches 147F with an instant read digital thermometer. Remove the cake pan from the larger pan and set aside to cool on a rack.
  • Run a knife between the cake and the rim of the pan. Do not release the spring. Refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours.
  • SAUCE: In a small bowl, whisk together the 1/2 cup sour cream and Grand Marnier. Spread over the top of the cake. Serve the cake with the lemon curd and some fresh raspberries.
