Cake Topping made with Goat Cheese??

nja Jan 5, 2007 03:41 PM

Hi Hounds,

I'm making the ol' Nigella Clementine Cake today--but with Meyer Lemons--and was thinking about what to serve it with. I usually have a bit of whipped cream to dollop on the cut slices. But I'm in the mood to experiment so I was thinking of making some kind of topping made with goat cheese, since I've got a bunch I need to use and I love the combination of lemon with goat cheese flavors. I think I'd prefer to stick with something to dollop on when serving (like a whipped cream or sweetened mascarpone), instead of a frosting to cover the whole thing.

Any recipes or ideas on how to approach this? My biggest worry is getting the goat cheese to combine well with everything else. I find that it doesn't seem to melt or dissolve into things very easily.

    What a great idea!
    I find that soft goat cheese is much like cream cheese in that you can beat it till it's nice and smooth. How about adding a bit of honey and serving a dollop on the top/side.
    Or I wonder if you could fold whipped cream into the beaten-till-smooth goat cheese?
    Let us know what you decide and how it turns out.
