Crustless Cheesecake with Marsala Raisins

And for today a sweet recipe for a delicious and almost light cheesecake. It is a crustless version of a cheesecake. The filling is simply made with cream cheese, eggs and sugar. To perfume and flavor the cake (and give it an Italian touch) I added the raisins soaked in Marsala.

The Marsala gives the cake a depth of flavor that makes it special. I also beat the whites to stiff peaks to lighten up the texture of the cake and make it softer.

The result is quite addicting!

Crustless Cheesecake with Marsala Raisins

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Yield: 6 Servings


  • 8 oz. cream cheese (I used Lebne)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 oz. sugar (use more or less to taste)
  • 1/3 cup rasins
  • 1/3 cup marsala


  1. Soak the raisins in the marsala
  2. Separate the eggs. Beat the yolks with the sugar and the cream cheese until the mixture is well blended and pale yellow.
  3. Drain the raisins and fold into the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Beat the whites to stiff picks and fold them in the the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Grease a cake pan and dust it with breadcrumbs.
  6. Pour the cream cheese mixture in the pan and bake in a 325F oven until golden brown and settled. It will take about 1 hour.
  7. Serve cold.
  8. Note the recipe is for a smaller cake, so use a small pan: I used a rather big one and the cake turned out good, but way too thin!
