Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/ 347°F.
  2. For the crust, melt the butter and cocoa butter in low heat.
  3. If you use rolled oats, then blend the oats in the food processor into the flour.
  4. Blend the almond into almond flour. Mix almond flour, oat flour and cocoa powder.
  5. Mix the almond and oats flour, cocoa powder, vanilla, maple syrup, coconut palm sugar with butter. Mix well.
  6. Press the mixture into the bottom of the 24 cm spring form and put it into refrigerator while doing the filling.
  7. For the filling, mix the soft cheese with vanilla, honey and maple syrup at medium-low speed until creamy, about 2 minutes.
  8. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time.
  9. Add whipping cream.
  10. Continue on low speed until it´s like cream, but don’t over-beat. The batter should be smooth, light and airy.
  11. Take the spring form out of the refrigerator.
  12. Add 1/3 of the cherries at the bottom of the cake.
  13. Pour in the filling.
  14. Add the rest of the cherries. Stir with toothpick.
  15. Cover the spring form with folium and put it on the bigger pan into the oven.
  16. Pour some warm water on the pan. The spring form should be half way or 1/3 in the water bath. Make sure that no water gets into the cake. The bottom of the cake form and edges should be covered with folium, then there won´t get water inside.
  17. Bake for 45 minutes. (It´s better if you don´t open the door)
  18. Turn off the oven and let the cake rest in the warm oven for 1 hour.
  19. Let the cake cool in the room temperature for about 2 hours.
  20. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  21. The cheesecake gets thicker if it stays.
  22. Run a round-bladed knife around the sides of the tin to loosen any stuck edges.
  23. Unlock the side.
  24. Blend some of the cherries with maple syrup.
  25. Serve with jam and cherries. (If you use frozen cherries then put the cherries on the top right before serving. Otherwise it will make the cake too wet when it stays longer in the refrigerator)
  26. Enjoy!
Notes
