Place on oven tray and bake at 180°C (160°C fan-forced) for 10 minutes. Cool for about 15 minutes, then carefully remove from tin and cool completely.

  3. 3 Beat egg white in a clean bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar and beat until thick. Fold egg white mixture into cream cheese in two batches.
