Prepare 18cm (7-inch) cake ring. Line the ring with cake collar. Set aside.
In a small bowl place gelatin, add milk, mix and allow to bloom for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile make the cream: in a saucepan, place eggs, cornstarch and 1/4 cup (60ml) milk. Whisk until smooth and no lumps. Add the remaining 1 3/4 cups of milk and mix well.
Place the saucepan over the stove and heat over low heat, while constantly whisking until thickens, it takes about 5-7 minutes. When thickens, remove from heat and add honey and vanilla bean paste. Mix until incorporated.

Pour the mixture into prepared cake ring and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.

WHAT KING OF CHEESE WE CAN USE?
In this cake I used 3% farmer's cheese. I know farmer's cheese is not popular in some countries, so here is a list of cheese that will work: Ricotta cheese, cottage cheese (blended and drained), low fat cream cheese, white cheese or any other soft/semi soft cheese with low fat content and high protein.
WHAT CAN WE USE INSTEAD OF HONEY?
The beauty of this recipe is that you can use any sweetener that you like. Such as: maple syrup, agave syrup, date syrup or sugar substitutes such as stevia.
HOW LONG CAN WE STORE THE CAKE?
The cake can be stored in an airtight container, in the fridge up to 5-6 days. Or in the freezer for a several months.
Using Honey (whole cake/one serving)
