Yes, i know i've promised some to email the recipe for my baked cheesecake i did last winter. (read it here) i'm sorry for the delay (by one season! hehe).
The reason being, the first time i did it, it turned out good, surprisingly! the second time round, it.. well.. sort of went.. err.. lets just say it didnt turn out like a cheesecake (altho the taste was there). no point putting a picture in here.
Honestly, i dont know what went wrong. the only thing i noticed was the first time i did it, i accidently put the oven on grill (betul!!! i swear!), and the second time, i put it on bake. am i suppose to grill a cheesecake?!
I am still discovering my oven, so bear with me!
Anyway guys, it tastes and will look really really good, if you dare to try it on grill! if you happen to try this out, do let me know how it turns out k?
TRADITIONAL BAKED CHEESECAKE
250g Digestive biscuits/ Sweet Biscuits
125g Butter, melted
500g Cream Cheese (phillidelphia's good) at room temp
165g castor sugar
2tsp vanilla essence
1 lemon rind, grated, juiced
4 eggs, seperated
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush a 20cm springform pan with melted butter.
2. To make the base, crush biscuits with hand or use a food processor until fine. Add butter and process until well combined. Transfer to the pan and use the back of a spoon or hand to spread evenly over the base. Place in the fridge until required.
3. To make the filling, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla essence in a medium bowl until the mixture is creamy. Add the lemon rind, lemon juice, egg yolks and cream. Beat until well combined and the mixture is light and fluffy.
4. Use clean electric beaters or a balloon whisk to whisk the egg whites in a medium bowl until peaks form. Add to the cream cheese mixture and use a large metal spoon to fold until just combined.
5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until just set in the centre. Remove from the oven to cool completely.
6. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight to firm.
7. Add any filling or simply dust with icing sugar.
Smakelijk Eten (That's enjoy your food in dutch!)
