if only... plus there was a lot of cheesecake
Has anyone tried Tesco's chocolate cheesecake? It's amazing!
I've changed my recipe for cheesecakes recently
Base: 10 to 12 biscuits (digestives or oaty) bash to crumbs, bind with ~50g butter, put into 20cm springform tin and bake @180 for 10 mins
600g full fat philly at room temp, mix in the bowl a little to get rid of lumps
Add 200g sour cream, 150g sugar, 30g cornflour, zest of half a lemon, 1 tsp vanilla extract, mix until lump free.
Add 4 medium eggs bit by bit, beat till lump free.
Pour onto base and bake @ 100 C (fan) for 90 mins. Allow to cool completely before removing from tin.
Yup it's in the oven for a long time but this gives a really good texture and helps stop cracks from
forming. Less beating seems to make the cake creamier.
For reference my recipe is:
for a 9-inch tin
for the base -
1 1/4 cups [~300g] of biscuits of choice
30g [unsalted] butter
for the cheesecake -
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon plain flour
3x 300g packages cream cheese
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon
1 vanilla pod
1/4 cup double cream, the thicker the better
3 large eggs + 1 egg yolk
Pre-heat oven to ~160°C
Grease the inside of the tin with butter
Crush biscuits of choice, mix with melted butter and line the bottom of the tin.
mix flour and sugar then add to the cream cheese, mix until smooth
then add cream, zest and vanilla, and again mix until smooth
add eggs, mix until smooth, and then put it into tin.
bake for 45-60 minutes, until brown at the edges and only just set in the middle, then turn oven off and leave for ~1 hour. Take it out, leave to cool and stuff face...
Cheesecake does need to be consumed more regularly in 2012, so I'm most definitely up for it. Is cheesecake available in Taiwan?
I am going to make my signiture cheesecake (if i can afford the ingredients as on dole) and when i do i wil put mine on for your all to drewl/get excited over it
My wife gets acetate wrapped into a tube and melts white chocolate into it to hold the innards. Then filled with a ginger/ digestive biscuit base then a lemon or white chocolate based cheesecake using mascarpone. Served straight up and with a wick so it looks like a candle. She has too much bloody time on her hands...
Yes, but it's pretty much only NY style. They have weird tastes here for their own bread and pastries.
Purchased a Co-operative 'new york style' vanilla cheesecake. It wasn't very good, Sainsbury's were much better
Yes, I remember the bread being more like cake... a little weird - bread shouldn't crumble when you eat it
While i don't have any pics of this. (it didn't last long enough to take one) I have made it a couple of times and while i don't have the caramel recipe down quite yet no one seems to mind.
Banana Caramel Cheescake.
Includes 4 layers of different amounts of awesomeness.
Base - Oatmeal cookies ground up with pecans and melted butter
Banana Layer - Firm Banana Slices sauted/carmalized in Brownsugar, butter and Rum
Cheese Layer - 2lbs of cream cheese with sugar and rum extract (or real rum)
Caramel Layer - It's Melted sugar with butter and whipping cream. Diabetics need not apply
It's as awesome as it sounds and tastes even better. When i get home i can post the actual recpie if there's interest
So I heard you like cheesecake?
How about chocolate, almond and orange cheesecake?
Yes, yes it's incredibly amazingly delicious, and cheesecake is surprisingly easy to make!
But... but... but.... there's a thread for cheesecake... And I want some
That looks and sounds delicious. Good work!
NO, A SECOND THREAD IS AGAINST THE TEACHINGS IN THE HOLY BOOK OF RELIX!
How, could you? *Goes away and cries.
Still, nice cheesecake!
Honestly, I've never even noticed the other one!
If someone would be a gem and merge that would be smashing.
could i get a slice pleeeeeeaaaaaasssssseeeee!
That was so quick I feel a bit ill!
Well, it cost about £5 to make, which makes it feel a bit pointless.
It's got a shot of Elijah Craig in there too .
It's... it's... beautiful.
I know what I may be doing this weekend...
