A cheesecake to me should be moist and dense with a thick crushed biscuit crust garnished with wet dripping fruit toppings on top.*wipe drool off face* I love the cheesecakes my kakyong makes but too lazy to whip up one for myself due to the tedious steps.*tedious steps to this amateur baker involve more than...like 4!* A cheesecake can be such a fuss to make, there's this water bath technique, also there's the steam process, the normal convectional baking, all these would affect the turnout of your cheesecake, texture and taste wise. I always make the non baked ones as my children prefer this type, and it is easier too. But the recipe I am about to share with you is a simple baked cheesecake that you can easily vary with a dash of ganache for marble cheesecake or dallop of your favaurite fruit toppings. The one featured here is a marbled one made especially for my mum and she persistently requested to have a very very thick biscuit crust also she loves everything and anything chocolate.I found this recipe somewhere in the net quite sometime ago, but I cant remember where. So if this recipe belongs to you, do leave me a line so that I could give proper credits to. Here goes...
Easy Peasy Cheesecake
Crushed biscuit mix, any amount you desire.
Press mix into the bottom of your cake pan and bake for 5 minutes.
500gm cream cheese
3/4 cup of castor sugar,
2 large eggs,
1 teaspoon of vanilla or lemon,
1. Cream together cheese, sugar, eggs and essence till fluffy.
2. Bake til skewer comes out a lil bit sticky.
Done! See, it takes less than 4 steps!
When cooked, leave the oven door ajar and let it cool. Put it in the fridge before serving.
To make a marble cheesecake mix 5 Tablespoons ganache with probably 5 tablespoons of the cheese mixture and make swirls in the main cheese batter. The thing with me is I seldom measure the exact amount of the ingredients due to my laziness, but I think you can figure it out.
*Note to self : Measure, measure measure next time!
