I love cheesecake! I think you know I love cheesecake, just by going through my blog. I did some reading, looked through my own blog and used my own recipe, tweaked the method a bit and there you have it!
My own baked cheesecake, I was so amazed when it came out perfect, delicious and mouth watering. This will be a new family favourite in any home!
I hope to bring you some more new and improved, elevated recipes.
500g Cream Cheese at room temperature
300ml Fresh Cream
125ml Caster Sugar
3 Tablespoons Flour
3 Egg Yolks at room temperature
3 Egg Whites at room temperature
60ml Lemon Juice
5 Yellow Kiwi Fruit, peeled, cut up and juiced
1 Packet of Vanilla Biscuits
2 Tabelspoons Melted Butter
Pinch of salt
For the base, begin to line a big springform cake pan with baking paper on the base. Set aside. Crush 1 packet of biscuits, add the melted butter and mix well. Press onto the base on the baking paper. Set aside.
Using an electric standing mixer and the cream attachement, cream the cream cheese slowly, add in the fresh cream, cream on low speed and slowly increase the speed and cream together, till just mixed.
Add in the caster sugar, mix well. Slowly add in the 3 egg yolks and mix well till well incorporated. Add in the flour and pinch of salt and mix well till just mixed.
In a separate bowl, using a hand mixer, beat the egg whites till stiff peaks form. Slowly fold in the egg whites, till well incorporated.
Fold in the yellow kiwi fruit juice slowly, lastly fold in the lemon juice. Don’t overmix. The cheese mixture should be light, airy and cake dough consistency.
Pour the mixture into the springform cake pan onto the base. Place in a preheated oven on the middle shelf on 180 degrees celsius for 55 minutes.
Don’t open the oven at all while the cheesecake is baking.
The cheesecake should be golden brown on top and on the sides. After baking, leave the cheesecake to cooldown in the oven.
Remove from the springform cake pan, place in the fridge to set further overnight. Serve with some coffee or tea or just as dessert!
