Exam is in 11 days :O It is almost the end of the semester and everyone is busy with assignments, dissertation and of course the preparation for the exam and I am one of them. I feel like there are too many things to read and memorise and practice. Ughhh, I wish this would end soon. But, after a
full half day trying to squeeze all the information from the textbook and put it into my brain, I believed I deserved a reward hehe.. XD
So, Mel and I went out to Fenham to get some ingredients to make a cheesecake! We always use this one recipe that we found in a book called Grandma’s Recipe. It is as simple as ABC and trust me, it tastes really good and not too sweet.
Temperature: 180 C
200g digestive biscuits
50g butter, melted
600g cream cheese
150ml sour cream (you can replace it with full fat yoghurt)
175g caster sugar
2 large eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
2 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
100g fruits (strawberries or blueberries, it’s up to you)
100g blueberry/strawberry jam
200g more fruits
There are only three simple steps to follow. First, crush the digestives and combine with melted butter and bake for 5 minutes. Second, mix all ingredients from group B and whisk it. Put it on top of your base and bake for about 40-50 minutes until the middle part has set and the side turn brownish.
So, the original recipe used jam and fruits as the topping where you can heat the jam with a bit of water in a pan or pot and mix it with the fruits. Next, you pour it on top of the cheesecake. However, make sure the cake is properly cooled before that. This time, instead of putting jam on top of the cake, we decided to put whipped cream and sliced fruits. P/s: mix a bit of cream cheese and maybe a tsp of sugar into the cream to make a super duper and awesome whipped cream 😀
Till next time!
