Pieday Friday Recipe – Baked vanilla cheesecake

| 1 Comment

Today is my brother Alex’s birthday and I offered to bake his favourite cake for him. When I asked him what type of cake he wanted he replied “cheese”. So baked cheesecake it is then!

Here’s the recipe I used and some photos of the process:

  • 225g digestive biscuits
  • 100g butter , melted
  • 250g tub mascarpone
  • 600g soft cheese
  • 2 eggs , plus 2 yolks
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp plain flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line the bottom of a 23cm springform tin with greaseproof paper. Tip the biscuits and melted butter into a food processor, then blitz to make fine crumbs. (I don’t have a food processor, so I put the biscuits into a freezer bag and bashed them with a rolling pin). Press into the tin and chill.

       

2. Whisk all the other ingredients in a large bowl until completely combined, pour into the tin, then bake for 35-40 mins until the cheesecake has a uniform wobble. (This took a while longer in my oven than the recipe said, about 50 mins before it browned on the top)

3. Turn off the oven and leave the cake inside until cool. When it is completely cooled, remove from the tin and top with whipped cream. Swirl lemon curd over the top and decorate with raspberries, if you like. (I topped with happy birthday sign and candles instead)

           

Happy Birthday Bruv!
