Have been down with a sore throat for almost the entire week and that throat of mine does not seem to be recovering as it should be. My mum would reckon that the cause of my sore throat is due to my baking and eating the food straight out of the oven. Oh well I will still bake with a sore throat!
Its been almost a month since I baked sweet stuff and today I crave for something light and simply. With three packet of cream cheese sitting in my fridge. Cheesecake is just perfect!
No dramas, No fancy dressing. Just simply Cheesecake.
The best recipe I found has to be this recipe from allrecipes.
Ingredient ( I halved the recipe)
15 Pieces of Wholemeal biscuit ( I used Leibniz biscuit)
2 Tbs Butter
425g cream cheese
3/4C white sugar
1/4C and 2 Tbs Milk
1/2 C Sour cream ( I used 1/2C yoghurt + 1.5 Tsp baking powder)
1.5 Tsp Vanilla extract
2 Tbs All-purpose flour
1) Preheat oven to 175 degree C. Grease a 9 inch springfoam pan.
2) In a medium bowl, mix biscuit crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan.
3) In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in yoghurt, baking powder, vanilla and flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust.
4) Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour ( Mine took only 40mins because its only half the ingredients). Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 2-3 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
( I tried it while its warm, and it tasted great too! )
