Mango Cheesecake

Hello...all my blogger friends who had given me support for coming to and from to visit this Tea-time Delight blog of mine. So sorry that that I had being neglected it for so long. After a long break, I had decided to try out those recipes that I had being piling up for testing.....Hope we can continue to share and exchange our Tea-time experience.


I saw this recipe from one of the library books that I had got hold. Immediately, I had marked out a few interesting and tempting recipes which I would like to try them out. First of all, I choose to try this Mango Cheesecake because I simply loves the taste and fragrant of Mango. This cheesecake is sort of light without those strong cheesy taste, it's also refreshing with the mango fragrant and consists of chewy and Q texture because of the Gelatine.

Ingredients For Biscuit Base:
120g Plain Digestive Biscuit, crushed
120g Salted Butter, melted
Filling:
250g Philadelphia Cream Cheese
250ml Dairy Whipping Cream
2 Egg Yolks
160g Castor Sugar
150ml Full Cream Milk
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
2 1/2 Tablespoons Gelatine Powder
5 Tablespoons Of Water
2 Mangoes, peeled and diced

Methods:
1. Combine the biscuit crumbs and melted butter while it is still hot and mix well.
2. Pour into a 8"(20cm) round spring form baking tin, press till firm and put into the fridge to chill for more than 1/2 hour.
3. Beat the cream cheese at medium speed until soft.
4. In another bowl, lightly beat dairy whipping cream at medium speed for 3 minutes then add it into the cream cheese mixture and beat till well combined.
5. Mixed gelatine powder and 5 tablespoons water and double boiled until dissolved then set aside.
6. Double-boil Egg yolks, caster sugar, milk and lemon juice until sugar dissolve(stir while double-boiling, because not to let it boiled).
7. Add in dissolved gelatine mixture into the egg mixture and stir till combine.
8. Pour the egg mixture into the cream cheese and beat well with a whisk. (don't worry if you see some lumpy cheese in the mixture it will not affect the texture)
9. Arrange the mango cubes onto the biscuit base and pour in cream cheese mixture. Put into the fridge and chill for at least 2 hours or over night.

Notes:
a) I used 100ml Full Cream Milk + 50ml Fresh Mango Juice to enhance the Mango flavour.Posted by Picasa

  1. Hi Ellena,

  5. Hi Irene,

    I am not so sure whether this will turn out well if you omit the mango cubes. But if you will to try, you can try to replace the whipped cream by thickening cream(so that it texture will be stronger) If you do try out this recipe, do let me know how is it.... :)

  8. "No problem is too big for him" Thats a promise He wants us to believe. Its too easy to believe but its difficult, so dont let that mind swirl you into confusion, just pray and keep praying to believe in this promise. Pray and ask to pray till you experience that lightness else you have not reach that stage of getting the presence of His Spirit. May I have the honor to keep you in prayer too.
    God is always always always there and be sure He will glorified through you,

  10. Hi Ellena,
    tried this cheesecake without the mango. Hubby find it nice except its too sweet and he does not like sweet tooth, its nice as its creamy enuff. Beside the sugar content, my cheesecake doesnt stick to the biscuit base. Tried ur jam too, its nice. My 2 plummet of strawberry only yield about 1 cup, maybe i cook too much.

  12. Hi!

    Is it possible to omit the gelatine? What is its purpose anyway?

    1. Hi Jos,

      Since this is a non-bake cheesecake, the purpose of gleatine is to bind and harden the cake or else it will be gluey like paste instead of CAKE! Hope that help :)
