Lychee Charlotte Cheesecake

This is a very special fragrant fruity Asian kind of cheesecake that I had never try making before. The very first time I saw this cake is from a blog pal's flicker picture. Then after a few months later, my best pal Tracy make this for her cell-group gathering. Base on what she had told me and feedback from her cell-group members on the cake that she had made. I decided to make one using lychee preserved in canned syrup.

You can use any basic non-baked cheesecake recipe, and just include some chopped lychee in the recipe and reserved some whole lychee on top as decoration. To make your cheesecake more presentable you can used some ready bought sponge cake and cut it into half then soaked one side with some lychee syrup and stick it on the surrounding of the spring form or mousse tin then prepare the biscuit based on top.

I can said, this is a very nice and refreshing cheesecake compare to those that I had made or eaten before. It's neither too sweet or cheesy and with the added whipped cream, it made the texture of the cheesecake more smooth and silky......Posted by Picasa

Durian Cheesecake With Chocolate Fudge

My family had always being a Durian Lover. Especially my brother and my aunty's family. So I decided to come up with this special durian cheesecake using a basic non-bake cheesecake recipe.

Em... maybe you will ask me or wonder how does the taste like when you have a mixture of dark chocolate fudge with creamy durian cheese filling? I can tell you, it's a very special combination. As if you can have 3 different taste and texture within a cake itself. The crunch of the Oreo Biscuit, the smooth and creamy Durian Cheese Filling and lastly top with chewy Dark Chocolate Fudge. It's really heavenly match....

Although you need a few more ingredients and steps to make this Non-Bake cheesecake but it's really worth it and you can interchange the main ingredients with other fruits like: Mango, Strawberry, Blueberry or etc instead of Durian.Posted by Picasa

Ingredients For Crust:
225g - 250g Chocolate Oreo Biscuit, finely crushed
150g Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled

1. Use a large sheet of aluminum foil to wrap the base of a 7" x 7" square cake ring.
2. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter into the biscuit cumbs then stir till the mixture it's almost combined(you might not need to add in all the melted butter) and press into cake ring and chill in the fridge until firm. (about 20 mins - 30 mins).

Ingredients For Durian Fillings:
250g Cream Cheese
70g Caster Sugar
250g Durian Flesh
1 Tablespoon Gelatine Powder
50ml Warm Water
125g Plain Yogurt
200g Non-Dairy Whipping Cream

1. Double boil or microwave the gelatine powder with 50ml warm water until dissolved and set aside.
2. Beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy and light, then add in the durian flesh and continue to beat until well combined.
3. Next pour in the melted gelatine mixture and yogurt then stir till combined.
4. Lastly pour in the whipping cream and slowly stir till the mixture is creamy and well mixed.
5. Pour the mixture into the prepared biscuit base tin and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight then proceed to the chocolate fudge.

Ingredients For Chocolate Fudge:
150g Semi Bitter Dark Chocolate
100ml Whipping Cream
30g Unsalted Butter

1. Put all the ingredients in a pan/glass bowl over boiling water(or use double boiler).
2. Whisk the ingredients for 5 minutes or so until the fudge is smooth and glossy.
3. Let the warm fudge cool down to room temperature before pouring into the firm cheesecake top and tap the cake a few times to release any air bubbles.
4. Put it back into the fridge and let the chocolate fudge set for about an hour or so before cutting into slices and served.

a) When making this cheesecake, try to make it in square tin so that the layer will not be too tall or else you will end up with a thick layer of durian cream cheese filling.
b) I suggest a 7" x 7" square tin or 8" round tin will do a great job.

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.

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

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.

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