Cheese cake - From sanjeev kapoor sweets and desserts book
So,yesterday I baked a plain cheese cake for the first time and I got the similar taste and texture. It was good. I am planning to bake more of these with more ingredients. Also , I would love to try the cheese cakes which does not require baking.
This recipe is adapted from Sanjeev kapoor's sweets and desserts book.
- Preheat the oven to 180c. For the crust ,mix together all the ingredients with hand and spread in a baking dish covering bottom and one inch up the sides. Set aside.
- Cream together cream cheese and sugar till smooth taking care that no lumps remain. Seperate yolks and whites of eggs carefully.Lightly beat egg yolks and mix into the cream cheese and sugar mixture. Stir in the essence. Using a whisk or hand blender , beat egg whites till they form soft peaks. Fold in the beaten egg whites into the mixture. Pour this mixture over the crust lined in the baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven at 180c for 20 to 30 minutes or till the centre is firm.
- Cool and refrigerate. Serve chilled with fresh fruits or glaced cherries.
