Baking is not my strong point! But I have a strange urge to make cheesecake....

ETA: Due to food issues, it can't contain any flavour other than vanilla. So can't use lemon, any fruit other than peeled pear, and no chocolate/cocoa.

Are you still on that freaky 'everything is banned' diet Mamabug?

If not... grab a tin of condensed milk, some lemons, a block of philli cheese, a packet of biscuits (gingernuts are nice) and some butter and stay tuned till I find my friend's recipe..

This is damn close..

The important thing is the lemon juice. That's what makes it set.

I stir blueberries/raspberries/random fruits through the mix too.  

Although my friend (purist) makes a syrup of lemon juice and sugar and pours that over the top of thin slices of lemon placed in a geometrically perfect manner on top of the set cheesecake and sets it some more.

Use a spring form cake tin too...

Not this week!!!! This week is Dairy Challeneg Week (praise the blessed saints), thus the urge to attempt making the Biggest Bug a cheesecake.  original.gif

We can have:
Butter
Creme Fraiche
Cream
Sour cream
Ricotta
Mascapone
cream cheese
cottage cheese
plain yoghurt
condensed milk.

Just read your second post - can't have gingernuts, but can have Arnott's Nice; can't have lemon, but can have vanilla.

Then in the blender put a tin of condensed milk, packet of cream cheese( 250g) and the juice of 2 lemons

Poor over and pace in fridge for a few hours at least

I don't have a blender or food process, will a hand-held mixer do?

OIh, and do I put the crumbs just on the bottom, or do you have to do the sides as well? Does one packet make enough to do the sides?

Just make sure they are not Myer lemons - the cheesecake wont set!

However this is the recipie I've used:

Ingredients
250g plain sweet biscuits
125g butter, melted
3 tsp gelatine
250g cream cheese
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon rind
1/2 cup caster sugar
250g cream, whipped
Method

Lightly grease a 20cm springform tin with oil or melted butter. Line the base with baking paper. Finely crush the biscuits in a food processor or in a bag with a rolling pin. Mix together with the melted butter. Press into the base and side of the tin and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle the gelatine over 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Place over a pan or bowl of hot water and leave until spongy. Stir until dissolved. Beat the cream cheese, lemon juice, rind and sugar with electric beaters for 4-5 minutes, or until smooth. Add the cooled gelatine to the bowl and beat well.
Using a large metal spoon, fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Spoon evenly into the tin carefully smooth the surface and refrigerate until set.

I use condensed milk not cream though.

The lemon is what makes it set....

#11 iavy

Posted 08 January 2013 - 03:59 PM

1 packet does fine, I just do the base.

Hand mixer will do as long as the cream cheese is soft at room temp to mix properly

#12 CountryFeral

Posted 08 January 2013 - 03:59 PM

Oh and you don't need a food processor.... you need small children and a couple of plastic bags and a rolling pin!

#13 Mamabug

Posted 08 January 2013 - 03:59 PM

Gelatine???? Or frozen cheesecake????

Fortunately, what I lack in cooking (and dietary) skills, I make up for in small children....

I always use a rolling pin and a bag of some sort. You would need a big pack of bikkies to do the sides

Gelatine!

I've used it before - when my sneaky friend wouldn't share her recipe and I didn't have access to the internet!  

I tried to work it out for myself.... used a bit much from memory... very 'firm' cheescake it was.

Mel, how much is too much??? Or, more to the point, how much is just right?!

And what would the rest of the recipe be???

#19 CountryFeral

Posted 08 January 2013 - 04:10 PM

Rest of the recipe was the same - bickie base, Philly cheese and condensed milk topping (with fruit of choice) and well... I'm guessing NOT a tablespoon of gelatine granules.. a little less!

You can just do a biscuit base as mentioned, put it n a fluted tart tin with removable base  (do sides and base) leave in fridge for an hour then fill with a mixture of whipped cream,  a tub of mascarpone, spoon of icing sugar and if you want chocolate flavour 150g dark choc, melted and cooled. Whip together.  Top with berries or grated choc as desired.

My grandmother used to do something similar to this one. Freaking awesome, using gelatine and no lemon juice. At the very least it gives you an idea on how much gelatine.

This looks pretty straightforward!

You could leave off the passion fruit and top with chopped peeled pears and drizzle with caramel sauce original.gif

I usually use the following for the quick and easy lemon cheesecake.
1 or 2 tins of condensed milk
2 blocks of philly cream cheese
about 1/2 cup lemon juice(the riper the lemon the better)
2 packs of biscuit base

For a change you can exchange the biscuit base for gingernut biscuits, and put very well drained pineapple in it.

Cheesecake hint.

Fresh pineapple will prevent your cheesecake from setting.

It's science stuff...




*edited to add OR your jam (this now expands this handy hint from being purely cheesecake and opens it up to a 'generalised sweetness hint')
