Lately I have been craving desert after dinner and cookies🍪 and chocolate 🍫were just not doing it for me 😱. So I decided to roll up my sleeves and whip up something decadent and delicious and here is what I came up with ✨Custard Cheesecake!✨
I love cheesecake but i feel it’s too heavy sometimes so I thought about combining it with my other favorite custard 🍮and it turned out to be the best of both worlds 😋, it has the texture of soft, silky custard with a hint of creamy cheesecake yum!🔆
So here it is peeps 💖! Shopaholic’s Custard Cheesecake!💞
✨You will need:
🍰 4 medium eggs beaten till pale and frothy,
🍰 600 grams of cream cheese beaten till smooth,
🍰10 digestive biscuits crushed till fine crumbs or you can use any cookie or biscuit of your liking,
🍰3 tbsp butter melted ➕ 1 tbsp for coating the cake pan
🍰 1 tbsp all purpose flour for coating cake pan
🍰1/3 cup heavy cream
🍰1.5 cups icing sugar
🍰1 tsp vanilla essence
🍰cocoa powder for decoration optional
🍰All ingredients must be at room temperature🌡.
✨Beat the cream cheese with the icing sugar, cream and vanilla till well combined.
✨Beat eggs separately and add to the cream cheese mixture and mix well the battery should be smooth with no lumps.
✨Put the cookies in a zip lock bag and beat the crap out of them till they look like a pile of crumbs 😁.
✨Mix the cookie🍪crumbs with the melted butter and spread on the bottom of a greased springform pan ( just rub the 1 tbsp butter on the bottom and sides of the pan and sprinkle the all purpose flour to coat the bottom and sides voila❗️). Take aluminum foil and wrap it around the pan making sure to pinch the foil to seal the cake pan and prevent the batter from leaking.
✨Bake in a preheated 170 C oven for 5 mins. Set aside till cool then stick it in the fridge for 10 mins to cool even 🌬further.
✨ Pour your batter on top of the cookie base and place it a roasting pan. Then fill the roasting pan with hot 💦water half way up the sides of your cake pan. Cheesecakes need to be baked in a water 💧bath to prevent them from drying out and cracking on the top.
✨Bake for 45 mins in a 170 C oven till cake appears firm, stick a toothpick or knife in the center to check it should come out clean. Cool ❄️cake in the pan completely, decorate it with whipped cream, fresh fruit or cocoa powder like I’ve done🍰. Stick it in the fridge till chilled and enjoy!😋
