Let's Celebrate Our Friend's Birthday With American Cheesecake

UPDATE:

Today Divya Vikram of Dilse is celebrating her " " birthday(he he he secret,,)....So let's celebarate her birthday with this cheesecake.Dedicating this one to birthday baby!!!!!!!!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIVYA,,,,ENJOY UR SPECIAL DAY....

RECIPE:

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert. When Priya of 365 vegetarian posted her instant strawberry cheesecake recipe, I was pretty much tempted to try it out. I tried out this American Cheesecake recipe with my own modifications. Since I don’t have the spring form pan I used the normal baking pan and I covered the entire pan with foil. And also left some extra outside so that I can lift the cake with the foil once it chills.


INGREDIENTS:

Butter - 1cup
Butter biscuits(crushed) - 11/4 cup
Sugar - 11/4cup
Cream cheese, softened-1/2cup
Heavy whipping cream - 1/2cup
Sweetened Condensed Milk -1cup
Eggs-3
Lemon juice1-2tsp
Sour cream - 1cup
Knox unflavored gelatin - 2tsp
White Jello - 1packet

METHOD:

To prepare the biscuit base mix butter and crushed biscuits (I crushed it in food processor) thoroughly. Place the mix into the pan and press it all down evenly using hands. Place it in a fridge for 15 mins to stiffen.

To make the cheese mixer, in a mixing bowl beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk, sour cream and whipping cream until smooth. Dissolve gelatin in a 1/4 cup of boiling water stir it well allow it to cool slightly then add to the mixture. Add eggs then lemon juice and mix well. At last add sugar and beat it.

Now pour the cheese mixture into the pan slowly and evenly.Place it into the lower part of the oven and bake them for 45 mins. When the cheesecake is ready it should be cooked but have wobble consistency.Let it cool down and place it in fridge to set for minimum of 4hours.

For the top prepare the white jello according to the package instructions and pour it slowly on to the cheesecake. Refrigerate until the jelly is set.
Garnish with strawberry.



P.S:I missed the step of adding vanilla essence.And I tried little decorations using whipped cream....Didn't come out well,so removed those:(((((

Medhaa said...

I just love cheese cake, even when I was in India where cheese cakes are not that famous and freely available in Bangalore, my father would order it from Sweet Chariot to just make sure I have it. And no one at all in our family of 15 (Joint Family) liked it and I got to eat most of it which I just did not mind.

Great now I shall try this.

It was really sweet of you to make it for Divya of Dil Se on her B'day.
