Lemon Cheesecake

Happy New Year 2012 everyone!! I hope you had an enjoyable holiday season. This is my first post of the year 2012 ~ Lemon Cheesecake. Lemon is the perfect flavour for cheesecake. I'm sure no one can resist this extremely  light and refreshing hint of lemon dessert. This is also perfect to serve  with a cup of mint tea.



Lemon Cheesecake

      Ingredients

      Line and grease a 8" springform cake pan
     100g Marie biscuits, crushed
     80g Melted butter
  • Combine crushed biscuit crumbs and melted butter together in a mixing bowl. Press the biscuit crumbs onto the base of the prepared pan and chill in the refrigerator for later use.
      250g Cream Cheese
      30g Sugar
      3 Egg yolks
      65g Whipping cream
      1 Lemon zest
      3/4 tbsp Lemon juice
      1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
      1/2 tbsp Orange contreau
      20g Butter, melted
      2 tbsp Plain flour, sifted
      3 Egg whites
      35g Sugar

      Method:
  • Cream the cheese and sugar together and slowly add in whipping cream, beat till creamy at medium speed.
  • Scrape bowl and add egg yolks one at a time until all combined then add lemon zest, lemon juice,vanilla extract and orange contreau ~ beat to mix well.
  • Scrape bowl,  lower speed add in melted butter and plain flour, mix well and transfer cheese mixture to a large bowl.
  • Whisk egg whites and sugar till peak form. Use a rubber spatula to fold egg whites to cheese mixture.
  • Pour cheese mixture into prepared cake tin.
  • Steam bake at 160C for about 1 hour. Cool to room temperature and chill cheesecake before serve.
  • You may like to mix some cocoa powder and snow powder together and dust on cheesecake.

Enjoy!

  4. wow - so pretty Ann. Love all amazing shots of Marina Bay too.

    I visited a large Chinese supermarket when I was in Scotland earlier in the week and have come back with a varied assortment of "stuff". I'll need to get some advice from you on what to do with it. Over the moon that I managed to get hold of some pandanus leaf which is something else I've never tried.

    Happy New Year and all the best for 2012

  19. Hello! Could you share with us how did you do that beautiful curly choco deco you put on top of your lemon cheesecake? :) Love,Faith :)

  20. Hello Ann, Happy New Year! Looks like the Marina Bay Sands Hotel has become the new icon hotel in S'pore? I've just told my friend in Fb that it looks like an invasion of alien spaceship. Very special structure. Guess what, my camera is having a strike, don't know what I've touched but it doesn't focus properly now & I can't take photos like last time now, so feel a bit down. If I still can't work out the problem, will need to send it for repair & I think the bill won't be cheap, wooooo!

  21. Thank you Amy. Happy New Year to you!

    Anne, Thank you for your compliment and Happy New Year to you too :) How about sending you the whole cake... :DD

    Hi Mel, Thank you. Happy 2012 to you too!
    Snow powder usually can stay in and out of the fridge (it will not melt) as icing sugar can and very sweet too.

  46. @Angel @ Cook.Bake.Love
    Hi Angel, Happy New Year to you too!
    Thank you... you're right. Was actually trying to take some night scene pictures and so glad they turned out well.

    I always removed the cake from the oven immediately after baked and leave it in the cake mould until cooled. Just remember to use a sharp knife to run the sides of the cake tin after baked. This will prevent the cake too much shrinking. Most important is how you whisk the egg white like chiffon cake.

  47. Looks absolutely delectable! :) Rich and creamy and perfect, and your presentation is gorgeous.
    Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Happy New Year Ann and nice pictures of the Esplanade area (especially the floating balls). I saw your lemon cheesecake on FG and it looks amazing. Definitely on par with some of the better bake shops out there. Here's to more cooking/baking from everyone and more beautiful creations from you.
