cookingtaco: Adding blended up macadamia to my brownie mix. (Default)
The surprise is that the surprise was ruined! The surprise was supposed to be that this cheesecake is baked, but the title ruins that!

So I have returned to this plateau of cooking, this blog of Gods. I have returned to share my ancient, arcane and revelatory knowledge that will single handedly transform the way we look at cooking!

... Ok, I'll stop now.

So yes, this time, I decided to try a baked cheesecake. The reason for this is that it allows for longer transport times.

I modified the recipe I used the last time slightly

HERE ARE THE AMENDED INGREDIENTS!

Scotch Finger Biscuits 250g (A small packet)
Butter 125g
Strawberry Jelly 85g (A packet)
Strawberries 500g (Two punnets)
Thickened Cream 300ml
Philadelphia Cream Cheese 250g (One packet)
Water 100g
Sugar 100g

So, like last time, I blended up the biscuits and added the butter and then blended it some more. Then I lay baking paper down on the baking tin (I don't have a "spring pan") and then proceeded to push the biscuit mixture into the base. I then put it in the fridge.

After that, I got half the strawberries and cut them up and put them in the blender to puree them. Then I added the cream cheese, thickened cream and sugar. Then I added the eggs.

After that, I poured it into the tin and baked it in the oven at 180C for about half an hour.

While it was baking, I cut the other strawberries up into big bits (quarters and such) and then boiled the water and added the jelly to it, making sure it all dissolved. Then I added the chopped strawberries and let them stew for awhile.

Now here is where it kind of went a bit fail. Basically, I tried putting some strawberries on the cake, they sunk, so I turned up the heat and waited, put the rest on, and then the cake kind of puffed up and engorged the strawberries.

Here's what it looks like:

I chose the blurry picture because it's not worth seeing in focus...

I may post another picture of a slice which may look nicer.

A few mistakes that I made in this recipe. Firstly, it was too liquidly. I should have used less cream. And maybe even used less egg in favour of more cream cheese. Also the topping was a bit of a disaster. As you can see in the picture, there was only enough to cover half the cheesecake. So next time, maybe use two punnets? Also, I think next time I will use a higher heat and not use fanforced. Cakes seem to like that better.

Hopefully the taste will make up for its appearance.

EATFOOD!
