This white chocolate and caramel cheese cake sounded so sweet but once taste it, you will throw away the first “sweet” impression, it is not sweet at all, I am telling ya~ hehhehe
My husband loves cheesecake,the heavier of the flavour the better for him.That explains why he gives me a pet name called: “Jong Belegen Kaas” which means “young cheese” in Dutch. So he bought 6 blocks of cream cheese,I cannot let it sit in fridge until all turn bad, then decided to make this cake after the first block of cheese for tiramisu. I think more cheese to use in baking soon.
Classic baked cheese cake is his favourite and commonly bake for him, let’s try something new. I have packets of white chocolate from the last purchase, thought to use it for chocolate work during autumn,but I was living in flu during the entire autumn.I have to finish it quick. What about “white chocolate with caramel infusion?”
Let’s get started, shall we?
- 100g maria /McVITIES digestive biscuits ( or any digestive biscuit)
- 60g Western Star unsalted butter, melted ( or any unsalted butter)
1) Process the cookies until formed crumbs, slowly pour in melted butter and mix to well combine.
2)Transfer the mixture to a (6″) 15cm removable around cake pan. Use a straight-sided glass or hand to spread and press the biscuit mixture firmly over the base.Allow to chill in freezer for 20 minutes.
- 170g Philadelphia cream cheese ( or any cream cheese )
- 140g Bulla sour cream ( or any sour cream )
- 50g sugar
- 100g Cadbury baking white chocolate, melted over double boiler (Or any baking white chocolate)
- 140ml Bulla whipping cream ( or any dairy whipping cream )
- 65g castor sugar
- 1tbsp water
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tbsp corn flour
1)Microwave cream cheese on high heat for 30 seconds.Beat cheese with sugar until creamy and soft.
2)Add in sour cream,then add in eggs, one at a time, and corn flour . Mix well.
3)How to prepare caramel:In a saucepan: Heat up sugar and water on medium high heat until turn amber colour, turn off the heat. [ Picture 1 ]
4)Microwave cream 30 seconds to 1 minute on high heat until just boiled, slowly pour into caramel (3).[Picture 3]
5)After 1 minute, stir in melted white chocolate into caramel from step (4).Mix well.
6)Pour in white chocolate-caramel mixture from step (5) into cheese mixture step (3).Pour into cake pan with the biscuit base earlier. Wrap in 2 layers of aluminium foil.
7)Bake at water bath at 200C for 30 minutes ,then 150C for 30 minutes.
8)Once done, remove from oven, allow to cool completely. Chill in refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Remove from cake pan and serve.
a)When handling or making caramel, remember to be careful. When pouring the hot cream into hot caramel, you will see some big reaction from here, just stay alert.
b)Do not over cook the caramel until turn dark amber otherwise it creates bitterness in your caramel.Do not stir when cooking caramel.Only swirl around by moving the pan.
c)Alternatively, I baked this cake in a 8″(20cm) round removable cake pan for 200C for 30 minutes, then 150C for another 15 minutes.
d)Chill cheesecake overnight only taste better.
