Baked Caramel & White Chocolate Cheesecake 烤白巧克力焦糖起司蛋糕

Baked white chocolate cheesecake 2

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?

Note:

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.

My husband has been asking for a classic baked cheese cake.Since I bought this 6 packs cream cheese at good deal, thinking what to bake with it.

Classic baked cheese is something heavy in cheese.I remembered that he is the reason i started to eat pizza and cheese cake. From how he grew up, classic cheese cake is always his favourite from his mom.

I want to make classic cheese cake with some twist. So added some fresh strawberry coulis into the cake.

Let’s get started shall we?

  6. Bake at 180C for 50-60minutes  until cake is set but still wobbly in the middle.
  7. Allow to cool in oven with door ajar(a) for an hour. Remove from oven and cool completely. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.

  9. Decorate with some fresh strawberry. Brush with some mirror glaze /clear glaze/nappage(b)(if you have).Serve.

Note:

(a)Ajar : something that is slightly open. Oven door ajar means oven door slightly open to allow hot temperature flows out slowly to prevent drastic temperature changes.

(b) Nappage : apricot glaze is a baking technique. Jam made from apricots is diluted with water to form a transparent, slightly apricot-colored glaze.You can find in any bakery store. Sometimes they called it neutral or mirror glaze.

Note:

  • You can just bake a classic plain cheese cake without strawberry coulis for your own preference.
  • Red wine added is optional,you can remove it from recipe.
  • You can turn this “baked cheesecake” recipe into ” New York cheesecake” by few changes:

a) replace yoghurt with sour cream, equal amount.

b) replace cake flour with corn flour, equal amount

c) New York cheese cake require water bath method: wrap aluminium foil around the base of cake pan, bake at 200c for 30 minutes until golden brown on

top, then turn down heat to 160c for another 30 minutes.You can leave in the oven with  door ajar for 30-60 minutes by removing the water bath.

d) classic baked cheesecake does not bake by using water bath,but i personal wrap with aluminium foil for preventing oil flowing out from the base mixture.You can always remove the aluminium foil and just bake it straight in the oven.
