Tip

This cheesecake is more like a set custard. It is incredibly jiggly and wobbly when first cooked then it firms up a little as it cools and dries, settling to a more traditional baked cheesecake consistency.

Don’t be frightened by the dark exterior – that caramelised edge has just the right touch of bitterness to take the edge off the creamy interior.

• Check the cake is ready using the ‘jiggle test’: you want a little bit of wobble in the centre and not too much around the edge.

• It is normal for the cake to darken on top as it caramelizes but if you are concerned it’s getting too dark, place a sheet of baking paper over the cake about halfway through baking time.

    Amazing! Trust the recipe. It’s not the prettiest but it is so creamy and delicious it can be forgiven. I’ll definitely add the baking paper to the top halfway through cooking time as per the video next time.

    Had friends stay with us for Easter - as my girlfriend and I are keen Thermomix users we quite often experiment and share the experience. My friend arrived with this delicious cheesecake for us for the weekend. It is fabulous!! She did reduce the sugar to 100gm and added a bit of Vanilla bean paste as previous comment stated. It was perfect, so this recipe has now been added to 'my collection' for future reference.
    (My TM contribution was the No Fail Creamy Cauliflower Mash LCHF - tastes just like mashed potatoes and it was so delicious that we purchased more cauliflower and made it again for our dinner on Sunday night).

    Submitted by Lee MN on 7. January 2019 - 20:20.

    My 1st attempt failed miserably as the extremely watery mixture leaked like crazy through my springform pan and basically flooded the base of my oven.

    2nd attempt - lined the INTERNAL of the springform pan with aluminium foil. It aint pretty but it stopped the leak. When I removed the cake, it was rather soft and there was a slight watery / oil base at the bottom. I am not sure what caused it. I tried to remove the liquid and let the cake chill in the firdge overnight. That did the trick. The cake harden to a much nicer texture. Overall, I love the taste of this cake though I wonder if I could reduce the sugar amount by perhaps 1/3? Any suggestsion on :
    1) What kind of springform pan I should use so that I don't need to wrap the aluminium foil?
    2) Whether it is okay to reduce the sugar content (I am using TM31) to lets' say 200g?

    I am about to try this using cornflour instead of flour to make it Gluten Free.

    Not my idea, my friend and consultant does it GF and says it comes out perfect.

    This is a hit with the crew. I cut down the sugar to 100g and a splash of vanilla paste, still works a treat!

    There is a step missing in the recipient presented here (adding the cream to the cheesecake mix) which is in the recipie on the website, which also appears later in the post here. The cake is great - very easy to make and everyone enjoyed it.

    Submitted by letstryit on 17. November 2017 - 13:59.

    This cheesecake recipe seems to break the rules but trust the instructions and be reassured by watching the video! As a whole cake to present to friends and family, be prepared they might think you are sharing a culinary disaster with a cracked top, flopped down in the middle and burnt all over! But what a delicious surprise to discover how tasty the richly caramelised crust is. If you decorate with fresh berries in the centre it will complete your culinary triumph! A kilo of cream cheese plus cream and lots of eggs seems crazy, but you are sharing it with friends. Maybe some of the kilojoules get roasted out?!!!!

    Submitted by ArwensThermoPics on 17. November 2017 - 09:32.

    This is the best cheesecake ever & I never used to like baked cheesecakes, I've made it a million times & everyone who has tried it love it!! Plus it's so easy!! My hot tip is after pouring the mixture into the tin put some milk into the TM bowl & whizz it up on speed 10 for a few mins to clean the bowl & make yourself a "cooks treat" Basque Cheesecake milkshake Smile
