Peachy Cheesecake

peach cheesecake01


By far this is the yummiest and easiest cheesecake I've ever made hahaha well not that I've made that many in the first place. Thumbs up from all guinea pigs.

PEACHY CHEESECAKE

Crust:
150g Digestive biscuit crumbs
110g unsalted butter, melted

Filling:
250g cream cheese, softened
50g caster sugar
50g dairy whipping cream
400g canned peaches, drained and blended into puree
1 1/2 tbsp gelatine powder
2 tbsp water

Crust: Combine digestive biscuit crumbs with melted butter and press into the bottom of a 7" (18cm) loose based pan. Chill in the fridge until firm.

Filling: Beat cream cheese, sugar and whipping cream until smooth. Add in peach puree and mix well.

Mix gelatine powder with water, double-boiled till dissolved and mix into filling mixture. Pour onto crust and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

I find the melted butter was too much for 150g of crumbs, I had to add 2 more pieces of biscuits to have a less soggy crust. Else, everything was fine. Pictures were lousy even though taken in broad daylight due to hazy skies, duh!

Hi babe,
I wanted to try out this recipe too, may i know what is gelatine powder??

Thanks.

Jade,
You can find gelatine powder at baking supply shops or the baking section of any supermarts. Gelatine powder is a tasteless, odorless, almost colorless mixture of proteins that dissolves in hot water, but becomes a jelly when cooled, holding the water in a rubbery suspension. It's usually made from bovine's collagen found in the bones and cartilage. You can read more here http://www.ochef.com/909.htm

hi babe_KL, thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It saved me a lot of time as I was getting so stressed out on what cake to make for my bday.

Btw, the 1.5TBSP gelatine powder added with 2TBSP water was rather too thick. It was not stirrable at all. Did you have the same problem?So I added about 5TBSP water and in the end only used 2 TBSP of the mixture in the cake. Was a bit panicky as to whether this will affect the texture of the cake. But luckily, everyone esp hubby who tired it liked it :)
