Baked Strawberry & Vanilla Cheescake Recipe

Rich, velvety cheesecake is the perfect partner for sweet strawberries. So I decided my first bake of 2019 to be a creamy strawberry and vanilla baked cheesecake.

Preparation time:

45 minutes, plus cooling and chilling

Cooking time:

1 hour 45 minutes

Ingredients


BASE

60g unsalted butter, melted, plus

extra for greasing

200g oat biscuits (I used Britannia nutri choice)

20g toasted flaked almonds

1 egg white, lightly beaten (from one of the separated eggs from the filling)

FILLING

840g cream cheese, at room temperature

200g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

4 tsp strawberry jam (I used St. Dalfour)

2 tsp strawberry syrup (I used Hershey’s)

2 tbsp coconut flour (I used Bob’s red mill organic coconut flour)

2tbsp oat flour (I used Bob’s red mill whole grain oat flour)

60ml double cream

150ml soured cream

5 eggs, 2 separated

2 tbsp lemon juice

TOPPING

200g strawberries

Few mint leaves

Method

1) Preheat the oven to 356 ̊F. Grease a deep springform cake tin; line the base with baking parchment, then the side so that it sits 3cm above the rim. For the base, put the biscuits and nuts in a plastic food bag and bash to crumbs with a rolling pin. Pour into a bowl and mix in the melted butter. Tip into the tin and even out with the back of a spoon. Bake for 5 minutes, then brush with a little egg white and bake for 2 minutes. Cool while you make the filling.

2) Lower the oven to 284-300 ̊F. Put the soft cheese, sugar, vanilla and flour in a large bowl and slowly beat to a thick, smooth mixture using electric beaters. Mix in the double and soured creams until incorporated. Slowly beat in the 4 whole eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Finally, add in the strawberry jam, strawberry syrup, 2 egg yolks, lemon juice and a pinch of salt.

3 Pour the mixture over the cool base. Bake for 1 hour20 minutes, until set. Turn the oven off, but leave the cheesecake inside for at least 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature, then chill for at least 2 hours.

4) For the topping, arrange the strawberries over the top of the cheesecake. Also I added some mint leaves. You can use whatever you like for the topping because this is your time to be creative.
