Mango Cheesecake


Once you've made a basic cheesecake like the No Bake Cheesecake and New Yolk Cheesecake, inventing other varieties isn't all that difficult. In fact, for a cheesecake, the bottom layer consists of a crust or base made with biscuits or sponge cake. Whereas the main/thickest layer consists of a mixture of soft-fresh cheese, flavoured with fruits  - similar to this mango cheesecake. 

Instead of digestive biscuit for the bottom layer or crust, I used cream crackers and salted butter.  For the creamy top layer, its mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, fresh mango puree and sugar. Not really sure if anyone else have used cream crackers though fruits for the main layer is common. 

Ingredients
For the bottom layer/crust
250g cream crackers - crushed
100g salted butter 

For the top creamy layer
1 (about 500g) ripe mango - remove skin and seed.  Process/blend for a thick puree
250g mascarpone cheese
150g cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Method
For the bottom layer/crust
Crumble crushed cream crackers and butter together. 
Press the crumble into a greased springform pan. 
Leave it to set in the fridge for about an hour.

For the top layer
Whisk both types of cheese with sugar over low speed until smooth.
Add in mango puree and continue to whisk for a smooth consistency.
Pour over the bottom layer.
Bake on preheated oven at 180C for about 1 hour or until the top layer is fully set and does not jiggle at all. 
Cool down the cake and chill in the fridge.

  2. The cream cheese/marscapone blend are great together in cheesecakes and mango was a great choice of fruit. I am glad that you experimented with the crust some, I am always amazed at the variation that is out there. This does look like a winner-simply delicious!

  26. Missy - I think some of those who commented here did not read through to realise that this cheesecake needs baking. I don't think this cake can be done without baking.
