Orange Cheesecake


I've always been impressed with friends who bake cheesecakes for I perceived that one must be skilful to make. Of course cheesecake I think is a favourite among many. Just mention cheesecake and see how they will react - "I love cheesecake, my kids love cheesecake and cheesecake is so delicious. I wish I can have a slice or the whole cake now". Perception indeed. Not until I started making. Starting with the New Yolk cheesecake to the chocolate cheesecake and here's another - an eggless/vegetarian version. Vibrant, tangy-fruity and a crumbly bottom layer.

Ingredients
For the bottom layer
180g digestive biscuits - crushed
90g melted butter (use more if you want)

For the top/cheese layer
250g cream cheese ( about one stand pack sold at supermarkets)
1 tin condensed milk (400g)
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
3-4 drops of orange essence or 1 tsp orange zest (zest will be good)

Method
For the bottom layer
Crumble biscuits with butter.
Press/compact into a greased pan
Place in the fridge to set. 

For the top/cheese layer
Cream cheese till soft and smooth.
Pour in juice, condensed milk and essence/zest.
Continue to cream for a smooth consistency. 
Gently tilt and spread over the bottom/biscuit layer.
Bake at 170c for 1/2 hour.
(The cheese will be soft and jiggly/wobbly in the centre)
Let it cool down and if possible chill for 24 hours.
Slice and enjoy with orange slices (optional)

  17. Cheese cakes are one of my favorites, can have any day!! Last time I had couple of months ago was a blue berry cheese cake served cold! Indeed, they are costly. A blue berry cheese cake slice costed me 130 bucks here. I have tried many versions including lemon but never have tasted orange cheese cake, looks very inviting, fresh and just perfect. Love the color of the cream cheese. Also the addition of orange zest is very flavorsome any day. Also good to know that you like savory more than sweets!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. i make cheesecakes all the time for my job, but i don't think i've ever made one using oranges--great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thank you for coming up with such a creative recipe! =)

    The most I've gone is to bake a lemon-infused cheesecake, never oranges. Too bad I can only enjoy the sight of it and not the taste, as I'm taking the time off to cleanse my body from dairy products such as cheese and ice-cream. =/

  30. Hi Nava, your orange cheesecake look very luscious. I love the fragrant scent of the orange, always very inviting.

    It's very expensive to eat a slice of cheesecake, not worth the spent that kind of money just to get a small slice. I seldom buy cake from shop or restaurant, most time prefer home made.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  34. I'm sure the scented orange cheesecake tastes great! I've yet to try baking my cheesecake; wonder wonder if there's a difference between baked & non-baked cheesecakes......

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a lovely cheesecake. I love the bright and sunny orange flavor as well. I agree, I seldom buy cakes or pastries outside unless I have to! hahaha....it's make much more sense to make it at home, with better ingredients and a lot cheaper too. hehehe...thanks for sharing this one.

    ReplyDelete
